Back to work

After a bit of an absence, we finally got back to fixing up the house a bit this weekend…

Master bedroom: The ceiling fan has, at long last, been installed (and looks great, even if the installation wasn’t nearly as easy as the directions made them out to be… note to Hampton Bay: make the mounting bracket screws accessible to those of us who aren’t Plasticman). Still need to install crown molding.

Laundry room: The new shelves have finally been hung, and the window valence is up as well. Still need to put up a wall border and install some new baseboard.

On a related note, we spent a few hours on Saturday at the 2002 Home Show put on buy the Dallas chapter of the NARI . Turned out to be time well spent, too, as we managed to snag some good leads on contractors for some work we’re planning to have done in the next couple of months (windows, patio, carpet… you know, the easy stuff :-)
