Josh's Pebbles & Echoes in a Basket Block

This is Josh, it's Tuesday, so that means it's time for my turn at this week's block: Pebbles and Echoes in our basket block series.

And here's how it came out:

How are you doing with these basket blocks? I know I really enjoy this set and can't wait to see it all come together. I'd love to hear your experience with the basket blocks so please comment below!

On another note, we are day 2 on our carpet removal and floor installation project upstairs. We're ripping out the monstrosity of a 1970s red carpet in the living room, dining area, and hallway. As you can see below, the carpet and foam layer are history, but we still have a lot of work to do.

You can see I'm a lot happier than I was during our last home improvement project. After a disastrous experience with a contractor who truly put the "con" in contractor, it's nice to be 100% in control of a project. Stuff like this isn't any fun, especially what we're doing today with scraping up the old vinyl flooring that's coated with a millimeter of scum and grease, but the finished result will be well worth it.

See you next week!
