We’ve got a lot of work to do in our house, so we try to chip away at it as best we can amidst our busy schedules. One of our biggest projects has been/is to redo the downstairs bathroom.

When we moved in, every piece of wood in the bathroom was painted a bright (ugly) gold color. In the rest of the house (with the exception of the kitchen and the upstairs bathroom) , the wood was already stripped and refinished. These old houses have such amazing wood that I can’t fathom why someone would EVER paint over it.

We have started the process of refinishing the wood in the bathroom. Tonight, after coming home from dinner at David’s folks’ house, we spend an hour stripping and scraping.

This is a picture of some of the amazing wood grain we’ve uncovered.
