The Playroom

We completed a room! The playroom is the first room upstairs I can say is completely done! I don’t even have to go back and fix or change anything, believe it or not. This room (along with the entire upstairs)¬†went all the way down to studs. It was rewired, reinsulated, drywalled, new windows installed, theContinue reading “The Playroom”

Working on Multiple Rooms

I’ve been a little scatter brained when it comes to what I’m working on at the moment. My entire upstairs needs work before we can actually use the space. The upstairs consists of 4 bedrooms (one in which I’ve turned into the master closet), and the second floor bathroom. Each room is in varying statesContinue reading “Working on Multiple Rooms”

New Back Door

I haven’t posted in awhile mainly because I’ve been taking a break from the renovation life. It takes a toll on you. There is a lot of unnecessary pressure I put on myself to keep checking things off of my to do list. The fact of the matter is, if nothing else ever got doneContinue reading “New Back Door”

100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before

This porch is the most beautiful and ugliest part of this house. It was a huge selling feature for me when I purchased the home. It has definitely seen some renovation over the years. As you can see from one of the original pictures the previous homeowner brought to me a few months back, theContinue reading “100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before”

Cascade – House Update

The week before last, Josh took vacation in order to make some good progress on his house. He was able to get drywall up in the master, kitchen, hall and hall bath. Josh also hung the cabinets in the kitchen so that we could really feel out the layout. I have to say, his kitchenContinue reading “Cascade – House Update”

Vintage Dresser Vanity

Most of the upstairs bathroom is now complete. There are only a few small paint items left and some decor choices to decide on. With so many fun features in this bathroom like the 1921 clawfoot tub and the huge walk in tile shower, it’s hard to narrow down my favorite thing about this space.Continue reading “Vintage Dresser Vanity”

Master Bathroom-Part 1

A few pictures showing the progress in the upstairs bathroom. It is an onsuite for the master bedroom as well as the bathroom for the other 3 bedrooms upstairs. I’ve been in hurry up mode to get this project completed for my re-appraisal. I’m nearing the end and thought I’d organize some of the pictureContinue reading “Master Bathroom-Part 1”

Staycation Vacation

I am notorious for taking vacations and staying home. For the past three years I’ve used every day of relaxing time to work on my house. I try to do so much myself to first save money, but second learn and gain experience. I enjoy trying new things and putting myself to the test ofContinue reading “Staycation Vacation”

Repurposing the Original Mantels (Part 2)

I finished the second mantel this past Saturday. This one I am using in Ezra’s playroom upstairs as a bookshelf. I first added the beadboard to the mantel opening. Next, I used my miter saw and nail gun(my two favorite tools) to make simple shelves out of some scrap wood I had in the backContinue reading “Repurposing the Original Mantels (Part 2)”

Repurposing the Original Mantels (part 1)

This Saturday, on a whim, I decided to drag the original mantels outside and finally do something with them. They have been sitting in my entryway since I took them out of the front rooms. I didn’t want to reuse them in their traditional sense because they didn’t quite go with my design style, butContinue reading “Repurposing the Original Mantels (part 1)”
