Before and After

This was our very first home improvement project! Luckily it didn't turn out like Tim the Tool Man Taylors projects :)

Our house was build in the fifties and even though it has been updated multiple times between then, there are still a few areas calling for a bit of TLC. Since it has been close to hundred degree weather for the last few days this project became a must!

This is the before shot of the light figure in our bedroom:

After two hours of hard work by my wonderful husband (the second hour in the dark with a flashlight) this is the after picture:

It's so hot that I didn't even turn off the fan to take the picture! It made a HUGE difference in the temperature of our room last night and looks a heck of a lot better. Now I just need some paint on those walls behind it :)

This is a picture of Andy drinking the first beer from his first batch of home brew beer. So far so good! He still has two cases left to drink but is already planning his next batch!


  1. we're available this weekend. what about you??? love the fan and the beer :)

  2. We are!! I will call you tomorrow before 3 (when I go to work) and we will set out some plans!
