Here's my challenge, I live in a traditional 40 year old house. You know one of those 5 - 4- door with old brick, ugly tile, and rooms that need a lift. Rooms to be refreshed: Living Room - Office - Bath. My goal is to have all 3 projects completed by Labor Day for under a $3000 or $1000 per room. Can it be done?
Follow my progress on all three projects. I would love comments and ideas as the project progresses. Check out the problem areas:
Living Room - Brick needs updating. Should I resurface, reface, paint? What about new fireplace doors, gas logs, flat screen tv?
Office - can you believe I stare at this wall all day while working? What about a fake fireplace, wall mount fireplace, flat screen tv/computer monitor?
Bath - Wow this tile is ugly, the wall paper is ugly. Do I have to rip it all out? What about refinishing the tile, replacing the tile, covering the tile. I'll need to look into all options.
