    Congratulations, Claire! On a HARD job well done. I like the bouquet of dried reeds on the wall; it’s more homey than pictures or shelves.

    “…after two nights of rigorous testing, I can also state categorically: IT WORKS!”
    Nothing worse that a bedroom that doesn’t work! I really like the Bentwood. Good job Claire.

    God, that’s great. I can’t look at those old YOW pics without praising your courage and/or insanity. Congratulations! Many pleasant years of residency.

    Ignorance, Joel. You’re praising my blind, willful ignorance. Or greed. All I could see when I bought the place was a $10k house on a gorgeous piece of land. We’ll forever have to wonder whether I’d have bought the place had I had Clue One about what I was getting into.

    But thank you, All. Getting the bedroom finished felt like an eternity of hard work. I’m glad it was worthwhile.

    Hahahahah, jordanms. Let us not forget finishing the laundry room, repairing seams and corners that popped when we jacked the house, building a deck and porch, exterior finishing, flooring, skirting, re-doing the living room ceiling, baseboards everywhere, creating a “real” pantry …

    But later. All later. For now, guess I’ll have to stick with poly-ticks. And maybe books and art and …
