This past weekend, we did a quick remodel of our bathroom. My spouse repainted the walls, doors, and trim. He replaced the baseboard and the vanity, because water took a toll on our only bathroom, and the laminate started to come off the vanity. We have new baseboard that is a type of vinyl, but it looks like wood now that it is painted and caulked. My spouse is so handy from fixing everything around here that he works fast. The vanity and sink that we removed was donated to Stardust: Goodwill’s version of a ReStore. The sink was in great condition.

I have no experience with design and decorating, none-the-less we are a pretty handy family. We did an addition on our house some years ago. We certainly are not new to D.I.Y. projects.
One of his sons lived in the house for years until he died. He was known to be a hermit. He did not believe in electricity or plumbing. He used an outhouse, kerosene lanterns and had an old cast iron wood stove for heat and cooking. The house sat empty for a few years and vandals set fire on the floor. In 1963 electricity and plumbing was installed, and not expertly I might add, when a family purchased the house and moved in.

Pale creamy yellow paint on the walls and fresh white trim completed the makeover, turning what was once a cramped, awkward space into a beautiful and stylish, totally successful, small bathroom renovation. We also replaced the old shutter style medicine cabinet with a new mirrored one Mirrors are always your friends! They make a space feel larger and brighter, use them whenever possible!

I’m not the most confident driver. Part of my love for the Shasta Compact is that 1) it was within the towing capacity of my small RV -the Toyota Rav4 , and 2) its compactness makes towing a bit less intimidating. When planning a … Read More
Through failure we learn to succeed! This is a blog about fighting back. It’s about picking yourself up off the floor, dusting yourself off, and getting right back in there. It’s about holding yourself accountable, having the right mindset, and learning to live a healthy lifestyle.
Losing the entire floor also meant losing all the plumbing that was underneath the house as well. All the existing bathroom fixtures, bathtub, sink and commode were useless without extensive replacement plumbing and new fixtures. Yes, I like corner vanities too though sometimes they’re a bit too small for my liking. Still, it really does depend on available space. Changing the rug or towels in the bathroom, or a new bedspread or curtains in the bedroom can change of the look of the room without any remodeling whatsoever.
If you are tech-savvy, you might want to invest in floor plan software that will make … Read More
Back around to curbside. The louvered windows all work, and the storage cabinet holds the vintage leveling jacks that came with her.
Skylights work well in most any kitchen and any ceiling type. The size and positioning has to be carefully considered. A skylight doesn’t have to be large to make a big impact – the daylight will provide the impact – leave that to Mother Nature. Good idea for a closet in the bathroom. I have one and love the storage there and that items are hidden in there too. Good for you doing this reno!
A few things all old house lovers are familiar with: Drafty windows, less-than-perfect plumbing, squeaky floors—and small bathrooms. While new home baths have nearly doubled in size over the past 30 years, old home bathrooms average about 5- by 8-feet. For instance, if you were interested in changing the location of the toilet, … Read More
One of the biggest home renovation challenges can be creating space in a small, main bath where no space actually exists.
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 the baseboard and touched up the few, small scuffs and nail holes. In the adjacent office, we removed the wall board from the wall that backs on the bathroom, and found the center stud in the span of the wall. Then, with a reciprocating saw, we carefully removed the lathe and plaster from the bathroom wall, across the width of the center stud to the next stud on either side. Old fishing poles can be used as a form of wall art. Simply hang them from a bamboo pole and fishing line.
If that doesn’t suit you, you can create … Read More
