All kinds of things arrived at This D*mn House yesterday.
The ceiling tile came in two flat boxes, one of which is quite heavy. The egg and dart molding (just for the kitchen) arrived in a third extra-long box. The heaviest of the three is currently propped up on the fireplace in the livingroom. The other two are conspicuously stowed in the dining room. That’s just until I can find a spot for them in the family room.
I haven’t ventured to open them up yet. I may do that tonight or I might just wait until tomorrow. Tonight is grocery night so I may not have time.
Then, the latest issue of This Old House came in the mail. I was exhausted last night but I flipped through a few pages, My eye gravitated to a letter from a reader who suggested that DIYers offer up their “longest-standing incomplete DIY project.” Well, the editor took him up on it!
Go here and share photos and descriptions of the DIY project that you just can’t ever seem to finish. The winning entry will be featured in a future issue of the magazine.
I think I only have two “long-term unfinished” projects at the moment. The oldest is trimming out the closet in the family room downstairs that Lawrence and I built in January 2008. Second in line is dismantling the old daybed and assembling the new one that I bought just over a year ago. (Of course, I didn’t do anything in the meantime like putting up a fence and bricking the porch and walkway …)
What’s your longest-running house to-do that is as yet undone?
