Hallelujah! It’s hardwood floor time.

Home Improvement No Comment

Getting married really put a damper on our home-improving. Mostly because of the time. Oh yeah, and the money. We were definitely strapped for cash. But after the dust settled (and we were officially Mr. & Mrs.), we had enough cash left over for a project we had been really, really, really wanting to do …. […]

Home Improvement Musings

Home Improvement No Comment

Happy post-Labor Day! In honor of a big DIY/home-improvement-sale day (honoring economic contributions of workers roughly translates into sales at big-box home stores, right?), here are some random musings … One of the best parts about being a homeowner is the endless possibilities! We closed on our house a little over a year ago, and […]

WTH is growing in our house? (Part 2)

Home Improvement No Comment

To continue the first part of the harrowing saga of the mold-like substance in our 3rd floor bedroom … What are you?   After my mania-like cleaning escapade late at night, I went to bed (after showering, in case this was, in fact, mold), vowing to return to the project the next day. But, alas, it was […]

WTH is growing in our house? (Part 1)

Home Improvement No Comment

Note: Holy moly! Can’t believe it’s been 8 months since I posted any update of home improvement stuff! I’d like to say that I’ll be better about posting regularly, but… I can’t make that promise. Still, I’ll try to churn out some new updates at least once per quarter. =) So if you missed the […]

Mirrored Windows: The Rematch

DIY Projects, Home Improvement, Painting 1 Comment

Previously I wrote about my attempt to turn a salvaged window into a mirrored work of art, which failed miserably. Mostly because of my laziness. This is neither attractive nor functional. But I was determined to give the Krylon Looking Glass spray paint another shot. Mostly because I like the idea of instantly transforming a piece of […]

Decor: Art & Photos

Decor & Furnishings, Home Improvement No Comment

So you’ll have to wait until the next post to find out what else I used that mirror-paint on (See Mirrored Windows post). For now I’m going to share the various “art” that I’ve set up in the house so far. I use the term “art” loosely because, well… it’s mostly photographs. And the one […]

Mirrored Windows

DIY Projects No Comment

So I had been obsessed with finding a so-called “architectural salvage” store since I learned of their existence from — of course — HGTV. The idea that there could be a warehouse full of treasures that you could add to your house? So cool! Of course, in my mind, they were also dirt-cheap treasures. Did […]

Furnishings: The Living Room Edition

Decor & Furnishings, Home Improvement No Comment

So even though I haven’t been posting, I have been doing a few things here and there around the house. Mostly furnishing it. As previously said, we moved here from a 650sqft condo. One bedroom, one bath. Now we’re in a 2400sqft 4 bedroom house, with three stories and an honest-to-goodness dining room. Although I […]

My Apologies

Life & Everything Else No Comment

So I’ve been derelict in maintaining this blog. I can come up with a lot of excuses, but the biggest one is that I just haven’t been doing much in the way of home-improvement type stuff. Why? Well, in case I neglected to mention it in my original post, the reason I moved to Bethlehem […]

New Living Room Floor!

Home Improvement, Rennovations No Comment

Ok, so this might be cheating a little bit, because a blog titled “How Hard Could It Be?” somewhat implies that it might be Do-It-Yourself projects. That is a reasonable assumption. And for the most part, I plan on DIY projects. But I am proud to say that I’m not so arrogant that I think […]

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting this blog!

Everything you'll find here is the true story of two inexperienced homeowners who never stop asking the question ... "how hard could it be?"

There are many old photos with broken links - we're sorry about that, and are trying to get everything looking good again!
