Vacation/Staycation

I'm taking a couple of weeks off work, & instead of going somewhere we are staying home. I've been  getting some Spring cleaning done, plus the stone floor in the entryway project that we've been wanting to get to for a long time.  Here is the floor with just the mortar. We we will do the grout on Friday.

I also did the stones on top of the pony-walls. There will be some wood trim to finish the copper walls after the grouting is done. 

Right now this entry leads into a work/storage room, most of what's here will go out into the new garage
eventually, & then I will finish off the workroom into a wet studio, where I can dye & paint on fabric to my heart's content. I also intend to have a small desk set up for lampwork bead making.... maybe by the time I can retire...

I love the way this looks! Great job. I always pictured having a stone something like that! So happy for you! Enjoy your week!
