It’s become something of the tradition since I moved back from LA for Thanksgiving to be the biggest home improvement weekend of my year. In my broke and workaholic state it was the longest “vacation” I’d take each year, so it was my (our) one chance at a big project.
In 2007, Scott, my bff Kim, and I stripped 3 layers of wallpaper and painted (all 4 coats of red) the master bedroom.
In 2009, I embarked on one of several reorganizations of the spare bedroom which is totally just storage room.
Last year, we made Scott an office and I cleaned out and repainted the hall closet (seriously the first time in at least 28 years this had happened).
This year, despite my best efforts (I was still planning on hitting up IKEA until about 8pm last night), the project is a little different. And probably A LOT less labor intensive.
Tomorrow morning we hit the road to Bucks County, PA to marry off Aimee…
… and her crazy—I mean amazing—Dave. (I really just wanted an excuse to post this photo.)
