One day I came home from work and just felt like ugh, I need to do something about this house. I always felt cramped and frustrated walking through the door seeing this. Of course I always watched home and garden and home improvement shows so I thought I was up for the challenge. I in fact was up for the challenge with in mind of the issues that I could potentially run into after knocking down walls. So I set out to my local hardware store and took on this project as a stress reliever.
During my project I quickly figured out that the builders of my home didn't take much time to do things right. To my dismay there wasn't a single spot in my house with correct measurements. I began to knock down walls and uncovered more tragic finds such as outlets not being properly wired. These were outlets that my kids and I used regularly but I said I was up for the task. Now to put things back together was the nail that kept me going. I wanted to see the finished product.
Still on my journey to the finish line I started to piece things back together so that I could get an idea of what the finished product would look like. I rebuilt the wall to divide the sitting area from the dining room and kitchen. I decided that I wanted crown moulding so I put that up(that's another story). I laid down new flooring, refinished the cabinets bought new furniture, painted, refurbished old furniture and all of this was done for the sake of relieving stress.
