I have a new appreciation for the entire industry of Drywall Professionals. It's a skill; and it's a definite skill that I do not have. I thought perhaps our ensuite shower was a 'water saver' version. Upon entering said shower, you had about 30 seconds to shower before the water turned from nice and toasty… Continue reading Mudding and Taping -How Hard Can It Be?
Remember my post about Baking? 'Batter...the New Hair Gel?' This is similar. You know that little voice inside your head that says, 'Maybe not today Sandra'? Or when you know it's a Monday and there are certain things you should not do? Also, have I mentioned I'm impatient? Proper safety attire was adhered to throughout… Continue reading Mirror, Mirror
It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind. I know my children would be rolling their eyes at the moment, and my husband. Actually no, he is my biggest fan and would probably say, 'Whatever you think Honey is fine". He's so sweet. 🙂 If you recall from my post 'Closet Shelving...Nothin' Fancy' I mentioned we… Continue reading Pantry…or China Cabinet? 🙂
When we moved into our new house, all the closets had built-in closet organizers. Awesome! Except the one in the spare room was quite rickety. Our painters suggested it be removed, and we agreed. Now though, I'm left with an empty closet...and I need all the storage I can get. Earlier I had refinished an old ladder I had… Continue reading Closet Shelving – Nothin’ Fancy!

I believe I saw on Pinterest where someone used wainscoting as trim, with some really pretty cornice squares for the corners, and glued it - with No… Continue reading Last of the Bathroom Upgrades!!!
Ready to tackle the clear coat! But first, I had to re-sponge the areas I had to re-prime, after my sanding fiasco on Day 2. That took 10 minutes and then I let it dry 2 full hours. I applied the first coat of Clear Coat, and as I mentioned on Day 1 of 'Bathroom… Continue reading Bathroom Upgrade Day 3, 4, 5 and 6!
Because it was so late in the day on Day 1, I did not start sponging until Day 2. Giani supplies you with a sea sponge which you cut to different sizes and use to apply the 3 different colours of paint. The Bombay Black kit comes with 3 colours, as I said, besides the… Continue reading Bathroom Upgrade…Day 2
DAY 1: I'm going to share with you a recent 'upgrade' I did to our main bath. Now, I am no carpenter. In fact, I'm sure my Grandpa would be shaking his head if he saw some of the things I did! This is the 'before' photo: Now it's not a horrible bathroom...it's just kinda...boring. … Continue reading Bathroom Upgrade!
