My husband and I are not what most people call handy. I am still impressed they passed me in woodshop. I varnished my project to a table and had to use a crowbar to get it off. That is the level of competency I am working with.
But we decided to purchase a Victorian home that is over a hundred years old and in need of a lot of DIY projects. I mean everything from painting and repointing the stone basement to electrical work and a kitchen that needs to be demolished ASAP (okay, the last one I won’t be installing the new kitchen, but I will enjoy tearing out every beadboard inch of the old one.)
Keep an eye out for the different project posts, but as a quick reference, here are some pictures of the BEFORE. These are the images that were taken by the relator selling the house. I ended up tackling a lot of projects without taking my own BEFORE images. And in case you can’t see. All the white in the kitchen? That is all beadboard!
