Another huge project that’s taken up our spare time over the past couple of months is refinishing the exposed beams in our living room ceiling. We had to sand off all the paint, which took FOREVER. Then we had to sand again with a finer grade, fill in the holes, condition the wood, stain them (we mixed two stains together to get a color we liked), and finally seal them (two coats).
But at long last they are done, and you can bask in their beauty. (I love Mika’s stealthy photo bomb in the pic below.)
We also did some really messy electrical work. Yay!
