Now What???

I am just about finished with the floor.  In case you are interested, these are the colors of Prismacolor pencils that I used.
Top to bottom, here are the numbers and names, 941 light umber, 914 cream, 1017 clay rose, 911 olive green,1043 metallic rose, 963 warm grey light, 1072 French gray, 964 warm gray very light.

After all of the coloring, I put on a couple of coats of satin finish, water based varnish.

Yesterday, I also tried out some of the new wire.  I am not sure what the stone is.  It is one of those that I got at Black Market Minerals for a dollar last year.  Not bad for a cheep stone.



These two were from the same source and also a dollar a piece. Quartz crystal. 

The photo doesn't do them justice.  My hand is not the best of backgrounds, but I couldn't seem to get the crystal to the left to keep from rolling over and playing dead.

Anyway, that's all I have done in the past 24 hours, work wise.

I am going back and ask Tessie a lot more question about what she wants done with the house.  Now that the floor is essentially done, I have to find something else to do to it.  Flying blind here...

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey! I also like the way the floor has turned out and the way the surface texture of the stone slabs has been highlighted is Fabulous! I applaud your finished floor and I think that Tessie will be pleased too!
