Do have an older bathroom with tiled walls? If so, chances are that some of the tiles are cracked or chipped, and the tile grouting might be stained or beginning to come loose. Maybe you’re just tired of the old tile and want a newer, more modern bath. Replacing tile is messy, time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive. The old tile has to be torn out, the backer board has to be replaced, and the new tile and grout have to be installed. Much easier options lie in tub surrounds.
But it’s really hard to use the bathroom – for me – because there are no mirrors. I am making progress though.

This subject brings back such fond memories of our first home where we had that ‘small bathroom challenge’. Loved IKEA store for reasonable, funky storage ‘thangs’, like your CD racks (so creative…) I perfectly agree that small can be beautiful and charming… I had selected the coolest black lab wallpaper (you really had to see it/ only worked in a very small area…) I also love green (plant/ life) in every bathroom and candles! Cool stuff, girlfriend!

It is common when remodeling a bathroom to find plumbing problems, so it is important to have some plumbers involved in the remodel!

Shipping to a APO/FPO/DPO? Please add the address to your address book. Make sure you include the unit and box numbers (if assigned).
Well, my house was almost completely renovated when I moved in. The only thing I didn’t replace were the kitchen cabinets, so I’d probably do those. I’m not sure how much cabinets run these days, and I’m sure it depends on wood, how many, etc. If I had enough money left after the cabinets, I’d consider a new roof. If you then find you don’t get on with this then the Dremel itself is a handy little tool that has hundreds of other practical DIY uses around the home.
Take out the soffit – install a few taller cabinets and glaze in your chosen color and then you have a completely new kitchen without the expense and time of a complete renovation. Great Job!! Where did you … Read More
