For the past six days, DH has been doing the finish work on the American black cherry shelving for the home office. Hood Ornament helped on nights two, five and six, in return for which we fed him dinner! The aid and assistance was welcome, as DH doesn't like this part of the project, and HO's participation cut the varnish time in half.
Things get really interesting when the two of them start to talk about politics, but they kept it light tonight and the last coat is done! Soon we'll be picking up the piles and piles of books that have littered the house since last summer, and I'll be decorating those gorgeous shelves.
