Hello! I’m so excited to be the newest contributor here on Remodelaholic! My name is Colleen and I’m the DIY and lifestyle blogger behind Lemon Thistle – home to DIY, home decor, parties and babies. Before I share my bathroom renovation, let’s get to know each other, shall we? I’m a mama to 18 month old twins, I love to party, and my awesome hubby and I are working our way through renovations on our new home. Oh, and we’re operating on a budget too. Nice to meet you!
I just love the look of Curava. I love the different pieces of glass. Cement can be very cold and austere, but when mixed with glass and sea shells it takes on a new look, has a real earthy, warm look and comes in a variety of colors. This product is scratch resistent and heat resistent. It is sealed before installation. Hi B.Malin, You always seem to boil down the details and find your way to the real message. You are quite talented! I had hoped to spare others the same fate through sharing the blunders I did on Elliot Street. I learned plenty from these whoppers. Nice to see you and thanks for stopping in.
A quick way to update your kitchen island is to replace the counter top. We recently were able to purchase a black piece of granite for our kitchen island and replaced the existing wood top. And because the granite is so heavy, there is no need for adhesive, it just stays in place. Ask your potential hire for proof of insurance or bonding. Contractors who operate aboveboard should be prepared to share this information. Taking the extra step of calling the insurance or bond company to verify that a policy is active and paid up can offer you greater peace of mind. As well, the solid wood sides and shelves will stand up to the humidity from the bathroom better than the lower-priced items.
Halogen lights are a great addition to any room. Halogen is especially well suited to the kitchen because of the task lighting is needed. A brighter more focused light cannot be found that can outshine halogen. Great lens. I do a lot of the home improvement stuff around my house, even installed kitchen cabinets in my new kitchen. I did need a permit for the wiring and the plumbing and was glad that I checked into it before I started.
The master bathroom we painted a sage green, and the counter top and sink were replaced. We also added a white tile backsplash. Steve re-routed the main light switch, putting it inside the bathroom instead of out in the hall. We’re a cooperative community that values and depends on your input. So, let us know – how can we improve this site? Would your friends and online contacts benefit from homewyse information? Make homewyse better for everyone – send your feedback or share this page. Many thanks! I love it! I am painting some paneling in my basement right now and it actually is looking pretty good…it almost looks like wainscoting.
