I guess one might also consider that this post is a "Work in Progress!!"
I have been juggling projects. Thirty-some years ago, I actually learned how to juggle! But, this is a different sort of juggling... and another blog post!
I have been involved in some home improvement projects:
Most notably, we finally started, and almost finished our fireplace!!
We taped out our first idea on the wall last December:
We revised our plan. We rethought it. We reimagined it.
I wanted to have a wood-grain fireplace. The mister liked that idea, but wanted a painted area above. We considered different ways to use trim to "marry" a painted top and a wood lower section that stood out by 3/4". Then, after looking at wood flooring, tile flooring and rough-sawn lumber...we found "blue stain pine siding." OMG! This was perfect. The color was just what we liked. The variation was sweet. The price was right, and it serves as a reminder of our time in Colorado!
