So - only about three days into my house... I have every room wallpapered except the attic & living room. Just built a bookcase out of the stair treads - will do the second one another day! Haven't started on the outside, but I'm thinking about the egg carton stone thing. Bricks would be too tedious for me, although I did use 1/2" 'tiles' of metallic hued paint chips for the ceiling in the kitchen!
I've also been using emery boards for sanding - I can't remember if that was in the 100+ pages I read. I've been using the short ones because that's what I have. Some of the tab holes are too small for the emery board, but overall it's made lots of things much easier.
My painting skills leave much to be desired so I'm working with decoupage for as much as I can!
Just what I needed - another crafting addiction!
