I won't have anything to say about the weekend's projects until I've dumped the photos out of the camera to give you the "before" and the "intermediate after." So in the meantime, I bring you someone else's projects! I've been ranting on and on to my friends about a house blog that I am completely addicted to - the House in Progress. I found it by Googling "strip wallpaper" when we were dealing with the horrible stuff in the hallway/stairwell and I was convinced that there had to be a better way (there wasn't.) But as a consolation prize I found the house in progress. These folks are amazing, and I'm always a sucker for a talented writer.
Personally, I suggest that you start with How We Got Here, which while it isn't the first entry will get you started. I check in at least once a week. I'm an addict.
I want to be Jeannie when I grow up. I've got a rather bad case of hero-worship.
