So, I’ve been MIA for a while. It has been Woman-vs-Boxes and Man-vs-Dirt around here lately and for a while there, the boxes (and dirt) were winning. Until, a few days ago when I looked those boxes square in the eye and said “No more!” Armed in my comfy pj’s, super cozy slippers, and the “I Mean Business” hair tie, I was a woman on a mission: to rid the dining room of boxes and create a space to eat and entertain.
After hours of picking away at the stacks and stacks of boxes we eventually found the floor to what would become the dining room.
What we found was a neglected hardwood floor in need of some serious elbow-grease and lots of TLC. A couple rounds of sweeping (gotta love those Swiffer Sweepers!) followed by a few hearty moppings with the wonderfully-magical Murphy’s Oil Soap preceded a hefty coat of varnish to bring back the luster and shine of this beautiful hardwood floor.
Add a decorative “rug” (made of recycled plastic), a table, and a few empty bookcases and wallah! A dining room!
We are now ready to entertain. Who’s in?
