False start (a paint & hardwood interlude)|
Jul 25, 2011, 3:50p - Building Stuff
My visual deprivation got off to a false start. Instead of starting last weekend as planned, Becca and I decided to redo our dining room. We pulled up the carpet, painted over the wood paneling, repainted the trim, installed new pre-finished Maple hardwood floors, and installed new baseboards. We got the wood and paint and everything else from Home Depot. All told it was 9 continuous days of labor, ending just a couple hours ago.

Before (another angle)
After (whole room)
Anyhow, if all goes well, visual deprivation begins tonight. The more I think about it, the more I feel like it's going to drive me stir-crazy and I won't finish my 1 week's worth. But I guess I'll just have to find out.

Looks awesome! Good luck on the visual experiment. Call me if you need something to do. Are you allowed to use the phone, maybe dial by voice commands?
