It has become our normal on Saturdays now to get a project done or partially done or maybe just a tiny bit done because it’s a huge deal to make all new kitchen cabinet doors and we keep getting sidetracked because there is always something shiny catching our attention.

We’re redoing the kitchen right now, which is a terribly large and time-consuming project and because we’re a glutton for punishment last week Rabbit and I decided we would add to the ever-lasting job by sanding and restaining our 14-foot long dining table which had become sticky and glittery (don’t ask) and gross. This sanding job that we thought would take a day or so after the help of urethane and stain stripper has turned out to take more than a week and “required” the purchase of a fourth sander and so much time that we could have been using to shop at Target.

We now have two sanders on the job and the hubster and I have both been working on the thick layers of stain and urethane that heavily coat this huge table and my hands are still vibrating and Rabbit says his fingers feel like they have springs in them.

I should add here that when I say I have been sanding, I mean I sanded once for like a half hour. Just enough to say I helped sand.  In my defense, Lanie has been sick this week and she requires me to squish and squeeze her and kiss all over her cheeks when she’s not feeling well so I really couldn’t do much to help anyway.

I’ll get a picture of the kitchen cabinets we’ve been working on for the last month and write up that post later if I have the time. They’re going to be beautiful.
