Spoiled by my parents
In case anyone was wondering: we are still renovating. We've had color consultants come over to advise us over the colors we'll use to paint all our white walls. So 2008 has a lot of outstanding painting work still. But in the mean time my parents are frequently working in our house. With a lot of patience and accuracy, my dad is restoring our old staircase and getting it ready for some colorpaint.
