This post is a bit of a throwback, to the first house we owned. I’ll be doing a series of posts on this house, because we were able to make such big changes on a small budget.
I’m very impressed with your project and even more on the way you documented it. This is going to be my bible for a project in my son’s room. Thank you very much! This is the first time I’ve found a comprehensive step by step process that I really liked and felt I could do. The bowl was $60, because it came with a stand that made it look like a bird bath… I may use the stand for yard art… who knows.

The upstairs bathroom has been out of commission for some time. We decided not to remodel it when we did our big addition/remodel on our house back in 2008. But now that the girls are getting a bit older, it would be very nice to let them use their own bathroom! The space is so so so so small that Andy can’t even stand up all the way in there. This bathroom will be for 3 girls! Yep, that’s right!!
Plenty of storage is essential in a small space. Before deciding on storage however, it may be a good idea to purge all non-essential items.

Cool, I haven’t thought about pendant lighting for the island, I’m thinking you could also … Read More

Though not originally from Never Never Land, I sure feel that’s where I live some days. Renovations always take longer than anticipated, cost more than was budgeted, involve more work than you bargained for, and can be fraught with challenges. Don’t you love that word – challenges – it just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Some days, not so much..but whether reno-ing a space or a hub, I am passionate about family, music, writing in all forms, and great food.

More than a year in the past, I shut the door to a room in our home. Sick of taking a look at it, wishing it might magically remodel into a place of serenity and peaceful luxury, I merely shut the door on it is darkish ugliness, as a result of it was simpler than dealing with it.
New fixtures should use as little water as possible. Choose low-stream showerheads, high-efficiency toilets and water-conserving aerators on sink faucets. If a water heater wants alternative, choose a high-efficiency mannequin and consider a tankless heater or a hot-water circulation possibility if the principle water heater is some distance away from the bathroom. Include a plumbing access door for shower valves.
