The 48 Hours of Renovation Mania Weekend

Renovation Mania Weekend (named it myself) kicked-off Friday after work and ended Sunday afternoon. I’m not even sure where to start, so expect several posts about this weekend.

On my fifth trip to Home Depot (Saturday evening), I decided to re-write the lyrics of the popular Christmas carol 12 Days of Christmas, while waiting for Home Depot’s plumber guy to help us out. Even though there were only 48 hours in Renovation Mania Weekend, it certainly felt like 12 days, so I came up with 12 renovation-realities that happened this weekend. (Sing along to the Christmas tune.)
