Hello there. If you have a fiberglass bathtub that has yellowed, this may help you decide on what to do with it.Here is a brief post on how I updated our manufactured home's garden style fiberglass bathtub with paint. I go into more details over at K's Olympic Nest (link below) so hopefully you will check that out as well.
Since buying my home, I have always wanted a workshop/craft space. Nothing extravagant, just somewhere that I can piddle and work on projects in my spare time. Ideally I would have loved to construct a garage, but the cost to construct a garage on our property just wasn’t worth it in the long-run. That being the case, I knew that I was going to have to get creative if I wanted to construct/have a workshop/crafting space. One early Saturday morning while everyone else was still asleep, as I stared out the window watching the birds and sipping on my coffee (sounds relaxing, right?! My favorite kind of mornings!) I suddenly had the idea to turn my 8x8 shed into a me-space”…no a “she-space”….oooh…no no… A “SHED SHED/CRAFT SHACK”!!! I purchased this shed a few months prior to this day from my local community college. I got an absolute deal on this shed and was ecstatic that I would be able to get even more use than I anticipated out of it! My absolute first step was to get rid of some of the shelves and items that I had stored in the shed. This is just the first step in my She Shed conversion, but here is how I did it!
I was cleaning out my Christmas items and reorganizing my containers. I came across a bag of gold ornaments. They were left over when I decided to change the colors on my Christmas Tree. Since I change my mind often (as many of us crafters do) I had kept them 'just in case'. I did need 'something' else for my tree. You see I have a brand new lighted tree this year (my old one was over 20 yrs old! I have to have a fake tree because I'm allergic to real and I was excited to get this new one that was just a tad bit bigger than my old one). Since it was bigger, I had more space to fill. YAY me!! More projects!! I had just finished all of the other items I wanted to complete and was hankerin' (yes that's a word according to my southern hubby..) for another fun , easy and quick project... this is what I came up with.
If your bathtub face boring and flat like mine, do this! For under $10 and an hour you can elevate the look of your bathroom with PVC box trim. This project requires no power tools! My favorite projects are always cheap, easy, but impactful!
We are currently remodeling our major bathroom. Our home is 97 years old and through the 35 years that we have lived here we have done many projects to make changes. We have a set of French doors that we took down many years back. They have been stuck away in a storage closet. I have always wanted to do something with the set or just one of them. During our bathroom project, we removed a wall with the intention of replacing with something more attractive. As I was contemplating what to replace the old wall with I remembered the French doors. So, I asked my husband, who does a lot of the carpentry work for me if he thought that was a feasible idea. So plans are set in motion and we get busy. It was my intent to use as much of the antique parts and pieces that we have saved through the years and that is exactly what we did. The paint was the only thing that we had to purchase. The project took longer than we intended because the weather (snow and cold temperatures) brought everything to a standstill.
I must admit that I was SUPER intimidated to do this project. I've seen it around online and had to try it, but I felt like I was going to royally mess it up. With some logistical help and elbow grease from my dear sweet husband, we got this project done, and it wasn't near as painful as I thought it would be. I feel like this tub makeover screams,"Welcome to the spa! (minus my horrible floor--haha!)"We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

This time of year is the greatest … back out in the garden, in the sun, doing yard work, and mowing. I can get some of my best thinking done while I'm on a mower.I love to repurpose and upcycle, so it's also the perfect time to start pulling out my stuff and making new things for my yard and garden.
My sister asked if I would be able to make her a pallet daybed for her entertainment area. She wanted the daybed to be big enough for 2 people to sit comfortably on and wanted it to be sturdy. Her entertainment area is sheltered but when we get heavy rain it does get wet. That is why she chose to have the daybed made from pallets.

Ya’ll! I didn’t think some black spray paint could make a girl so happy, but man! I LOVE the way my windows look now!! All it took was some tape and a can of black spray paint! Taping is the worst part because I’m so impatient and just want to get going to the fun stuff - just me? All of the prep work is worth it in the end but I always want to rush through it so that I can move on to the real part of the project!

After painting the interior of my She Shed/Craft Shack it was time for me to work on the outside. When the shed initially was delivered, I had it placed at the very back of the property. Every project I would have to trudge all the way back there at least 10 times to get tools and supplies. Needless to say, that got old... QUICK. Major changes were in order for this little shed’s location and exterior! Here is how I did it for less than $200!
