We had the horizontal ledges of the buffet fully sanded down to bare fir, restained them and did a thick layer of lacquer over the top to protect them from wear & tear, and the sunlight.
The original oak hardwood flooring needed some serious refinishing, walls had some plaster repair, a few electrical outlets were added from the opposite side during the kitchen renovation, and this girl (yes, me) sanded, stained and refinished all the woodwork.

|Hello Flash, View into the Living Room.|
Future plans include putting paneling in below the picture rail (it's minimal and not in any of the pictures above), and I'm working on some artwork here in AZ to set along the rails that ties in an Oregon theme that we started for this room.
