Master Bathroom Edition (2)

For some reason, I can’t convince myself to take it easy on projects around the house, and lately my mind has been wandering to the least favorite room in our home: The Bathroom.

As for the basic materials such as glue, nails, screws, sandpaper (you need to scuff sand all surfaces before you apply adhesives), etc, just go to your local hardware or home improvement store. Use granite remnants for counters. Granite shops often have small bits of granite left over from bigger jobs and will sell you enough for a bathroom vanity counter at a discount. To find out what’s available, call your local shops first then drop by to see the granite and negotiate the price. She covers the big ugly electric box that some yahoo decided to put right in the middle of the bathroom wall. Boo to bad design!

This is directly across from the sunflower cabinet we were just talking about. It’s also where the new shower will be. The kitchen or bathroom has always been the safest room in which to spend your hard earned money because, if done correctly and with a cautious eye on the budget, you will almost certainly recoup at least the initial investment and possibly more. That’s why refacing your kitchen makes so much sense. The problem of closet space in the guest-bedroom was solved by installing a large cabinet on either side of the window. Purchased at a big-box store, the cabinets fit nicely one either side, filling in the space as if they had been especially built for the room.

I grew up in Alaska and have always wanted to live in a quonset hut. That just wasn’t done back then – I’m talking in the 1960s. But now that no one tells me what to do (I got divorced), I may finally do as I please, and get one built! I hope I can paint it yellow. It came out really darling, and I love the blue accents! And I know it was a ton of work, because we DIY’d ours.

Yeah, before and after photos rock, and I, too, have felt silly many a time for forgetting to take ‘before’ photos! Concrete countertops are not made completely of concrete, but also include mortar and sand. Concrete countertops are able to take on various colors, which provides homeowners with many options. Additionally, they are resistant to heat and there is an industrial look that often comes with concrete countertops. I’m sorry for my lengthy post – I feel like I have talked your ear off. Thanks for listening! Hope you have a great week!
