Re: Wall Repairs - Upstairs Hallway

That actually encourages me to get going on my house. I have light cracks that need that bit of cosmetic work,and a few places it sponges so I know the plaster let go... I guess I need to roll up my sleeves and just do it..... But I was afraid of it.... Your post inspires! You also have a very sweet...

Re: what did you get done on your house today?

After living with the torn apart bathroom for almost 6 years in the hopes I could just get it repaired right, I finally threw the towel in, fixed the wall a bit and painted it and refinished the sink cabinet and the one hanging up on the wall.

Re: Exterior Color Palettes?

I did most of my own colors. The bland palette I bought the house with was kicked up by keeping the 3 main colors but kicking in compliment colors.
