Nursery Part 3

Here was my view while the hubs put the crib together. It went together really easily and minimal cursing, same with the dresser / changing table. We both love how it looks! We took a gamble when picking out this crib and dresser, we never got to see it in person. I looked at lots of reviews and everyone raved about it. I was not disappointed at all, the bee bees room is starting look more and more like a nursery!

Guest Room Update

From time to time I get bored… this is the  time the hubs might want to run away and hide. I was looking at our guest room and kinda sick of it. The blue was never the right blue. Still love the chocolate brown, but needed a change. I had originally bought new grey quilt for our master with a West Elm gift card (Thanks Matt & Carol). I love it, but got to thinking “this might be the right change that the guest room needs”. I also had the white curtains laying around.

Take a look at the before:

 

Now the After:


(the armoire is going to go, it’s on its last leg)

So there we go a pretty much free redo! I like how much lighter it looks and open!

S#@t Or Get Off The Pot

Remember way back when, I started the EASY basement bathroom reno? Yeah me either 🙂

Any who we hit a few road bumps and I had to bring in a plumber to help finish the job. So much for an easy quick project. After taking a look at the plumbing he was shock that there were no shut offs either.  A few hours of him banging around the old sink was out and I was able to install the new floor. Which would have been easy if the floor was square. Cutting peel and stick tile out around pipes and the toilet was not fun! He came back a few days later to put the new sink in, again not as easy as I thought it would be. Here is a peek back at the old bathroom.

Are you ready for this…?

It looks sooooo much better, yes it turned out to be a pain in the ass but some projects are just like that. Here is a side by side look.

YAY!! 🙂

Spring Clean Up

With it being spring and all, I LOVE working in the yard! So far I’ve just been cleaning up this winters mess.  Take a looksy to what I’ve been up too.

I have a few ideas up my sleeves too, here is what I’m thinking about…

Take a peek above to see what it looks like now. I want to take out the two big pickery bushes on either sides of the windows. They are to big and a pain in the butt to trim up. I’d also like to paint the siding on the peak of the house a light grey, to jazz the house up.  This might just be a memorial day project! 🙂

Why Can’t It Be Easy

The basement bathroom project has been humming along until this weekend. I started painting and taking down all the fixtures I didn’t need or want. 1st thing to go was the toilet seat, the new one was only 5 bucks and SO worth it (ewww). Next I made my way over to the vanity and started undoing all the screws that seemed like they were holding it together…and thats where the progress stopped.  I found 2 problems that were above my knowledge.

The lights– I unscrewed it and was expecting to see a junction box. NOPE just this hot mess!

Not really sure where to go from here… any thoughts out there in cyberspace??

The Plumbing- ummm where do I begin? So we have no IDEA where the hot water shut off is, so how does one change out the fixtures then??

The pipe on the left is the hot water line, it go’s into the wall behind the vanity. Leaving the vanity trapped, in its UGLY location. Again anyone out there with any ideas??

So yeah thats where I’m stuck I hate not having this project done already 😦  Here is a peek at how it all looks right this very second.

I laid the new tile down just to see what it would look like.

look how lonely he looks 😦 just waiting for his new home.

OI I hate this mess, and I thought this was going to be a easy little project… boooooooooooooooo.

Don’t Adjust Your Screen

Continuing on my basement reno projects, the small CREEPY bathroom is next on my list. It’s really great to have the extra bathroom down there, but eww it’s just creepy. In-fact I’ve never used it.

Don’t try to adjust the color you are seeing. The wall are a lovely shade of peach. The lights give off nothing but a peach color, kinda oompa loompa. Now my plan for this bathroom redo is going to be cheap and easy. My goal is to keep it under $200 bucks. I’m going to use the paint left over from my master bath redo. The rest is going to be instock items at Lowes or Homedepot.  Here is a sneak peek into what I’d like to do!

Grand total would be $127.22 before tax also if they have these items in stock. Wish me luck!
