I am thrilled that I have passed my love of reading onto my boys. I wanted to create an area that they could curl up and read their favorite books. Our home has a very open layout. You can see from the front door to the back, and the area is sectioned by a fireplace.… Continue reading Reading Nook
Still attempting to get caught up in our renovations posts. We painted the final two rooms last summer. In another post you will see how we made the spare room into an exercise room, and one of the boys rooms became my office. I enjoy painting, when its changing up one room, but when painting… Continue reading Painting Rooms
In November we decided to replace the microwave to match the rest of the appliances. We scored a pretty good deal on this GE during a Black Friday sale. There was nothing wrong with the old microwave, so I gave it away. We installed this microwave ourselves. Let me tell you that was a pain!… Continue reading New Microwave!
Just a super quick post as I am trying to get caught up on all the renovations we have done to the house. One small thing I forgot to post was adding a sponge drawer in the kitchen below the sink. When we bought the house, on closing day we went to do a final… Continue reading Kitchen Reno – Sponge Drawer
For some reason I do not have a before photo. Just imagine large ugly round bulbs. That’s all that was there. Big round bulbs sticking out from a silver fixture, and 2 or 3 bulbs were out. 😂 We never replaced them as we had always planned to replace the fixture. The bathroom just got… Continue reading New lights in the master bath!
Oh my gosh! Life has been crazy lately! Kiddos have been acting like every night is a full moon! We have also been trying to plan out more home renos! We have replaced the lights in the master bath, renovated (partly) the kitchen ceiling – taking out some ugly tube lights, and now we are… Continue reading Long time no see…
We were having a few issues with the hot water in the bathrooms. It would be really hot one day, and lukewarm the next. I contacted the plumber that installed our water heater. He stated that we might need to replace valves to see which is causing the issue. My husband wasn’t really sure that… Continue reading New Kitchen Faucet
I haven’t painted my nails since I discovered Color Street a few months ago – but I am still not ready to get rid of my nail polish. With over 220 bottles, dip powders and accessories, it’s just too much of an investment to toss. So over the fall I built a nail polish shelf… Continue reading DIY Projects #2
When we bought our house in February we knew we needed to do some work to the front and back yards. The front yard was a little bare in spots. Sago palm trees were at the corners of the front of the house with small bushes in between, and small bushes on either side of… Continue reading Landscaping
I have been meaning to share my various projects that I do. I like to create, repair and refinish different pieces. So let’s start with a pair of bookcases that I found at a yard sale for super cheap. Growing up my dad owned his own woodworking business that I frequently “worked” at. From about… Continue reading Projects – Pt 1
