Our 1970's House Makeover Part 5: My Biggest Flooring Mistake

Aaaaaand we're back.
So, if you've been paying attention, you may have realized that I just fell off the face of the Earth mid-renovation. 

Obviously, something went awry.
Let's not beat around the bush.

I temporarily messed up my floors. 
And, rather than divulge my mishaps as they were happening (Get. Real.) I instead spent a few weeks crying into Cheese's fur, planning my escape to Paraguay, and wiping pizza grease on my sweatpants uniform.

How To Make DIY Gold Leaf Abstract Art

Hey ya'll! 
I'm taking a break from renovation updates for a week or two. I have so much to tell you. I can barely stand the wait, but I think it's best to let everything get finished and then share everything.

In the meantime....

Our 1970's House Makeover Part 4: Behind the Scenes

Hey ya'll. I don't have any house pictures for you today. I know you probably want to smoosh me. But, this is real life, and real life is messy and rarely goes as planned. However, I can officially confirm that the floor stain is in the building!!! 
We have lift off. 
I might have pictures for you next week, or I might just have another picture of a breakfast sandwich. 
I'm learning to stop predicting things.
Watch me do it 5 times in this post.

Our 1970's House Makeover Part 3: Progress Report

Our 1970's House Makeover Part Three: A Progress Report

Hey ya'll! 

Our renovation is about to go into week five, but you won't be hearing any complaints from this girl. I've been waiting for this all to happen for four years now and I'll survive five tiny little weeks of dust.
But just between you and me (we're whispering right now), I could really use a brain massage, a ballpark hotdog, a fully put-back-together house, and a weeklong nap in Jamaica. 
End whisper.

Our 1970's House Makeover Part Two: Knocking Down Walls


Hey ya'll! I'm back! I've kinda been a hot mess lately, crammed in a bedroom with two cats who think they're mini-buffaloes, living off Papa John's, and struggling to form a coherent thought amidst the dust and noise. So, thank you for bearing with me during this weird-house-limbo-time. Despite the dust, I'm so excited, and we're finally making progress. So, I've got some fun things to share with you today.
Cats + pepperoni pizza + dust = life.
