A LONG LABOUR OF LOVE ALMOST DONE.....+ TOMTE/NISSE
Finally after all these months our floor is almost finished. By tomorrow everything will be back in place and we can enjoy our distressed floor. When I decided to do this I knew it would be a long process, sanding, painting, distressing, staining and finally varnishing 3 coats to each separate board, 140 in all. The pictures do not do the floor justice, it looks like worn blue jeans and we just love it. Would I do another one. NO. I did our bedroom with the floor already laid out and that was hard , this one to get the proper effect had to be done individually but it was worth it ...once is enough though.
In between getting the floor done I have been getting ready for the HOLIDAY HANDMADE MARKET on November 25 in Guelph, Ontario at the Gilded Cage Boutique. I just finished a batch of Elder ( because they are white) Tomte/Nisses and they look fabulous. 10 days and counting, fingers crossed they all find a home.
