    New Life for an Old Coffee Table.

    Hi Friends,  A couple weeks ago I started working on getting some stored “project” furniture out of our garage. Maybe there’s also a console and six dining chairs in there too but I’m not a hoarder- okay? I just happen to find some good furniture on fb marketplace sometimes and then I don’t have time […]

    Our Phase 1 Master Bathroom Renovation.

    Hi Friends, Today is exciting because I finally finished up the very first project in our new house and it’s a good one. I knew a full on bathroom remodel in our master bath was not going to be a priority for a few years at least but because it’s our day in and day […]

    Help, my bathroom is ugly!

    Hi Friends, You know how kitchens and bathrooms sell houses? Our house sat on the market for over 100 days before we put an offer in! We were the only ones lining up to buy our house. Why? Because the kitchen and bathrooms were Terrible. Yes, capital “T”! Because my husband is a plumber, we […]

    Our Master Bedroom

    Hi Guys! I’m super excited to share our master bedroom transformation with you today! This is one of my favorite spaces because it’s super cozy and different from the rest of our house, in a good way. Here’s what the space looked like before we moved in: The wall color was fine, but it had […]

  • Bathroom Redo.

    Bathroom Redo.

    Okay. So we have this really tiny bathroom off our entry hallway and from the moment I saw it, I knew we needed to give it a “little” facelift. Usually I’m pretty good at gauging how long a project is going to take and I thought this would be two weekends, tops. Nope! Ha. It’s […]

    Kitchen Part III: Finishing Touches

    Hi Guys! So we painted the cabinets and the countertops (yay!). I also took some time to paint the window trim black. Once we had taken all the plastic down, the kitchen felt like it was really starting to come together. Since my day job involves looking at catalogs for kitchen and bathroom fixtures all […]

    Kitchen Part II: Countertops

    Hi All! Once we painted the cabinets a nice bright white, the existing laminate countertops looked even more dated than before. I knew I wanted to tackle them next in hopes of being able to cook again. I started by taping off the lower cabinets and appliances with plastic dropcloths. I purchased a kit specifically […]
