I have 3 projects I have currently stalled out on because I am waiting for a product.

Project #1 is the basement stairs. I am going to strip the paint and sand the treads to the natural wood and then either stain or leave it natural.

But before I decide I need to see the flooring because I ordered this khaki oak LVP without actually seeing it in real life.

Some of you just cringed, but this is pretty typical of the way I roll. Ha. I figure matching stain to the floor is a lot easier than the other way around (cheaper too).

Stay tuned! The flooring arrives today actually!

Project #2 is the bar and sink countertop. I have never had so much difficulting sanding down a varnish which means this wood must have been coated 326 times or it is professional grade.

Regardless I am going to strip it off using a super simple process that I will be sure to document and post!

Project #3 has to do with this wall where the bar top will go. I have been wracking my brain to figure out a way to add some dimension and depth to the basement walls without over-investing. I think I’ve come up with the perfect solution.

Time will tell! I will give you a hint though. I am channeling the last fixer-upper basement reno as seen below . . . 🙂

For the last month, Zach has been telling people that he is getting a nose job. There has been more than one woman a little irked at the idea until he explained that his nose job was a sinus surgery.
