Post #101 Calls for a Makeover!

Some of you may know that I have a LONG to-do list for fixing up our house.
Not all of them are super expensive projects, but they are all pretty much time consuming.

We've done a TON of projects since we moved in in October 2005, but I've still got a few more tricks up my sleeve... I've just been putting them off!
(Maybe I'll post some before and after photos of the projects we've already done... be on the lookout!)

Well, BooMama is going to motivate me!

She is encouraging us to do an HGTV style makeover...


Here's the idea...
You make a list of home repairs/changes/improvements/projects that you would like to complete.

Here's what I would like to accomplish...
1. Paint our guest room
2. Re-hang all wall decor
3. Purchase and hang faux-wood blinds
4. Change out the light switch and switch plate
5. Cover the headboard

Here's the catch...
That's 5 weeks. That sounds like a long time, but we'll be gone for a week AND I have 2 children to watch during the day!

Wish me luck! :)

You can do it...good luck! Boomama had a great idea...I need to jump on board, too.

So, check with your dentist to see if they can recommend somebody if you think you need to get your gums fixed. I hear ya....I was praying so hard before I went the first time that I would make it without my two teeth falling out! :)

Oh good Lord, I would never get done by then.

We've also done a million and one projects since we bought our house, and some, like painting the outside, were really major! I was also thinking of posting some Extreme Makeover style before and after photos. Maybe we should do a parade of homes type thing? Oooh, that would be fun!

Man, I'm such a decorating nerd.
