Finding Inspiration in Other People's Restoration Efforts

I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with this paint stripping and remodel project Jeff and I are about to take on. I've spent several hours this morning finding inspiration from other people's blogs where they show their paint stripping efforts. Specifically I've checked out these blogs/photo galleries:

1912 Bungalow
Ayers' Bungalow photos
Fixin' Up the Bungalow

I'm trying to psyche myself into looking forward to taking on this challenge. We paid less for this house partly because the woodwork was painted and it was in pretty original condition. Hopefully with a couple year's effort, we'll get a house we love and is more valuable than our financial investment. (Though it's always a struggle for us to not over-remodel the last house we owned.)
