(Wondering where the litter box went? It's in a secret compartment under the sink--that stroke of genius came from my friend, the homeowner!)
Quite a transformation! I was also glad I finally convinced someone to paint a room in their house navy blue. The process of actually buying the materials (not just specifying, which is what I often do at Ye Olde Dayjobbe) felt great--really hands-on. And I found a great contractor who shared a lot of the same eco-friendly ideals as me.
Okay, who's next!?
