I went to Lowe's on Saturday morning to get some ideas for DIY projects I'm sorta kinda considering and ended up abandoning my cart (full of items) in the middle of an aisle and walking out. It reminded me of this article, which makes me laugh even just thinking about it...
There's a list a mile long of things I'd like to do to our house, but since we're thinking about moving, it's difficult to know what to take on and what to let go. But here's something we have to do, since first impressions are so key in the real estate market: fix our entryway.
What is that thing, you ask? Oh, the 1960s half-wall entryway -- so classy. Ours is made even classier by having a cut-out in the center with a large metal pan in it. Originally, it housed a very dusty collection of fake plants. I threw those out the minute we moved in and filled it with glass beads instead.
Clearly, this was not a long-term fix.

And speaking of home improvement projects, we're also in the process of having our bathrooms redone. I'll be doing a big post about that soon, too -- expect to be truly terrified by the "before" pictures (quick preview: there used to be carpet. EWWWWW!).
Any master DIYers out there tackle something amazing this Memorial Day weekend? I'd love to marvel over your handiwork and bemoan my lack of DIY talent! Share links to any projects you've posted about in the comments below...
