So, about that bathroom??

Once upon a time in a month far, far away two middle-aged busy parents started a master bathroom renovation. I wanted to do a little huge list here for you just in case you have nothing to do and want to spend the next 73 hours reading my blog. There were lots of posts about …

Fifteen Minute Shelf

Psst: Sometimes I totally forget that I blog. This week was one of those times. Someone will ask about something and then I’m all, “Oh. Right. The blog.” I made a shelf. In fifteen minutes! And it was free! Remember this mirror in my entryway? I wanted to put a little ledge underneath it…just a …

Sounds Like a Hoarder to Me

I picked these legs up off the curb a couple years ago when I was out “treasure hunting” with my favorite treasure-hunting buddy and her mom. There was no table. Just the legs. I kinda thought I’d cut them down and use them for a bench (because I was looking for a bench at the …

Vanities Built

Alright, last we left off, we had one vanity shell built forever and we had decided on drawer fronts from IKEA. They’re no longer available, but they’re these. The shell is just made from panels on the sides, and then 1x2s across the front to form the rails and stiles. There are pieces of wood …

I’m more familiar with the statement, “I’m losing my freakin’ mind.” Which brings us to the ever-elusive vanities. Freaking vanities. Tomato. Tomahto. Okay, so I hate bathroom vanities that are just doors. You know? Like the only reason …

♪♫Oops! I Did It Again♫♪

Just kidding. Haha. Wouldn’t that be horrible? We didn’t do it again, but that song kept running through my head the entire time the hubs was working on that part. Last we left off with the master bathroom, it was looking like this… (That’s taken from the bathtub corner.) After demo was complete, we had …

Upcycling Memories

We bought two plain ol’ counter-height stools back in 2002 when we bought our very first house. (I’m almost positive that they came from Walmart, but I couldn’t find a comparably-priced version on Walmart’s site. They were nearly identical in style and price to this counter stool from Target.) We used them at our first …
