Home improvement project, one week in
On the plus side, a week of home improvement has left my home with new carpeting, new flooring, new paint and this extremely cool bedroom for my toddler.
On the other hand, this is the state of my living room:
So yeah -- not done yet.
My project is of monumental importance to me, but it's hardly impressive in the grand scheme of home-improvement tales. Do-it-yourself efforts are always more interesting.
I can think of two ongoing, local examples being detailed in blogs: Project Rowhouse (mentioned in this space when the partners living there got on HGTV) and young-adult author Mary Miltner's blog (where she notes the joys of fixing up a home whose previous owner thought comic books were good wallpaper).
