I turned my attention to painting the new headboard that Ron had built for me as a Christmas present. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint, added a touch of dark finishing wax to the moldings and finished it off with the Annie Sloan wax. (did I mention that Joy ate the very expensive wax brush that I had splurged on???-I ended up using an old t-shirt instead and it worked just fine).
Marie, ya never know what is going to happen in MO. One day it is warm and the next temperature plummets! Oh yes, do place a sunroom on your honey-do list. You and your honey will really enjoy it!! Contractors are used to running into unforeseen problems and are often dogged with changes by the client half way through the project. So it is certainly understandable that they’d want to budget some cushion in their bid. However, it’s common for them to budget in a 100 percent cushion, which most other industries would find unacceptable. We chose a nice new light fixture that matched the rest of the hardware and installed it in the same location.
Bathroom cabinets are also getting more expansive and more specialized, with storage space and compartments for all kinds of toiletries, supplies, and small appliances like electric toothbrushes, hair dryers, curling irons, flat irons, and electric shavers. Some are complete with electrical outlets that are hidden when the cabinet is closed. shiningirisheyes, Thank you, your right my husband is more than handy. He can do just about anything when it comes to building. He’s working on the living room now. Thanks you for stopping.
Arlene-thanks for sharing your experience. As I had stated in my hub, if I owned the house it would be a major remodeling project-walls down, room expanded, etc. Since it is a rental I don’t have the right to do that, so I make do with the ‘brighten the room’ tips that I offer here. Good luck with your bathroom project, haha. Everything that was in the bathroom has been moved out – stuff we use but not on a daily basis, stuff we will donate, and the few things we use every day. After I take my shower I’ll move the last few items into our suitcases, hang the wet towels in the bedroom, and pack up the bed linens for our move to temporary housing with friends.
Get glass cut to size at a local glass store, with the edges rounded for safety, mount the paper or fabric on the wall, and mount the glass over the top. I have painted every room in my house a different color, and each room provides me with a different sense of warmth. My guest bathroom is Autumn Gourd and my master bath is Teal Mosaicâboth colors make each room so much more than bathrooms. Thank you for this inspiring lens. I truly enjoyed it.
