  14. Well, I didn't actually PLAN to remove the moldy caulk in the MBath shower today, but I mentioned it to my husband and he said sure, I'll take the shower doors off. So I removed the black caulk. (My hands hurt!) Then I noticed missing grout. And I read online that I should let it all dry out thoroughly, like for A WEEK! before regrouting and recaulking and I have never done grouting before. I have done three bathrooms worth of recaulking. So I guess this project is going to go into 2013!!! Maybe I'll call a professional...

  161. For 2013 I have planned to makeover my tween son's room, makeover the kitchen, and update my middle daughter's room. If that all gets done, I have furniture to paint, and will start on the master bedroom. msgfree1 at gmail dot com

  163. It is so amazing how much you and I think alike... our styles, colors, shopping habits, etc. Our projects are so similar too... laundry in the basement, library wall, kitchen renos, craft room, bedrooms, family room I could go on and ON! It's like we have DIY in our blood and in our pocketbook for sure;) I so enjoy following your blog because, well it's like having a friend who relates to me. Even the way you "talk" on your blog... you CRACK me up. Where I live I am truly blessed with amazing neighbors on either side, but there is an empty lot across the road and I'm telling you, I would love to be your neighbor! Come to think of it, we kind of are... I live in SW Michigan, just a mile north of South Bend, IN. Oh, the fun we would have in our home remodeling adventures! I have to tell you a little secret though. We have been living in what we call "perpetual remodel mode" like for evuh ;) It wasn't until I started reading your blog that I began to realize I didn't need to hide that reality anymore. For a long time I avoided (like the plague) inviting people (new friends) over for a visit. Now I just show off our completed projects and explain that the unfinished ones are "works in progress"... please excuse the dust:-D Thank you for the time you spend sharing your life and DIY experiences with the rest of us "perpetual remodelers" ;-) BTW if I win the True Value gift card you can be sure it will be put to good use! But even if I don't it has been great fun "chatting" with you. This is the first time I have ever commented on a blog or is that obvious;) Wishing you your best year ever!!!

  168. My husband's health failed as did my daughter's so we downsized to a small house we can share. A forty year old house in pristine vintage condition...UGH...nothing done over the years. But in our price range. Friends have helped us paint but there is still MUCH to make safe and pretty.
    Enjoy reading your blog as it gives me hope this will be a house we will be proud of some day.
    Hope

  179. Hmmmm. $100 to True Value. I would either take on a painting project in my son's room or replace a bunch of mismatching doorknobs or old painted over cabinet hinges or . . .

    This list could go on and on.

I need to create better storage in the basement, refinish kitchen cupboards, paint 2 walls in the kitchen, bath needs paint and new tub surround, I'd like tile. 3 lights need replacing, I need to finish some moulding form putting new linoleum, and too much more. Just a few things need doing around here. Thanks for a chance at a great giveaway.
