Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Indulge ~ {Yield (to); give satisfaction to}

One of my indulgences is refurbishing .  This abandoned, dilapidated house is in my neighbourhood. I drive by it frequently and it makes me itch.  It makes me itch to make it over.  This house needs a serious overhaul and I would love to get my hands on it.

Doesn’t it remind your of the Dynasty TV series?  If the walls could talk it might tell us a story of a rich and powerful family that might have lived there once.

Overhauling

” Perfection is attained by slow degrees, it requires the hand of time.”-Voltaire

Like some of you might know, a renovation can either make or break you.  So far, I am standing.  Or should I say WE are.

Everyday is an adventure.  I have always been a DIY girl.  I just adore drills, and power tools.  So chopping and changing comes naturally.  I am so fanatic about finishing and perfection, it can sometimes drive me mad.  Many times I find myself laying awake at 03h00 in the morning mulling about what colour I should paint the wall in the bedroom or how I can fix the squeaking door in the kitchen!

We have been overhauling on a zero budget for the last few weeks. This drives me to always think out of the box.  So with little (or sometimes no) money, here is a summary in pics of what we have been up to the past 9 weeks:

That makes me smile.  Alas! We are not done yet.  I think it will always be a work in progress.  The brain of a creative is never satisfied, ask me!
