Do you ever watch home renovation or design shows on television? Sometimes when I find that I have some spare time on my hands, usually on Saturdays, I take some time to watch some of my favorite design or home reno shows.
I find TV shows like Flipping out, Marriage Under Construction, Homes Inspection and any DIY shows interesting.
My husband and I are home renovators. Well … stalled home renovators. We currently have an unfinished living room dining room ceiling and need to finish the wall (currently open and covered by plastic!) that runs between the basement stairs and the dining room. Its been that way for oh .. about … four or more years.
I did say we were stalled in our home renovations didn’t I?
The only good thing about taking our time renovating is that I’ve had tons of time to come up with renovating and design ideas and plenty of time to see what ideas have stuck through the years. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to put in the all glass brick wall between the basement stairs and dining room anymore … you see what a few years to think about things can do?
I’m hoping we’ll put on our renovating hats again in a few months .. I really want to finish our living room dining room. All we really have to do to finish the reno job is put up the tin ceiling, maybe add in monte carlo fans in the living room for cooling, put up molding and baseboards and then work on some new furnishings – possibly.
Are any of you stalled DIY’ers? If so … what did you do to get yourself motivated again?
