I can't say that we're disappointed with our final DIY project of 2010 either:
We're really moving along compared to the before:
I will completely finish one project before moving on to the next!
I've gotten into the bad habit of saying I'll get back to paint a touch-up or hang up a picture... and then never doing it (*cough* unpainted baseboards *cough*). For me, 2011 will be my year of finishing! As for those orange chairs above, they're waiting for their final coats of black spray paint (a paint that I bought for the project over SIX MONTHS ago) so that they can round out the new patio area. More progress posts to come!
