Sanding Away

Today and the next few days are going to be non photography days. Right now our house looks like one of those abandoned houses with all of the furniture covered up in drop cloths. After 24 years of living the woodwork in our house is in need of a major overhaul. Most of the wood will be fine as most of the nicks and scratches can be sanded out. Some of the windowsills are too far gone from the ravages of the sun. Those we have already sanded and painted. Today I am finishing up all of the sanding and tomorrow I will stain it all with a pretty neutral natural looking stain. Then on Thursday I will start laying down some marine varnish to protect it. It's going to look practically new again. I think God does that with us sometimes too. He lets us go and do our own thing and then he brings us back around to where we should be by knocking off all the rough edges we have begun accumulating. God bless, chris


  1. Thanks for the encouragement, Darren. I'm pretty close to finishing all the woodwork with only two window ledges left to do. Then it is on to redoing the doors. The window seat and the planter box look close to brand new.
