    On Memorial Day weekend, I started what I thought was going to be a simple laundry room refurbishing. A little paint, some new cabinets, baseboards, new window, new floor and new appliances and wham-o a new laundry room.

    15 trips to Lowes, Home Depot, Orchard Supply
    Countless hours painting, sanding, cleaning, touching up
    1 broken drain (the pipe that goes into the concrete thankyouverymuch)
    1 gigantic hole in the wall -- anyone know how to patch authentic beadboard?
    and 3 weeks later . . .

    I'm doin' laundry again /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    p.s. to Fumes -- concrete stain rocks! My floor came out awesome /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Re: Why do my projects always create more projects?

    You know, it drives my wife nuts, but when we have a project like that I go to Lowe's and buy about 3 times as much materials as I need and a bunch of miscellaneous crap so that I only have to make 2 trips, one to pick up and another to return the unused items. I always get drywall patches for instance, it seems like I put a hole in the wall on every project, either accidentally with a hammer or with a frustated fist. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I would also like to see some pics of the concrete stain though, been thinking about doing that too.
