Falling in love all over again

I chose one bedroom and the hallway to do first, sort of as a test to make sure the floors weren't going to look horrible with a coat of SealCoat.

Nope. They reminded me why I love shellac, why I love antique heart pine, why I love that house, and why I loved doing this work way back when.

We burned out trying to live in the house and finish the remodel at the same time. And the new house is great. But a lot of it is not our style and we still have boxes and clutter and trash all over the place. The bungalow is cozy and comfortable and warm.

Five more rooms to go and a couple coats of poly. I really do hope the bungalow's next family is able to enjoy it.
