Brick Wall

Once all three bathrooms in this house were complete, we could get to work on the kitchen. Finally! Today’s post is brought to you by classic DIY television. You know, back when they used to teach you things on HGTV and TLC and The Discovery Channel. Just kidding. None of my posts are brought to …

Bathroom Reveal (part 3)

It’s finally time to reveal the master bathroom. Unlike the other two bathrooms in our house, it was completely gutted. Here’s a before pic… (There’s also a shower out of sight to the left of the bathtub.) Other than being dated, boring, and ugly, it was moldy and gross. It just made the most sense …

Bathroom Reveal (part 1)

First up in the week o’ bathroom reveals is the boys’ bathroom, because it’s the most fun. Here’s a before picture… This is a Jack and Jill bathroom. The door that you’re looking at goes to the boys’ bedroom and the doorway that the pic is taken from goes to the guest room. That wood …

You get what you pay for!

I don’t even really want to talk much about our shower door. Suffice it to say that you get what you pay for. I won’t go into any detail about installation, as that will be different for every door/shower/person. Let me just say that there were times I kinda wanted to take a sledge hammer …

I Need Balance

Remember when I showed you the guest bathroom board and batten? I had left the toilet paper holder where it originally was, but that ended up being not centered in the middle of a section of board and batten. Stuff like that annoys me. It’s the small things that really add up to make your …

Finally a Master Bathroom Post

Seriously guys?! Where have you been? I’ve had three bathroom reveals to show you for, like, ever. Geez. I couldn’t even remember where I left off. I had to look back through old posts to figure out where I stopped showing you progress. Seems like you’re pretty much caught up in the guest and boys’ …

Traditional Surprise

We’re closing in on all these bathrooms and I’m getting excited to reveal them to you, but I’m already annoyed because I still only have my phone camera and barely know how to use that. 😉 Maybe you guys all just need to come over for a huge reveal party (someone bring a latte machine!) …

Happy Birthday To Me

Today is not my birthday. But it wasn’t very long ago, and we did this… I busted into the wall between the living room and kitchen (without telling anyone) while the hubs and kids were upstairs playing video games. (Pretty sure I scared them half to death.) Don’t anyone get excited. I was just checking …

My Madness Explained

I’m sure it seems absurd that I started on the other two bathrooms in this house before the master bathroom was finished. But the thing is, it really does make sense. I really do have a madness method. The hubs and I each have different areas where we excel, or types of projects that we …
