September Theme Post: Boots
The September one-day theme on Sophistique Noir is boots. I love boots, and if this were a fashion blog, my post would practically write itself. But this is GIY! How does footwear relate to a GIY project? Let me show you...
First, I'll introduce you to my first pair of New Rocks, purchased in 2001. Behold the bat-bedecked splendor!
Second, meet my basement. When I purchased my house, it came complete with a partially "finished" basement -- cheap brown paneling, gold shag carpet, and oddly placed, poorly constructed homemade walls.
Last spring, the 70's called and wanted their basement back. I seized the opportunity to try my hand (or foot) at demolition and quickly found that tearing stuff down was very therapeutic. I had no idea how much fun it would be to put my New Rock-clad foot through a wall. :-)
The wall before...
... and after the repeated application of New Rocks.
