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!
There is so much tiling in this bathroom. Since we decided to do subway tile wainscoting as well, the tiling in the bathroom is the longest part of this reno. So after we did cementboard, we waterproofed (the red stuff), and jumped into tiling! While you can tile solo, we learned in the last bathroom … Continue reading #tilelife
So in the last master bath post you all got to see how we demo'd it. Now y'all get to see it start the road to recovery! So we had to put up cement board, tape & mud it, waterproof it, then tile begins! The beginning: Cement board up, taped, and mudded! Not a lot … Continue reading Closing those walls up
Since we've basically already done this renovation once before on the guest/hall bath, the demo on the master went far more smoothly. We basically gutted the entire thing. Vanity/sink, mirror cabinet, wall cabinet, toilet, and tub all ripped out and taken away - for free! Instead of waiting for the next bulk trash pickup day … Continue reading Demo in the master bath
