  1. I'm not planning to spend any money on remodeling ( or very little) but I'm planning on working on a few things here int he next few weeks with what I already have on hand, and post about it :)

  2. I didn't even know Axe made things for girls. No house or apartment for me, so I don't worry about re-decorating. I'll do that when I get a place of my own. The most I'll be spending in this new place is for curtains...

  3. I am fixing to (yes I am Southern)work on our sun porch. This will involve lots of elbow grease and some new furniture! The walls and woodwork need sanding and painting. There are 7 windows, 2 french doors, baseboards and crown molding. Wooo- got my work cut out for me! Angela

  4. Honey, I have plans to fix up this house all the time! You know its what I love to complain about most. I'm hoping we get a new fence but I may be a bit to cheap for that one.

  5. Right now we are focusing on the outdoor space. Increasing the size of the veggies garden. I have a "home maintenance" budget this comes out of :)

  6. Today, I was trying to get the little ac in right. It was moved from another window where it worked perfectly. ??? Then, I discovered the filter cannot be removed while the ac is in the window where it is now. Plus, today I started my planting if you can believe that I am so late. Four vinegar jug bottoms are painted and are being pressed into service for herbs. I used paint that I have had for awhile. My stevia plant will be the first thing to go into a pot.

  7. Your blog is on my blog roll.

  8. My brother's come every summer and fix things around my house. This year's list includes fixing the doors - front and back - so they will close/lock and painting one side of my house (last year they painted the front). In just 4 years, the whole outside will get painted! There's a whole list of things they do for me every year, like cleaning out the gutters, and trimming all the trees/bushes. I'm so lucky to have them!

  9. There are a lot of things around my house that need to be fixed, but I have to wait on my ex-husband to get them done, so I wait and wait and wait...

    There are a few things I can do myself. One of those projects is my four exterior doors need to be re-painted. They were stained dark before, and I painted them a nautical blue in 2003. It's definitely time to paint them again! Especially the two that are exposed to the weather. The other two are quite protected inside a breezeway, so I will evaluate those two when I determine how much paint is left after the first two.

    I have to paint when the weather will be dry and warm for several days, so that means it will most likely wait until mid August or even into September.

  10. BTW--I won't need to spend any money on paint. I still have about 3/4 of a can left from the original painting.

  11. No plans for remodeling. Just cleaning and decluttering for us.

  12. Diane, may I borrow your brothers?

    OK, another project I NEED to work on this summer, is to continue cleaning stuff OUT of my garage. It's an extremely over-sized double car garage, but there isn't even room to squeeze in a bicycle. :O Stuff's gotta go!

  13. I started using the power sander on the walls and woodwork today. Ugh- all that dust- I have a headache. Love your living room choices but i am with you that the chair and rug both in circles might be too much of a good thing. : ) Angela

  14. I think maybe I will replace some blinds in our apartment. Ours are somewhat dingy and our management only replaces blinds when people move out.
