It's not a mess; it's art!
Compared to the isolated areas of completed flooring, sparkling new paint, and just-put-back-together order, the messy parts of the renovation seem even more regrettable. This may be our most challenging phase, so we just look around and say kindly that the place definitely has potential.
I surveyed some projects still in progress, looking for spots for beauty. Finding visual treats wasn't difficult. In fact, some items look downright artistic when viewed from the proper angle. With apologies to Mondrian, Picasso, Pollock, and a host of other artists, we'll call this collection "Library Motifs":
And if we were exhibiting this pose of an office window removed from the hallway, we'd have to title it "Window to Nowhere".
