I finally picked up my camera this afternoon and got the pictures of the floors in their “before” state. I think that once they’re sanded and stained, they will look great. I am pretty sure that they’re the original 1900-era floors because of the shrinkage of the wood.
This is the guest room floor. This is the workroom/office floor. Looks like someone was dragging furniture around!This is my bedroom floor. This floor is much darker than the other two floors. Funnily, I think that all of the floors are different woods.
I took a break from meetings, signing more papers and packing to go to the Second Annual Trunk Show at McLain-Wiesand. David’s staff used fabrics from the vendors - Donghia, Hines, Thibaut, Scalamandre, Schumacher and Zoffany – to make some fabulous fashions and put on a little fashion show (more when I get some pictures!).
One of the vendors, Scalamandre, had the MOST incredible tote bags, and I am giving one away to one of my readers. The bag has their iconic Zebra print and is made of a sturdy plastic/canvas material. Click the link for the story of the Zebra print. It’s a bright lipstick red and has classic black and white zebra print sides. And you also get a great Scalamandre tape measure! Just leave a comment mentioning your favourite Scalamandre print, and we’ll choose the winner on Monday, May 30th.
