On the left Megan making her Mocha cupcakes for Past and Presents last day party.
They get their taste from powdered Espresso. On the right the finished cupcakes. Complete with a chocolate covered coffee bean. They were outrageous. The frosting to die for.
Megan really outdid herself this time!

My room is back together YIPPEEEE! I love the floor. There are so many shades of grey.

Little 'm" Megan in her air boot.
She won't have to have her
Achilles tendon operated on which
is good news!!!
Long recovery but no more
crutches and is getting around
much better. Love the shades.

One coat of sealer is all she wrote.
Don't want the wood to get any

come back in a year or two and
reseal it!
I have no idea how Jan and Hugo did it.... But inside a 10 X 10 bathroom already containing
cabinets, a triangular spa tub, and a shower... they put a king size bed, mattress and box spring,
an amoire, a tall chest of drawers, two night stands, a desk, a chest and a huge couch!!!!
Magicians to be sure!!!
                                                  Sanded and ready to seal the floor !

Two views of the Amish barn wood

I just love the colors in the wood.

Top photo Jan and Hugo working on the floor.
Bottom photo shows knots Jan is taking from extra boards to fill knotholes--amazing you can see one he
has filled in at the top of the photo.
