The Pool Table Project
I needed something else to do, as you can tell I’m extremely bored and all. A couple weekends ago my cousin was at a garage sale and there was a pool table for free with all accessories. Obviously it isn’t a top of the line pool table, but it is a slate top. All pieces are now sitting in my basement awaiting my free time. Have I mentioned I don’t have much of that anymore? So over the winter I figured I would want something to do and this fit the bill. I now have a table to assemble, not to mention rehab. I forgot to mention that part didn’t I? The base and legs are very stable, but the decorative boards that go around it aren’t the best of shape, so I will probably buy new boards for that. Like I said, it’s going to be a winter project. I’m thinking black table with red felt…
What else is going on? Oh yeah, we had a heavy frost already. Luckily I was done with my other projects so my garage was once again my garage and not my workshop. I refuse to have to scrape my damn windows if I own a garage dammit. That only means that snow is not far behind, and all I can say is bring it on.

Project Number 2,482
Well, apparently I never learn. Here I busted my ass last year putting new flooring in all but two rooms of my house and redid the entire kitchen. Now almost a year later here I am again, embarking on more home improvement projects. This time I am changing out two old closets in my house for more modern looking, not to mention better functioning ones. The hall closet was a small one, with a tiny door at the bottom and a large door on top of that. There is no reason for that shit in 2010. My closet in my bedroom was also split, with low sliding doors at the bottom and then located inconveniently out of reach were two doors at the top. What was the point of that? Did people used to store linen up there or something? I totally gutted that and am reframing it and sheet rocking it so I can put a normal bi-fold door up. That way I will be able to look at my entire closet instead of just half of it. I was probably only dressing up in the clothes I could see, what a waste.
I still have other projects on my mind too, because I either like having no cash flow or don’t like sitting down very much. I think it’s about time some of those people with shows on HGTV show their asses up at my house and help me out.
