What do you think? Would you hire us? I think we’re totally burnt out on remodeling! Too bad because I have dreams for the other bathroom and the laundry room…not to mention the kitchen! Plywood utility panels to the rescue. They come in 8′ x 4′ sheets for around $24/each. After a little wood conditioner and stain, we ripped them into strips and nailed them right over the existing beam.

It can help insulate the room due to its density and generally lasts a long time when maintained. If you are trying to significantly drive down costs, using paneling for the walls is an effective option. It is very light, inexpensive and pre-finished in a variety of different sizes and types. Labor costs may also decrease because paneling is easier to transport … Read More
Here is the original mold damage. (Barf.) Luckily, it’s all been remedied and rebuilt. The whole space is now framed out with new plumbing and electrical lines.
Many bathrooms are small, and because of that most people paint them a light color to open them up. Since white is the most common fixture color, light walls with white fixtures can seem ordinary or boring unless you take steps to prevent that happening. Hah! That’s more than a stab.

That is the one room that everyone spends the most time in. Supposedly. Great Hub. These are all very neat ideas for bathroom renovations. Renovated a bathroom is a great way to update and increase the value of the home.

It will help you visualize the size and mass of the furniture in a very concrete way and you can get a better idea of how the space will work in three dimensions instead of two. You can actually walk around the room and see how it fits, if there is enough room to walk past it, if it looks too overpowering or is too small to anchor the space, and … Read More
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).
