E is for Emergency! Eeeek!

Today I want to show you a series of pictures--each one represents a few more days to a week of work as the workers came in to make Doc Holiday more and more gorgeous...
Against The Grain, a Savannah floor finishing company, came in to redo the floors which had been painted.  They began by sanding...
Then the stain and first coat of polyurethane was applied.  Better already!
We were thrilled with the floors once the final topcoat was applied.

It's so purdy:)  Let's look at another one!

Then the floors were covered and the walls were primed.
Next came the paint!  We used an old Martha Stewart color called Glass of Milk, MSL 8002. 
And how do you like the little nautical lights we found for each bunk?  They were from good ole Home Depot.

This is how everything looked the day I showed up with my U-Haul truck full of goodies.

The bunkroom was fabulous but eeeek!  It lacked an important thing--bunkbeds!  I was expecting four children to arrive for a visit in a few days so it's an understatement to say I felt a bit stressed!  Finally I was able to get my contractor to see that it was time to get them built now--a bonafide emergency--If they didn't do it right away they were going to have to take me to the emergency room!

They got them built.  In time.  Deep breath.  I'll show you next time!


  1. I'm really enjoying all your posts, it's interesting to see how everything comes together.

    1. Thanks Julie! It's fun for me to look back and see pictures of the progress too. I appreciate your comment!
