After two years of struggling with storage space in our existing pantry, we moved the pantry renovation to the top of our "Never ending honey-do-list". We started out with a common
looking pantry with utility wire shelving hidden behind a set of bi-fold doors. But after a little "sweat equity" we transformed the pantry into a custom built-in with adjustable wooden shelves, drawer sliders, and the best part of all, all of the storage that we could ask for! (We're also working on a series of tutorials where we share the plans of how we built the cabinet. Here's the first set of plans: http://www.thediyvillage.com/2013/05/build-a...) #BeforeandAfter#DIY#kitchenpantry
Plagued with the typical 32"x 32" builder special shower stall, I went on a mission to find a practical way to store my shower items without worrying about them getting knocked over of
falling off the wall.
On a trip to IKEA I came across the GRUNDTAL hanging system and found a kit that contained three stainless steel shelves that attach to bars and hook over a rail. Without the bars they were perfect mountable shower shelves that could easily be hung on either side of our shower head.
After a quick coat of oil rubbed bronze spray paint, Matt hung them on the wall using wall anchors and screws. He covered the screw heads with silicone to prevent them from rusting.
The end result no more shampoo perched on tiny ledges. Everything is up off the floor and well within our reach.
The former owner of our house installed 3 pendant lights kits above the kitchen island. The kits are pretty nice because instead of having to be hard wired in, they screw in just like a
light bulb. So instant transformation! The only thing we didn't like about the pendant lights were the existing pendants. We looked at most of our home improvement stores in the area, but didn't find the look we wanted. So we opted to make our own. Jacque decided she wanted to convert ball jars into pendants...And gave me the responsibility of making that happen.
By far, one of the most physically demanding projects I've ever completed, installing this paver path proved to be worth every sore muscle. We've broken down the steps to installing your very own paver path!
In our new house, I decided to commandeer one of the extra bedrooms as my very own craft room! I wanted an accent wall that really defined the space as my own and was SUPER excited when
my husband, Matt, agreed to help me with the project! We take you through the steps of creating your own stencil, how to transfer the design to the wall, to hand painting the design, we'll break down the steps of how to achieve your very own trellis patterned wall!
