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!!!
Storage space in small bathrooms can be tricky, especially if you do away with any existing bathroom cabinets. One option is to use recessed cabinets. It’s fairly easy to install a recessed medicine cabinet that’s large enough to store toiletries. Whether you choose the halogen light to be from the ceiling, under the cabinet or even at the floor, the halogen light will make a major statement in your kitchen. What a great update! But what if you want to use your island for eating and entertaining as well? One solution for multi-use lighting is to buy a light fixture with a dimmer switch. This will provide you with good lighting for tasks and softer lighting for dining.
This first photo is the small dining area. We removed the wallpaper from below the wainscoting and used two tones of terracotta-colored paint. We’ve also changed out the old light fixture above the dining table with a hanging lantern that was actually intended for exterior lighting. Thanks so very much, vocal coach – writing the HubNuggets round-up is always great fun! I wish I could enjoy the renos, too, but I’m no longer in the little house. You can do a lot with fresh paint, baskets, and some creative shelving, but that can be hard in a rental.
Use a curved linoleum knife to score and snap cement board to length and width. It works better and lasts longer than a utility knife. Your new-and-improved bathroom looks great! Using a dresser rather than buying a new vanity is a great way to put something to use and save money at the same time. As for your handyman husband, you are very lucky that he can do those types of renovation.
Often times pets are not comfortable being around a construction site. The loud noises can be painful for dogs and cats ears. Caged pets may be extremely restless in their cages. Dust and unseen chemicals may be hazardous to fish. Arent you supposed to say the kitchen and master bath? I would put it toward a man cave- pool table, flat screens and much more!
