For some reason, I can’t convince myself to take it easy on projects around the house, and lately my mind has been wandering to the least favorite room in our home: The Bathroom.
As for the basic materials such as glue, nails, screws, sandpaper (you need to scuff sand all surfaces before you apply adhesives), etc, just go to your local hardware or home improvement store. Use granite remnants for counters. Granite shops often have small bits of granite left over from bigger jobs and will sell you enough for a bathroom vanity counter at a discount. To find out what’s available, call your local shops first then drop by to see the granite and negotiate the price. She covers the big ugly electric box that some yahoo decided to put right in the middle of the bathroom wall. Boo to bad design!
This is directly across from the sunflower … Read More

When my husband and I bought our house this last May, we immediately knew that our master bathroom needed a complete makeover. We honestly hated everything about it and what made matters worse was the shower was unusable (yuck!). We started the re-model at the beginning of February. We hired a contractor to assist us with removing the old shower and installing a new soaking tub. My hubby did all the other work on his own. He is amazing!!!
You might also try painting one piece, changing the hardware, and maybe even add a marble, granite, tile, or Mosaic top to transform a standard piece of furniture into a fun, artsy, unique item. Decoupage and other techniques can also be used. Items in a room should coordinate and create a balanced, complementary look while serving as functional parts of your home but items that look like they came out of … Read More
Though not originally from Never Never Land, I sure feel that’s where I live some days. Renovations always take longer than anticipated, cost more than was budgeted, involve more work than you bargained for, and can be fraught with challenges. Don’t you love that word – challenges – it just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Some days, not so much..but whether reno-ing a space or a hub, I am passionate about family, music, writing in all forms, and great food.

Enhance the value of your home and increase your living space by finishing or remodeling your basement.
A drop, or suspended, ceiling offers a way to both conceal and provide access to electrical and plumbing lines via the removable tiles. You may have a preconceived notion that such a ceiling will look more like an office than a home, but there are plenty of attractive options available. These ceilings will reduce the amount of overhead space available, so keep that in mind when planning.
We also have ideas for the rest of the basement, but they are a bit more flexible. Right now we’re thinking a video area (couch and chairs, decently large screen), a mini-kitchen (sink, microwave and cabinets, perhaps with some kind of counter with seating), an area that could be a ping-pong table or a kitchen table if our parents moved in, and perhaps a workout area … Read More
I’m trying to get a new Buffalo grass lawn up and running while spending the least amount of money. I told you can’t buy Buffalo grass seed, should I plant with Buffalo runners instead?
It’s true that you cannot buy Buffalo grass seed. This is mainly due to the fact that it is a very poor performer when propagating from seed and will return an almost zero growth rate. So the next best option to start a new Buffalo lawn cheaply will be to grow it from runners, and this is exactly how the big turf farmers grow their Buffalo too.

I had talked about it several times.. and finally convinced Mr.Z and our contractor/cabinet maker son, that we needed to remodel the bathroom now and make it accessible for the elderly and handicap.
The walls are tough and durable, especially the fiberglass tub surrounds. They come in a variety of colors and different textures, ranging from smooth as glass to rough. When properly installed and sealed, the tub surrounds are totally impervious to moisture. I like having glass doors on my cabinet so I can easily see what I need and how to organize things. Some of my cabinets from China have been top notch, others have had handles that have started to come undone and unsmooth surfaces. A strategically placed TV can get you caught up with the latest news and weather while getting ready for your day.
