In the last few days I’ve seen mention by a few people who are in process of remodeling/redecorating their homes. Since that very project is foremost on my mind these days, I thought I’d create a thread wherein we could all bitch about how slowly things are going, or rejoice when something finally gets done.
Byron and I have a bunch of stuff to do. Four of five bedrooms need carpet, all five bedrooms need paint. All three bathrooms need to be gutted (or nearly), and the kitchen is in for complete destruction. The family room needs new walls (currently paneling over cement) and new carpet (currently 20 year old, perpetual smell of smoke and dog pee, no pad, over cement) and the laundry/storage room needs a serious organization system. All the bedroom closets are small (apartment size) so we’re thinking the best thing to do is install closet organizers.
What a pain in the ass. That’s every room in the house! Of course, that doesn’t include 25 years of accumulated stuff that needs to be gotten rid of (we inherited the house when my mother-in-law died).
Good news, though! I have someone coming to clean the chimney next week for the low, low price of $55 (that includes everything…YAY!), and we finally found someone who was willing to take away the ancient deep freeze and prehistoric washing machine.
So how are all the other TM’s revamping projects coming along?
Veni, Vidi, Visa … I came, I saw, I bought.
