I'm no expert but I can't afford the experts. I let my home go downhill for 17 years and I'm redoing everything. I'm one year into the project. I'd be done by now if I weren't working on furnishings and decor at the same time.

I'll start posting what I have done up to this point but I have a lot further to go and quite frankly, your advice will be a treasure!

Almost a month, but better late then never. Welcome to HR. I’m sure you’ll find this site interesting. It’s a great place to show off your stuff, get ideas, and ask questions. I like your blog – keep up the good work.

Thank you PaBull! It is a bit of work to be sure. The thing is, I have found the energy and inspiration to do more in a month than I used to do in an entire year. Some of that inspiration has been coming from people just like you!

I am also not in a situation to afford the experts. Also I like working on renovation projects like this. I have single handedly renovated the whole house and I am so proud of it. Thank you so much for sharing the projects.
