For those that get annoyed by anything that takes time away from the game, here's a look at what I did with part of my summer. Razz

Truly a Dragon of all trades! Very Happy

We'll be moving soon - any chance that the Dragon makes house calls? Wink

All joking aside, that's a truly inspiring project that you completed, and it gives me hope that I, too, can someday make the inside of my house pretty again!

Cheers, Amethyst!

No idea. It works for me.

Try adding "/index.htm" to the end if the first part doesn't come up right.

Patience (and a reasonably patient spouse) can let even a novice home-improvement worker be successful. Careful thought and research are handy too.

I did as much research as I could before starting the Skimstone work. I didn't want to make a big mistake and have to rip out and replace my countertops (that was the back-up plan if the Skimstone turned out crappy-looking).

Next non-NWN project: Scraping and repainting kitchen cabinet doors while waiting for my grad school application to go through and then starting classes this fall...again.

I thought you were done with your degree - my bad? Either way, best of luck with grad school!
And will there be pictures/how-tos of this new project? (Inquiring minds want to know!) Shocked

Done with school? Twice, so far Razz

5 years undergrad (B.S. in Recreation Management)
2 years grad (elementary teaching certificate plus 6 credits shy of a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction)
Next...1 more year of grad school to get my certification to teach high school biology (plus probably some time to finish my master's degree)

More home improvement pictures/how-to...probably not for this project. Scrape and sand off old paint/finish, coat with primer, repaint, add drawer and cabinet handles...pretty simple stuff (if not time consuming).
