I haven't posted in a while, been busy with work and life and such, but I wanted to get a quick post in today on my lunch break. In between all of the craziness I have found a little time to work on the saloon. I have completely finished the downstairs floor. And let me tell you it was ALOT of skinny sticks! I'll have to look and see how many bags I went through. But I still think it was worth it - to me it looks so much better than the panels of wood flooring that I bought from Hobby Lobby. I like it even more just because it isn't perfect. I like how some boards look like they are different colors and how some have cracks and didn't fit exactly together. I think it's going to make the saloon look more original. Next I'll do the upstairs floor and then decide on a stain color. I could not have done this without my Easy Cutter - that was the best piece of equipment that I have invested in so far.
And here's a new pic of our little Olive. I've been trying my best to explain to her that what she calls her "beanbag" is actually in fact David's hackey sack. She doesn't understand why her favorite place to sit keeps disappearing. I believe that she thinks David uses it as a beanbag as well because she just keeps saying, "But it's Olive size!"
