Both projects look really great. Maybe you have a new line of work in your future.


I hope this won't be my new line of work.....

Thanks for all the good words.

I finished my master bath today. I still have a little touch up on the paint to do, but other than that I am done. ..... I got the room all painted and then saw this dent in the wall. I don't know how I missed it, I must have been in there 3 or 4 times skimming the walls and fixing holes and dings. Wouldn't you know it, after I paint I see another one. I could not leave it there, every time I came in the room I would probably stare at it...lol. Any way, here is the almost finished product, maybe I can get my wife to do the final clean and dust before we break it in? The floor still needs to be buffed too.:smilewink:

Same here, but sometimes wish I could afford hiring done. But then I don't want strangers in my house, and I know how it's done when I do it. Doesn't always mean I do it "right", but it always works for me! lol
Nice job Todd!

I actually have a good friend who has been in the home improvement game for 30 years and has a great attention to detail and does great work. I'm just too cheap to pay him to do the job....:blush2:

There's a certain amount of satisfaction doing it yourself and having it turn out good.

This is true... It doesn't go without reward.
