Todays prompt from Artsyville is: quick fixes to make any room in your home look better.... Quick, easy design changes that you could make to each room for an instant lift. Well, in my house, nothing is going to be a quick fix, but here are a few things that have been done, need to be done, will be done:
~ The upstairs bath needs a lot of help. There is a gaping hole in the ceiling where water was pouring in at every rain and snow melt, paint is peeling on the walls as a result of repeated rains, the floor is old and horrid. We recently purchased a new cushy and loopy bathmat and it has greatly elevated the room to pleasant to be in.
~ The roof was a big mess. There were multiple spaces where water rolled into the house. There were spaces, small, but spaces none the less that little animals and birds decided to take the opportunity to freeload and bring relatives for a vacae. It was not a cheap fix but quick in that it was a total tear off and rebuild in one day! Yes, one day start to finish.... gracias vatos!
~ The downstairs kitchen has had boxes off to the side that contained random stuff that needed to be put somewhere or pitched. Another check goes in the done column.
~ The living and dining room both are just a piled up mess. The contents are saved items from the flood and bunches of Pops' stuff that just needs permanent resting places.
~ The dining room, a.k.a. temporary craft room has become more organized and some things put in their permanent homes, but a long way to go....
~ We've been wanting to change out some artwork in den and finally replaced a piece with one that Pops had in his room :)
~ Pile of dye buckets on back porch finally put away in the proper place... till next dye run :)
~ One kitchen cupboard set of doors refused to close properly. New latch purchased and installed. Thank you dear....
