Window frost cling

Here’s an easy project! When we moved into our house we had two bathroom with nice windows/natural light, but the windows were covered with shutters. The shutters were rarely opened (because they are bathrooms) so the rooms were just dark all of the time. I can’t stand dark rooms. It’s so depressing to me.

New Trim Facelift

The trim in the house was original to the 1970’s and again seemed to lack the character I was desiring for the home. It was thin and seemed disproportionate to the size of the house, rooms and halls. We moved here from a 1920’s home with all of the character you could dream of, andContinue reading “New Trim Facelift”

Landscaping BEFORE and AFTER

I wanted a fresh creamy with only a small amount of yellow in it. I didn’t want to have the house look beige, just a soft creamy. I have seenContinue reading “Painted Brick Before and After”

Desk Refresh and a Tour

My 12 year old daughter’s desk is getting much more use these days with lots of school learning taking place at home. It’s gotten quite dirty so I decided to touch up the top. I should probably apply some type of sealer over it, but haven’t got that far yet. I can paint, anything aboveContinue reading “Desk Refresh and a Tour”

New doors!

Hi Friends, Things are hopping around here. While we didn’t plan to have the house painted and doors installed within the same week. It happened and I’m glad it did. It gives our house a real transformation. We started looking at new doors and windows this winter. Our back sliding patio door seal was shot.Continue reading “New doors!”
