The remodel of the living room is getting close to being finished, but the kitchen which is part of one big room along with the living room is just getting started. We just completed the first section of cabinet refinishing (the left side is refinished). We love the way it turned out....it matches the crown molding pretty well and the method we used was pretty easy. We start the next section tomorrow.....Kim is roughing up and deglossing the cabinet surfaces and hopefully we get some staining done too. We will be putting in all new appliances and I am going to pour concrete countertops....we will see how that goes.

I bought this old chair today. It is very small and I am not sure what we will use it for.....but for 90 bucks, it is unique enough that we will figure something out for it. The shop owner said it is a stool that was used in Spain to watch cock fighting....who knows if that is true but it still makes for something different. One thing we have thought about was a place to put folded bath towels in our bathroom once it is remodeled.....any other ideas????

There is a new marathon (also a 50K) in April that looks like it could be a very nice race. It starts in Willard, Missouri at the Frisco Highline trail head which is just north of Springfield and runs along a crushed limestone trail to Bolivar. It is just a 2.5 hour drive to Bolivar to catch a bus to the start and there is race morning packet pickup.....I am thinking this would make an excellent one day race trip.....
