Brick Love, Part I

I see posts on design blogs all the time, written by people complaining about their brick wall “eyesores”. They’re seeking advice on how to remove/cover/disguise their brick. Personally, I think they’re nuts and should just replace those brick walls with padded … Continue reading

The Best Job EVER.

All in all, it’s just another brick in the wall. And another. And another. And… Yeah. Lots more of that. I wrote Brick Love, Part I so long ago that you probably don’t even care about Brick Love, Part II, but could … Continue reading

My house has mold…

…ing! Oh, yeah! Molding, baby! Installed. By me. Two months of talking about it and, BAM, it’s done. Just like that. In the blink of an eye. (Not a normal person’s eye blink. Maybe a coma patient’s…) How many pictures of molding can you … Continue reading

Gettin’ Jiggy Wit it.

A Tutorial. Sort of. No, not really.

You know I’m not big on tutorials. I normally couldn’t care less about teaching you anything. (It’s all about me…) But, because it’s the season of giving, I’ve decided to give you the gift of the DIY shower curtain! Yeah, I did … Continue reading
