We started out with a dingy, dark tan half bathroom painted by the previous owners. We knew we wanted to do something unique with the space and something that would brighten it up. Today I want to show you how we turned our bathroom into a fun room with my DIY Coastal Planked Wall tutorial using Plaid Crafts' FolkArt Milk Paint.
When your budget gets changed because your husband thinks a new floor is more important than sliding barn doors you get creative with what you have. I’m not going to talk bad about these louvered bi-fold doors, since there are lots still in use. It’s not that they are ugly but good grief they are a pain to clean and didn’t fit my new farmhouse inspired Prayer/Workout room.How I made my closet doors fit “my style”. Tools: Chop saw, tape measure and hot glue gun (don't skimp, the cheap ones don't last). Supplies: Dated bi-fold doors, V-groove pine boards (Lowes), lots of glue sticks, caulk and your favorite Paints color.Measure the slat opening, from left to right and cut your pine board to fit. Start at the bottom, tongue side up. Apply hot glue on any surface the first board will touch and hold into place for about 15 seconds. Then apply glue to the first boards tongue and on the next few slats. Then slide the groove side onto the tongue of the first board and press down for 15 seconds. Repeat until your doors are covered. (see short video)Use caulk to fill in any gaps around the edges and prep for paint.I used:Shabby Paints Snow White over the pine slats to match the rest of the door then painted everything Licorice (black) then distressed. Add your favorite hardware and enjoy your beautiful work.Happy Happy Happy

Today I’m going to show you how my husband built a window bench with storage for our master bedroom.I’ve had this project burning in the back of my mind for a long time. Initially, I really wanted a window bench with drawers, but we had an incident, you can read more about it on my blog (https://avantimorocha.com) so I decided to ditch the drawers and simply make a bench with a trunk instead.
As we are re-siding our house from a pale yellow vinyl siding to a new "greige" (gray with brown tint) something had to be done to update or hide the utility meter.Repurposing old vinyl shutters, the eyesore actually became a deck focal point.All I had to buy was paint and hardware!
We didn't even know you could do half of these things!!
A few years ago, I decided to tackle our smaller bath and give it an updated look. Before my husband left town for the north woods (again), he removed the vanity and toilet for me. The hubster likes to leave me alone when I have a project in the works. This tends to work really well for us, lol.
