when my parent's moved out of the kingwood house after living in it for over 20 years, there was much to be sorted and cleaned out. every closet, cabinet, and corner had to be emptied, and even the buildup of clutter that defined our attic had to be reckoned with. since i was usually off galavanting around texas working on wedding plans and moving out of waco and into bcs, i just got to play with all the salvaged treasures. old frames, my mom & grandpa's long forgotten paintings and sketches, and even furniture are now valued and showcased in our tiny first home. art work aside, everything else we found & inherited was in major need of an update. which leads me to my second official before and after (as requested by my silly mom), the chinese screen:
people are starting to make fun of me at work for always having paint somewhere on my body.
haha; such is my life.
