I looked at my current website, and I thought "Man, this is a load of crap. I'm going to make it better." The result? I think it's still a load of crap, but oh well.
At first I tried making my own theme, but I gave up after I realized I could make everything move to where I wanted, but I just don't have an artistic eye. So, I grabbed a theme from Google Pages, and modified it a bit. (By the way, I took that picture in the header at Deception Pass, WA.)
Also, I think there's going to be some browser compatibility issues (tested it with Firefox 2.0 RC2 on Mac, don't have IE to test). There's also an issue with the fonts being too large and then having the menu wrap around (happens on Safari 2.0, not on Firefox).  I think I've fixed the problem of menu wrapping... tell me if it still persists [/edit] I'm thinking about implementing a flexible width page, although this doesn't work correctly in IE if I've been informed correctly.
So, although I put time and effort into my website, I still don't think it looks very good.
