Giveaway Reminder & Baseboard Project Preview

Hey!  Don't forget to enter to win a copy of
More Than Just A Pretty Face, by Karen Morerod!
Last day to enter is November 30 and the winner will be chosen December 1.

Even if you don't want the book for yourself
(although I can't imagine why you wouldn't),
it would make a very fine gift.
I can probably get my friend, the author,
to autograph it for you, too!

The next project to be tackled is the baseboard.  My Dad, the floating carport genius, will be heading up this one, too.  The thing that makes this tricky are the curved corners the previous owner installed when they drywalled over the support beams.  An obvious solution might be to enclose those rounded, bumped out areas with decorative casing giving it a real old fashioned look, like this doorway:

I really like the look of casing, however the budget doesn't allow for that at this time.
(It'll be on the list for future updates, though.)

Here is a quick peek at the rounded areas.  Six of them in all.  That's twelve rounded corners.  Twelve.  No small task.  Dad is researching as we speak, and I know it'll look great when we're done!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to enter to win today!  See you again soon.
