If you’ve followed my blog (as slow as I’ve been..*wink*), you know that my husband Glenn and I have been working hard to complete our foreclosure renovation. We have an ultimate goal of 5 years to complete everything, and this started in December 2014. The dining room is not done, as this is just an update, so please excuse the partial finishes in all of the photos. The floor is birch hardwood from Menards and was the first big project Glenn completed, besides our heat/cracked pipes. The walls definitely need a painting, and the brown window next to the table will be replaced in the spring. Our sliding door is brand new, but my perfectionist husband now wants a different one that will “be a better fit”, so out that goes and in comes the new sometime also this spring. Once that’s installed, he’ll be able to complete the trim and also fix the heater covers and add baseboard.
