Today I’m sharing with you a bathroom remodel!! This guest bathroom is actually at my Parents’ house… they did all of the work themselves.
Holy bathrooms Batman!! This is incredible! I adore both of these and I adore your funky additions like the hands and that utility cart idea is killer (aka I might steal that!). Love everything and cannot get over the before pictures (not sure I would have been able to use the mirror bathroom!). Well done! A regular stove, as opposed to a microwave, is preferred because it is more in keeping with the Feng Shui belief that we should slow down, become more conscious of each activity, and do activities with intention. Changing the hardware of cabinets, for example, can change the look of the kitchen without having to replace the cabinets.
Patch holes in drywall using mesh. First spread a layer of drywall mud into the hole and around its edges. Then press the patch into the mud so that it adheres evenly to the surface of the wall. Trowel the mud carefully over the patch, allow to dry, and then sand to smooth. Fresh paint, a new cabinet above the new toilet, and a cute, whimsical shower curtain and bath mat for the kiddo.
Make sure you can get hold of a contractor when you need him or her. Be cautious of businesses that list only a post office box address but no street address or that use an answering service. Don’t hire unsolicited, door-to-door contractors or those who can’t prove their qualifications. Never hire a contractor that insists you pay cash up front. Removing wallpaper is never an easy job, but it’s worth the pay off! If you have kids, put them to work too. Mine LOVED taking the paper off the walls! Wow! What a beautiful improvement! I love molding and wainscoting in a home. Thanks for the instructions. Awesome!
Most people will tell you that they get immense satisfaction from doing their own home improvements, are proud of their accomplishments, and ‘wear’ their DIY experiences with pride. However, in addition to this, the do-it-yourself-er has another, very important motivation – saving money! I admit I have been afflicted with white blight in the past. Thanks for sharing some insight on brightening my days.
