Here's where I'd soldiered on to by a little after 3:00 AM Friday morning:
Lightning-like progress, isn't it?
Worked all day yesterday, outside the house, for money (fortunately I didn't have to report for duty until noon). Working outside again today, and I still have to finish writing my sermon for tomorrow when I get home. So . . . I might be able to get to the floor again Sunday after church and dinner, maybe not. We'll see. It's a little depressing, since I'd hoped to be nailing the 1st floor hallway trim back up by Monday afternoon.
Give me another week. I figure I have at least five-sixths of the job still to do, though that doesn't include the time it'll take to get the red color retinted more brown, if I can. It's not as bright in person as it appears in the photos, but the floor's upstaging my pretty William Morris wallpaper and I'd like to dull it down a bit. The yellow color probably needs a bit of the same. Have to finish the first coat in the original colors, then I'll decide.
While we're at it-- a very happy Twelfth Night to you, and may you get the bean in the cake.
*Edit-- Hmm. Maybe the problem is the yellow. Maybe if I painted it over the second time with a brown, and left the terracotta red alone?
