Renovating 407: The Master Bath

The 70s were a good decade. I mean my parents were married. I was born. My brother was born. But that decade is long gone and needed to be long gone out of my house too. This bathroom is on the smaller side, it's not an en suite type of bathroom. It works for me …

Renovating Update

Finally getting somewhere. Still too many started projects that I am too exhausted to finish. Need new windows, stucco updated and a new furnace. (Must win lottery or have them donated.) Single mom seeking benefactor. Haha. Can finally shower in the master bathroom. And finally have a door on the bathroom. My mom is getting …

Top Posts for 2017

I don't get a lot of traffic. I don't post enough.  Interesting that my home page was hit 211 times. In fact, on that list, very few are actual posts from 2017 or even posts at all. But here were my top 5 posts of 2017. #1 Industrial Towel Bar This was a post from early …

Renovating 407: The Laundry Closet

The washer and dryer fit in a nook in the hallway. The other side of the nook is the master bathroom. This closet even had plastic accordion doors (and came with the washer and dryer). The washer and dryer came out (and sold). Leaky water line everywhere. Which included a fun story about having to …

Renovating 407: The Creative

I was thinking yesterday I should have called it The Updating of 407. Because that is what most of it has been. My dad had to put tar on the dryer vent on the roof the other day, it was raining into my torn up shower. When they put up the new roof, right before …

Renovating 407: A Pantry was Born

You may wonder what building a pantry has to do with redoing, recycling, upcycling. And really it doesn't other than it has to do with the renovating of the house. My mom had the bright idea that I needed a pantry (I really did) in the corner where the previous owners used to have a …

Renovating 407: The Kitchen Island

I opened up the kitchen by taking out that wall as you may recall.   I really didn't want such a closed in kitchen and I though a sit at island would look awesome. I wasn't entirely sure I was going to take that wall down and how I was going to create the island …

Renovating 407: The Hall Bath

Maybe I wouldn't be so loathsome of wallpaper if it hadn't been on every wall in 4 rooms. 7 different wallpapers. This is the hall bathroom. In great shape. Beautiful porcelain tub. But bathes do not stay warm in it. Great marble sink. But the vanity is plastic. The tiles are also in great shape. …

Ain’t no Boring Mailbox

I’m sitting here at soccer practice, so I am going to steal from a Facebook post showing the mailbox I DIYed... Adventures in renovating: somewhere past week 55⏩ I saw this blog post about their pool progress, week 16. And I thought, it's June and they aren't finished after 16 weeks. That's crazy. It's pool …

The Two Year Progress: Or Lack Thereof

Two years ago I bought this house. A house that a lot more work was put into than initially anticipated. In fact, I still haven't shared every completed room in the house. Because not every room is completed. So now that I am at the two year mark, I decided it's time to break down …
