For those with a keen eye, you will notice that my blog is undated the morning after the fact. It has become very clear to me that doing this blog late at night just isn't going to work. By midnight my fingers and my little brain aren't always connected as well as they should be, and often I've been having a...nap...and don't wake up until 1 or 2am and then it's definately just straight to bed for me. So, in the interest of actually sounding like I have all my brain cells charging while I'm typing, I'm going to do yesterday's entry first thing the following morning.
I now have the staircase sealed and the gloss on the walnut treads does look good (if I do say so myself). I sealed the white as well and I have my fingers crossed that the sealer will not yellow. I also sealed the ceiling side of the second and third floor pieces.
I spent some time thinking about the lighting and since I have a few lights left over from my "Westerfeld", I'm going to use those, add more as needed. I'm actually going to be economical! I'm still trying to figure out just how to hide the wiring but I suspect one of those light bulb moments will come to me....shortly I hope.
