These two things, along with paint of the very blah same color walls were painted within the first few months. Now we are technically DIYers, I guess you have to label it. BUT not ALL people should be DIYers. Just because you see it on TV does not mean you can or need to do it to your house.
For example. In our entry way, the previous owner took it upon themselves to lay tile. Just tile would have been fine. But in between the tile, you know where the grout should be, they put laminate flooring. It look like criss cross. It was ugly but even worse than that it was doen wrong. Instead of laaying grout on the floor then on the tile then grouting, they super glued the tile to the floor. No, Im not kidding. They apparently thought super glue was the answer to all home improvement projects.
So yes, we are DIYers but we know our limits. Ill pay someone to make it look right. This brings me to the last two weeks. Do you remember my post about our sand trap? Here is why.
Along with the bathroom, the odd paint jobs, and the wonderful super glued tile, they built columns.
Such a lovely tile walkway
You can kind of see their creation
And up the tile, carpet, and whatever you want to call the entry way. Enter dust bowl.
One week later, its a new house. Here's the after.
The carpet goes all the way to the wall like it should
And their creation is gone
Feel free to oooh and ahh at any time.
Ive got to get the pictures back on the wall, its driving me nuts, even if the husband would like to keep it this way.
So whats next?
It all depends on $ becuase the rest costs too much (Gut kitchen, re-do floors in kitchen, re-do main bathroom) We will probly re-organize the closets next.
And no Im not kidding.
