Baltic Trade Days


Ha!

 if that doesn't catch your interest nothing will!  I just wanted to show you the Floors  for the boxes, I follow Giac's Blog and I copied  used his method to make the floors for my boxes.


if I had been thinking I would have done the ceilings too but I was too busy staining trying to make it lay flat (I had to put bricks on it to keep it down Giac never has these problems I must be doing it wrong)

and this si why I didnt get more done, this is Rich playing on the scooter that he got from his Sister (her son used to ride it around town) We've had it for 5 years and He's never done anything to it. So he got it started and road it around town. I waited until he went off with his friends and I rode it down to the bank and up to the Tolands ..hehehehe

so that's it for today I will show you more when I get more done
and thank you Caroline you are right I'll put it up for a few days until I figure out what to do about my store front

Hugs
Marisa

  1. Your floor looks so nice. If I were to imitate something Giac doing, I am quite sure that it would never come near his, I think he has very special skill and a special patience.

    enjoy

  5. Hello Marisa! One of the reasons that I enjoy your postings as much as I do is because of the quirky honesty that you always include in them! So many blogs only show you the finished product and none of the aggravating and unexpected roadblocks that show up along the way! No doubt we all experience them from time to time but you present yours with so much honest humor that I know that I can totally relate to what is happening! Your blog is full of unexpected fun and I thank you for making MY Monday so enjoyable today because of your sharing Yours! I also love these little video clips that you have been installing lately! What a unique feature and what great trips down memory lane they have been! You Rock!

  6. Hello Marisa,
    I think the floor looks beautiful...I love the color! I stain my floor after it has been glued down to thick illustration board subfloors. After they are stained and the finish has dried, I usually weight them down for 24 hours because it does not lie flat...I use books, dumbbells, weights, mdf board...anything that will work. You'll see, your floor will look awesome!
    Big hug,
    Giac

  8. No matter what kind of flooring I choose, tiles or wood veneer or whatever: I always have trouble keeping them flat! And you know what; sometimes they go in flat, and stand like arch a few days afterwards...grrr
    Nowadays I take a really thin piece of MDF and cover it with white glue on both sides. On top of that I glue the real flooring en cut it out in the shape of the room. Good luck with your floor (it looks quite allright actually).

  9. Looking forward to see more of the floor, maybe it will get flat when it has dried? Or maybe you can place a heavy book on top and let it get flat over night? (or several days..) =)

  11. The floor is really pretty. Something a friend of mine told me years ago that might help reduce bowing. I stain both sides of the wood. Seems to counter act the other side. If I am painting wood, I use a spray matte sealant on both sides before painting. If that doesn't work, well bricks are good too!

  12. Love the floor! Did you stain both sides of the wood? A friend of mine gave me that hint a number of years ago. Also spraying matte sealant on wood I am going to paint really helps. Bricks are good too!

  13. Great idea to do your floors yourself. I think good floors really make a room look realistic.
