the ugly tile floor, I will wait to post pictures on that one.
I was beginning to despair over how long it took to make progress but...
Now. let me explain that this monster house has an insane amount of square footage, but it is missing these things: a decent sized laundry room, a linen closet, a designated office space, and the master bedroom is completely open to the rest of the house:
The first thing we are doing is closing up the master bedroom (seriously the echoing in this house is horrific. I need painkillers to live here, but my doctor doesn't view this is as a medical problem. WHATEVER.)
Then I am closing up this dining room and making it into a home office/den/the-place-where-we-keep-the-massive-liquor-cabinet.
And I'm currently cooking the hinges from this buffet to get the paint off them. I am thinking of repainting this piece ivory:
$37. And building kitchen banquettes out of stuff from the dumpster. And trash pallets.
Unfortunately this house is going to require a level of crazy that I never saw myself embarking on -- but is that how expertise is built? You start out making crap out of trash and then you build a teensy beach house with prayers and and then -- WHAM! suddenly you're renovating a warehouse? (please say yes, that there is some reason behind all this, because otherwise I am just exploring a hobby that never yields any financial returns.)
Anyway Happy November and I hope it's not raining where you are :) We've had a solid month of rain, starting with the flooding across the state of SC at the beginning of October, and there's been no end in sight!
