When it’s cold outside, it’s a great time for small home improvement projects. This week I am republishing an older post about how we tackled repairing and replacing the interior window sills in the dining room and entry way. I hope it will inspire you that small projects can make a big impact!
Believe it or not, choosing the new bathtub was probably the single hardest decision of our entire bathroom renovation. How could something so utilitarian be so complicated? Today, I am sharing tips on how we came to the right decision for our remodel and to make it the choice easier on anyone who considers doing a bathroom remodel.
For our bathroom, we chose a white subway tile that looks like brick for our shower walls. When installing a beveled subway tile, there are some important characteristics that make it a bit different to work with than other tiles but the classic look is so worth it.
Finding just the right curtains can be a real pain. And even if you do find the perfect pattern and weight, they have to be the right length and top. But never fear! You can easily change the style to suit you needs or even make your own curtains in an afternoon. Today I am sharing with you how to add grommets to curtain panels because it’s a pretty simple project.
You may be surprised to find that many homes, like mine, don’t have overhead lights in all the rooms. We are on a mission to wire and install 4 new lights in the house but keep our energy costs very low. You won’t believe how crazy the lighting was in my work-space but now it’s light and bright!
You ever notice how one project just seems to lead to another on the ‘ol list? When we had our solid hardwood floors installed, I was shocked at the price to replace the balusters, railings, and steps. But 2 $25 quarts of paint and some elbow grease made a huge difference.
Welcome to week 5, the last week before the reveal, of the One Room Challenge! I created a gallery wall
We are sprinting down the finish line in the garage makeover! The last time I updated you, we had a major project in mudding and painting the garage walls. Now, we are moving on to updating the garage floors!
If you are in the market for a new backsplash or accent, and don’t want the hassle or expense of traditional stone or glass tile, you might want to consider taking a look at peel and stick tile. This glass tile really changed the whole atmosphere of the kitchen giving it a modern and sophisticated feel.
Our bathroom is desperate. If your like me, when you sit down with all the choices of decorating elements and finishes, do you find yourself second-guessing myself or changing your mind over and over? When you can’t “see” a finished project in your mind, it can be overwhelming. Well, at least the choice of shower/bath can be easier with this handy tool I have found to visualize it all!
Today’s post is in response to a reader question I received some time ago about how to clean brass that has been heavily tarnished and showing it’s age. Yes, you can get bright and shiny solid brass with a bit of effort.
The hot summer days are keeping us indoors but the summer nights really come alive with these new string lights. Even if you don’t have a covered deck or pergola, you can hang these in just a few minutes!
