Five Minute Friday Crave #fmf #amwriting


This week the Five Minute Friday writing prompt is Crave.

Usually when I hear the word crave I think about different kinds of foods and drinks. I do have things I crave, but I thought I would take a different prospective this time.

I have been craving wood......as in doors and trim. We purchased our home about 12 years ago. It is an older home built around 1925. It had been repossessed by the VA and needed a lot of work. The good thing was the VA had someone come in and clean up everything that was left here. We have done a lot of work to our home and we are far from done. It originally had paneling and a drop down ceiling and I wanted that gone before we moved in.

We just recently started replacing some doors. Our front door was too small and we had to remove the frame to get some of our furniture inside, so we put in a 36" door. I stained that along with a door to our family room and our downstairs bathroom this past week.

Now I am craving wood trim for these three doors. I was planning on starting on the doors in the dining room but I want to see these doors finished, so the new plan is to get the trim stained and up before starting on the next room.

I am so excited and I can't wait until they are finished.

I love wood too, and get excited when the wood is left intact in old houses on reno shows.

I love old homes. Ours is not very old, but does have a lot of wood trim and floors. I think I am ready to paint the wooden cabinet and maybe the trim. Or maybe stain it darker would be pretty! I never thought of that! Thanks for sharing.
