What can you do with leftover cabinets from a different renovation you ask? DIY kitchen island! I was gifted these beautiful drawers by a very generous neighbor who had no need of them. My kitchen is a work in progress, to say the least, but at least we now have somewhere to eat breakfast together! […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
Well, it’s about time I shared a little bit about my summer project. It is a labor of love that my sister and I spent many hot summer days completing and I couldn’t be happier! Until the beginning of this project, our backyard was a wasteland of weeds and garbage bins. We decided it […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Trying to renovate a bathroom with a five year old home most of the time is tricky. Balancing keeping her entertained while knocking down walls is often unsuccessful. Yes, you can “have a picnic” on the bathroom floor while mommy is tiling once or twice but that is it. So, this renovation felt like a painstakingly slow […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
I was supposed to just demo the bathtub area and renovate JUST the bathtub for now…… But I really couldn’t help myself. I had to keep going. Next came the closet… Then it was the wall tile and the floor. And that is where I am now. The bathroom sink and toilet are still […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.

Sorry it took so long. I have been using all my spare time to work on more projects around the house. I am painting and shopping and working up a storm! I am thrilled with how the powder room turned out. It is a whole new space. It started as an eighties nightmare and was […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
I have been neglecting the blog. Shame on me. I have been overtaken by sick children and too many snow days to count. Welcome back to the North and then some! The powder room makeover is complete and I love it. I still haven’t done the pictures yet so you have to wait a little […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Our house has a unique powder bathroom that is set under the main staircase. You have to go down two steps once you shut the door. It is tiny at 3 x 8 feet but it’s functional. Unfortunately, it received a classic 80s makeover and has been living it ever since. Yes, that is […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
