Because I LOVE beautiful houses and have somewhat limited resources for said houses I have learned to renovate.
Yes, I even painted my dorm room - I was one of those.
I have ripped out kitchens, tiled floors and counters and tub decks, landscaped, finished floors - you name it. This project may have gotten the best of me. It took months and months and it grew and grew. But here is the finished bathroom - looks just like the day it was finished back in 1925.
And the dining room...
As often happens in renovations one thing led to another and now I find I need to pull all of the painted toe molding and scrape and repaint all of the baseboards and replace the toe moulding with the finished oak variety - it makes my rooms look brand new.
Luckily, like childbirth - the results tend to outweigh and blur the pain.
Oy, my aching back.
