According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), May is National Home Improvement Month. This will be my first year celebrating because… well, I’ve never had to care before. An old joke by the late Mitch Hedberg suddenly comes to mind:

I went to the Home Depot, which was unnecessary. I need to go to the Apartment Depot, which is just a big warehouse with a whole lot of people standing around saying, “We don’t have to fix sh**.”

As most homeowners already know (and I am quickly learning), for those that actually renovate, there’s no such thing as just one month of home improvement. It lasts until you sign the dotted line that makes it someone else’s home.

Thinking back on the few things I’ve managed to complete in these last couple of months, I’ve decided to improve on my home improvement. Waiting until New Years is way too long to start my new resolution:  I need to take better “before” photos.

Strike that. I need to actually take more “before” photos. I think that will help amp up the “wow” factor of my future projects and keep me more motivated to start on the next one. It sounds like a good improvement plan to start during NHIM to me.

I am thankful that there are so many of us out there who spend our days thinking so much about home improvement that they dedicate an entire month to it. It’s reassuring to know I have plenty of opportunities to reach out for design advice. So, good luck on all of your projects, and Happy National Home Improvement Month to you all!
