|What do you think? This one...?|
So, sorry old house, but once I get all the shingles I need from you, it's off to a charity for you! :-( It makes me feel bad, but over the last few weeks, I haven't felt inspired to work on the 1970s house. What keeps coming up for me is the phrase, "You can't make a purse from a sow's ear." Meaning, if I put a lot of work into it, it still won't look that great anyway--it's never going to amount to anything.
I've never liked old-style particle board, not since I bought a six-foot by 4 foot shelf kit that was made from it. It was pretty funny, really! It was for my first apartment after completing school. I didn't realize how heavy particle board was until I had to try to get the box of six-foot pieces into my second-floor apartment. I had to move the box end-over end up the stairs, because I could not lift it! And once the kit was finished, if the shelf had fallen on someone, that definitely would have been the end for them--yikes!
Of course, the house is not built to scale either! The doors and windows would always be too big, and I could never buy things to fit them....
