Before and After

Can anyone tell that I'm not getting a lot of work done today?  I'll probably go mute for a month after this.

Don't get your hopes up.

Remember I was blathering at great length about stripping the wallpaper behind the washer and dryer, building new doors, etc., and that I was going to put pictures up Real Soon Now?

Next I should get pictures of the guest room.  I "finished" it months ago...
