There is nothing to compete with that look,those wide boards with natures work showing thru every inch. Modern "hardwood" flooring looks sick beside that. Maybe my interest in those old wide boards tells a bit about my age & what i lived in during my earlier yrs.
W&C,thanks for the update on that fantastic project. :D

Gorgeous. Now that "that's" done, will you fill the room with cribs, and toy boxes? :lol:

Thanks.
My desk and other junk is going in there, so the other, larger room will be available when my grandkids come to visit! My bedroom is next.
No coal stove in that room, the Harman is one flight down.

I am about to rip out a beautiful hand made bar to make a play room for the kids, I might feel better about it if I knew John was going through a second round of diapers and cribs.
