making our floor not suck: an essay in photos

What our floor has looked like for a year or more.

After sanding the mud room for a frillion years, it looked pretty okay. Stupid tarpaper.

Here is the floor all primed.

After the coat of Country Dairy floor paint, and you're all, "Meh." But wait . . .

Woohoo! See how awesome?

I am serious. Look at it from this angle!

Also I painted the mud room, because it looked super janky next to the pretty new floor.

It required much money and paint and measuring and tape and WORK, but I am so, so happy that it is done. It looks so good, I want to paint the rest of my floors.

The other thing we've done this week is take a bunch of goats to the auction, where they will be bought by people most likely wanting to eat them or have pets of some sort. Good luck with Tilde, y'all, because she is not nice. We kept Tenacious D and Edna's boy, and both of Catwoman's babies, so they can take care of milking her when necessary. I can't tell you how nice it is not to hear Dingus Squatford yelling at us all day.

Good job on the floors. Isn't so nice when it's all done?!

I was reading a magazine and came across some plans for a disbudding box and I thought of you. Let me know if you'd like them. Anyway, hope that you find lots of time to enjoy not having Tilde and the rest around.

Looks great! I am so impressed with the straight, even lines...I know that is majorly time intensive! Way to go!
