99.9% done

This is the point that I usually quit my home improvement projects, I never go on and finish all those little details that make a job look nice, neat, and complete.  By this time, I'm tired of this job, and I'm either ready to move on to the next, or I don't want to look at another saw, hammer, or can of paint for the rest of my life. 

I'm hoping I'll surprise me this time.  I think I would have really finished all the little things up already, but my trusty little compressor for my nail gun died.  It waited until the last weekend of this project, for that I am grateful, but that also means I now have a handy excuse for not finishing the trim around the entryway, or putting down the quarter-round molding around baseboard. 

Rather than wait till everything is completely done (read - never) to post pics of project, I thought I'd go ahead and post 'em. 

So here they are, just in case you were anxiously awaiting.

What was I thinking...

What was I thinking?

It wasn't that bad, before I mean...

Why did we start this??

George is not impressed with all of our hard work -
Neither is Skip.

Dave wonders why he married this woman, bought this house, or started this project....

I understand his questions, but I have no answers.

I think we'll both be a little relieved to go back to "work", after this long weekend.

We need the rest.
