It's a new year. A new year for renovations and a new year for videos about renovations. We are working on the latest installment and will have that posted soon. But in the meantime, lets talk about resolutions.
Did you make any resolutions? Like lose weight, call your mom more or start a band? Enough about me.
Maybe you made a resolution to pick up tools more or finally start that bathroom renovation that you have been putting off. Well, believe me - its easier than you think. First off, picking up a tool is a cinch. A saw? Easy. A screwdriver? Easy. A jackhammer? Well, not so easy but you will feel uber strong after that!! And once you get a hang of your tools, you'll start using them and before you know it, your bathroom will be demolished.
That is what happened to us! We were procrastinating about the bathroom renovation for so long and one weekend we just decided to wield a hammer and demo the whole thing. It's quite cathartic, I recommend it.
That's what the new year is all about. Getting rid things that are annoying and/or holding you back. And a dirty, gross, moldy, falling apart bathroom was definitely annoying! It felt good to rip it apart and throw it out. Cleansing. Like a good Wild Rose detox.
So, go to it! Rip up your old laminate floor and replace it with hard wood, paint your living room, build a bench to store all your sewing supplies, build a porch from scratch, repair the foundation in the corner of your house where it has been rotting since 1979 and build a new shelving/storage system for all your CD's and massive speaker system.
Oh, and call your mom more.
