I purchased some new door knobs about a month ago, but they had been sitting in one of our cabinets waiting to be installed. Last weekend I finally got around to replacing them. All of the downstair knobs have been replaced, eventually we intend to replace all of the door knobs upstairs.
This morning we applied a coat of Tried & True Original Wood Finish to the walnut wall in the master bedroom. It is a mixture of polymerized linseed oil and beeswax. It is non-toxic and had very little odor. The finish gave the wall some real depth, and we are quite pleased with the results.
After taking some time to appreciate the beauty of the wall, we took our two labs to Porter Park in Prairie Village to attend "Amanda's Dog Festival". It was a benefit started by Amanda and some of her friends to raise funds for KSDS, which is a non-profit organization that assists disabled people by providing trained canine assistants. Katy and Morgan were lucky enough to have their photograph taken with Scooby Doo, Clifford, and Amanda herself!
