We moved into this house almost 8 years ago. It was an absolute mess. Every surface in the house had to be scrubbed and painted or sanded and re-finished, or in the case of the bathroom, gutted and replaced. I loved the entire project and was able to draw good boundaries about how much to do right then and what we could wait to do later.
The later projects, however, have tended not to be completed. The kitchen has some new cabinets built to match the originals, but two years later they are still waiting to be painted. The garage has a new foundation, but it is also awaiting paint. The bathroom, which was done in a very economical fashion, could use some upgrading and a fresh coat of paint.
Are you sensing a theme?
I gave this blog a new look the other day, but as it turned out the template is buggy, and Typepad recommends trying another while they work on the bugs. It’s fun for me, because I love picking out paint!
Do you enjoy redecorating? Paint or paper? Hardwood or carpet? Do-it-yourself or hiring the experts? Tell me all about it in the comments!
