Unlevel Walls and Floors

We knew when we bought this house that the floors were unlevel. Apparently on this side of town the soil has lime in it and it has caused a large amount of shifting and settling. Our inspector was also a engineer and felt the house was fine and that it was done settling so we felt we were good to go. However when it comes to doing things that should be easy it is much harder when the house is no longer level. We found this out when we did the kitchen backsplash. If you look real close my tiles are so off haha! Gotta love white grout as it totally disguses all of the imperfections there. Now we are getting to enjoy the issue of settling as we are laying our hardwoods. The kitchen is so close to being done that I'll share pics soon.

Oh Spray Paint How I Love Thee...

I can remember as far back at the age of 14 spray painting furniture for my bedroom and I'm still spray painting things many years later. Never quite as much as I have since moving in the new house. Changing of colors has turned into a appalling amount of cans of spray paint on our back deck. I'm sure the neighbors think I am absolute nuts! But I do love me some spray paint!
