    I think it would be cool to see some home improvement projects. "Before and after" pictures would be ideal. It's always interesting and sometimes inspiring to see what others have done to their home. I'm in the process of having my floors re-done. I'm also having some landscaping work done in my back yard. Once those projects are complete I will post some pictures.

    I shared this in a different thread in the Misc. section. But I'm so happy with it I think I'll post it twice. :) Top is the "before" and bottom is the "after". My QA specialist in the photo seems to approve.

    Now I'm thinking about painting the walls. I think a navy blue would match well?

    I don't think navy blue walls match anything - but that's just me.

    I replaced my tile counter tops with granite and had them install an under-mount sink and new faucet. I'm really liking how it turned out!

    Most recent and probably last project for a while. Removed some of the pavers, added more rock, and replaced the grass with turf in the back yard. Very happy with how it turned out!

    Almost have the kids’ new playset done in the backyard. Just have to wait for treated wood to dry out before staining/sealing. Then we’ll put some sand in the box below. Really pleased with the results of our spring break project.

    Not a kit, by the way. Found some basic plans online and then adapted them to our needs. Bought most hardware and all lumber locally. Took about 3 days total.

    I cedar paneled my closet with T&G paneling. A huge improvement over the old unfinished 2X4 look we've had since we purchased the house. Now to add a closet door...

    Cleaned up this fire hazard under my TV. It’s all tidy now :)

    New mixer taps for the shower/bath. My family used to treat the old ones like an on/off switch, hopefully the new ones should save energy and water.
