The Upstairs Floor is In

For the past few days I've been working on the wooden flooring. The sheets were stained and coated with satin finish polyacrylic (water based), templates were made, sections were cut and fitted like a jigsaw puzzle. Today I glued it into place. The flatiron is holding down a place where two sections met and wanted to buckle. They are perfectly flat now. This is the room that will have the work tables and quilting frame. This is the room that will be the studio apartment. I like the look of the rug on the oak floor. The baseboard is just leaning against the wall. Fitting and gluing that into place will be the next step.
I gave the stair rails a coat of polyacrylic so they will blend better with the floor. They can be installed now. And we bought a 2' x 4' piece of 3/4" plywood at the lumber yard on Saturday that now needs to be painted green. It's to replace the quarter inch board under the house; it is too flimsy to provide proper support.
Oh ... I bought a bottle of liquid starch today. I'm going to use it to hang the kitchen wallpaper. I'm thinking about getting to the wallpaper ... really.
