Small, narrow bathrooms can be cramped and uncomfortable, and sometimes we just don’t have enough extra space to enlarge them. If the bathroom is upstairs, simply increasing the footprint of the house may not be possible. There are DIY solutions to this home renovation dilemma, though, such as a clever re-purposing of some space borrowed from another room, or from the attic eaves.

On another evening a friend came over to paint trim. As the work progressed I got weaker it was good we hadn’t removed all the furniture; I lay on the bed as Liz painted trim. Both our husbands were out of town. It was sweltering hot. Our conversation as she painted trim that Sunday afternoon was so rich. We anchored the shelving units in place and trimmed around the cupboards on the bathroom side, painted the trim to match the baseboards, and mounted the glass we reattached … Read More

The renovation process is a give and take. For as much as it’s been glamorized in television shows, there’s a lot that happens in between the before and after shots that you don’t typically see. Ultimately, renovation is about discovering what your house can be, and letting us put in the work to make it happen.

Idea 6: If you entertain a lot and use your island mainly as a buffet, it may be preferable to use ambient bulbs for your hanging pendant light, so that it’s understated and softer lighting. Or, opt to use candles or a buffet lamp on your island. Knowledge is power Enelle! Thanks, I love it when I can DIY and surprise everyone-great feeling. Thank you for sharing! I do not find self-assembly furniture easy to assemble. I usually let someone else do it for me. Thanks for sharing this great information.

I do NOT recommend pine sol. Ive been using it for a year now and I dread washing the floors as it leaves spots and streaks. We are renting and I just had it on my to do list to find another product. Im off to buy some vinegar and a microfiber mop so I thank you for your help! I really debated whether or not to paint the pine planked ceiling.

Bathroom Remodel

Do have an older bathroom with tiled walls? If so, chances are that some of the tiles are cracked or chipped, and the tile grouting might be stained or beginning to come loose. Maybe you’re just tired of the old tile and want a newer, more modern bath. Replacing tile is messy, time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive. The old tile has to be torn out, the backer board has to be replaced, and the new tile and grout have to be installed. Much easier options lie in tub surrounds.

When updating your kitchen island and hanging pendant lighting be sure to coordinate the metal finish to other fixtures and appliances in your kitchen. If you add counter stools to your island, be sure that the finish and materials of the stools also compliment the hanging light glass fixtures. Mirrors framed in wood add a warm and sophisticated note, whereas mirrors … Read More
