A little elbow grease via some 180 grit sandpaper...

And this afternoon I sucked the missus in to working her stain magic on the wood. That is something she is good at. I knew all that art school training would come in handy for something one day!

Tomorrow, when it is good and dry, I will start adding a few coats of the oil based urethane.

I figured I had better take advantage of the missus leg troubles and get rid of that awful yellow paint that she loves so much. I can't stand it myself.

It's the first primer coat underway here.

This wall has been unearthed after yet another archeological excavation.

Honest to Pete I don't think we have seen this side of the wall for three years. Pretty grungy when I took all the crap out of the way, now it has three coats of fresh Varathane. Looks way better.

Strange that your post telling about the quake didn't show up on my puter until this morning, I was wondering if you had your computer knocked out. You got the rail looking great and everything else, are you going to put a transom above the door in the bed room with all the windows? All your craftsmanship is just beautiful.

We are glad to see your Missus up and about a little now.

Thanks for letting me know about that post not showing up right away Jim. I lost my internet connection a couple of days ago for several hours, and when that happens it often becomes hit and miss for a day or two after that.

That window wall is in the breakfast nook, no transom above that door.

The missus is still only to get out of bed two or three times a day and is limited to just a very few yards walking at a time. It's still two steps forward and one step back. Looks like she is out of commission for the duration of this good weather - at the very least.

Well, we have flat water this morning, after 3 days of steady wind, so may go over for groceries and a few building supplies.

That railing job was fantastic! Would have never though of approaching it that way.

Got some more varnish on the front rails today.

Started the cutting and sealing of the tiles for the breakfast nook. I expect to be setting the first ones tomorrow.

First coat of popcorn white is on the nook wall, second coat will be done before any tiles go down.

Starting on the tile layout in the breakfast nook. Lots of cutting here!

A dry fit test run first...tomorrow some will get stuck down.

I like that design, it is sharp, it is really going to look great once you finish it.
