This was definitely a labor of love - It started because my husband and I moved into a new house that had dark wood paneling all through the living room. To us, it made the room look dated and dark. I really did not want to paint the wood, so somehow I got it in my head that I could keep the wood look and just lighten it up by sanding the wood. I thought it would be so easy! (Clearly I had never sanded before or even really done home projects, LOL).
Of course, once I got home from my Home Depot trip with my brand new sander, I soon realized it wasn't going to be so easy and that I was in over my head. Determined to finish, my stubbornness prevailed and I continued. 8 weeks later - my living room is finally complete!
It was an exhausting project, especially for a one person team most of the time, but I am so happy with the way it turned out that I really do think it was worth it!
