Basically our entire house is currently rocking beige ceramic tile, or as our realtor lovingly called it, the 99 cent special. Re-doing the floors was on our radar from the get go with this house. We knew we wanted to do laminate plank, but were dreading the process. Especially since we knew it was going … Continue reading Floors – we’re coming for you.
It's truly spring in Texas! With the great weather we've been itching to spend more time outside on our back patio. We painted the patio last spring, and since then have been toying around with resurfacing our covered patio since the finish isn't in the best shape. Unfortunately, after researching we realized it was going … Continue reading Patio wrap up
When we moved into this house, we knew we wanted to update the existing kitchen cabinets. For context: after we did the last update, this is where we stood: We had gotten new appliances, taken down the fluorescent lighting and installed can lights, painted (walls and ceiling), added some light switches, and patched some mistakes. … Continue reading Kitchen cabinet update
So guys, we live in a ranch. So we don't have a basement. Which means our heater is parked right in the middle of our house in this eyesore of a closet. When we replace the floors/ trim we're planning on swapping out all the flat doors like this to new doors like we used … Continue reading Utility closet makeover
I totally dropped the ball on this one. The last time I talked about our master bedroom closet project was back in January of last year. Well, they have been completed since then. The short of it was we put up the doors and installed the hardware. The long version is, we got doors, trimmed … Continue reading Long overdue closet update
Now that everything is done in the Master bathroom, here's the true before and after! The view from the bedroom: At this point there's not much else to say other than everything is new. I guess technically the ceiling and the top half of the walls are the only things original to this bathroom, but … Continue reading Before and After: Master Bathroom
So even though this project isn't quite home reno or furniture building, it was a DIY adventure. A while ago I built myself a makeup vanity and have been trying to find a seating solution ever sense. I've just been using a chair that is always getting bumped into, isn't comfy, and also doubles as our … Continue reading DIY thrifted vanity stool
Guys. The bathroom is done (pretty much). After we finished tiling, we got the shower hardware installed: Installed the hand towel ring, toilet paper holder, light fixture, and hung the mirror: We actually decided that the light/mirror was too smooshed together, so went back and raised the light and mirror to make it feel less … Continue reading Master bath finishing touches
The master bath tile is finally finished!!! (it's actually been finished a while...) After we ground down the subway tile to look a little cleaner around the niche, I dry fitted all the tile for the wall niche (which took quite a bit longer than expected). We wanted to be sure water wouldn't stagnate in … Continue reading #Tilelife is over!
We're creeping towards getting this bathroom DONE. With Halloween happening, bathroom reno kind of got put on the back burner this past weekend. Despite that, we have been making progress. We installed all the trim (baseboards, door trim, and the finishing trim for the wainscoting). (We also replaced the old cream light switches with new … Continue reading (almost) the home stretch!
