Before we moved in, we ripped out the nasty carpet, stripped the wallpaper, changed the light fixtures, changed the window treatments, added new baseboard, re-sprayed the ceiling, and had all of the wood flooring re-finished. All we have left to do is to replace the trim/casing & install the new doors.
I just bought Jack's little desk for $2.00. The old chair was a gift from a friend. I'm setting up his little desk area now, it's a work in progress.
