Tiny Guest Bathroom Gets Character
I wanted something eye-catching for our tiny guest bathroom. I brightened it up with pale gray paint and bright white trim, some stenciling, and accessories.

I didn’t care for the marbled gray look of the builder grade ceramic tile in this guest bathroom so I painted it.I previously painted my laundry room floor a year ago so I decided it was time to do this floor too.I wanted something different so I went with the gold and it just made the room. Now I love it!

I had a budget of $200 to makeover a tiny 20 ft2 bathroom - it was very plain, plus it had a very dated, off-centered light fixture that needed to be addressed. I didn't want to spend much time on this makeover, so I opted to keep the neutral color palette so I wouldn't have to paint and here's the updates I chose to do:Add a contemporary tile backsplash above the sink area and change the mirrorUpgrade the lighting fixtureAdd a DIY storage cabinet above the toilet
When we remodeled our main bathroom, storage was at the top of our need/want list. We decided to pack extra storage into every nook and cranny in this bathroom. The old bathroom pre-remodel had 96 inches of countertop with two sinks and eight doors underneath. Who needs 96 INCHES of countertop? And the storage underneath was a nightmare to organize - Not practical. We decided that drawers were what we needed in the new bath. We searched high and low for bath vanities with drawers. Most offer two drawers, but a fake top drawer and the bottom drawer is cut out around the plumbing so you don't even get a full drawer. We kept coming back to the IKEA Rattviken vanity. It had two full drawers that were lined and compartmentalized. And the price with countertop was only $409 each. We updated and customized the vanities with this Young House Love campaign hardware available at Home Depot. We added a vintage secretary piece of furniture in between the vanities and it added storage for guest towels on top, a pull down countertop for the times you need additional counter space and THREE MORE DRAWERS. We painted it Sherwin Williams Intellectual Gray and highlighted with gold. We also opted for wall mounted medicine cabinets with a beveled edge for even more storage for toothbrushes and other items that are used daily. The walls were stenciled with Modern Masters Matte Metallic in Brass and Oyster. The stencil is Rockin Roses from Royal Design Studio.
Living with an outdated or boring bathroom? All of our guests used the main floor bathroom when we had company over, but it was devastatingly ugly. I was in desperate need of a refresh to showcase my style and breath new life into this small bathroom on a budget... And for under $55, you can too!
This started out as a new sink with cabinrt upgrade....The wifey brought home a new 48" sink and cabinet on clearance at Lowes and as we went to install it when we realizeed that it was to wide for the door to close, so we moved the door frame over 4 inches amd hence became a major remodel... Walls had to be removed and new header installed and then ripped out the flooring, replaced the built in medicine cabinet and rewired the wiring for the lighting. But the final project was still under $2000.00 and the look is exquisite.
For such a tiny room, this really gave me a run for my money. Finally, I am thrilled to share the Powder Room Makeover Reveal. If you have been following me for a while, you know I like clean classic lines and decor. A bit Traditional and a bit Contemporary. I wanted to keep this makeover really budget-friendly, I set a budget of $50.00 and spent $50.78. So I call this staying in budget.I love how this room turned out.
Grab a couple of bags of milk paint and completely transform your bathroom from dark and dreary to light and airy.
ETA: I've received LOTS of concern about how sanitary this application would be behind a toilet. Its not for everyone. Its just the two of us in our home and neither one of us is a messy bathroom goer, so we have zero problems with it. I just use my vacuum hose to "dust" it occasionally. :)ETA: This application IS NOT for high humidity spaces. I recommend using a wood look tile for those areas.I've wanted to do this project for a very long time now and for Valentine's Day this year, this was my present from my Honey! He's the bestest!

In our pool house bathroom, the floor tiles were bland and dated with dirty grout. Since I have never done this before, I wanted to experiment on a bathroom floor that wasn't a primary one - master bedroom, for example. Though a bit time consuming I am extremely happy with the results. To see more about our historic property, click here.
I see big hurricane vases all the time at the thrift store for super cheap but I am not a huge fan of the shape. I recently saw one that I really liked at Pottery Barn but it was $70! I set out to see if I could recreate this candle holder for less.
Here we go again, I am making over another thrift store find! This candle holder is one of those items I bought because it was only $1.00 and I knew someday I would do something with it! Well, someday was like YEARS later HAHA! I had kind of forgotten about it and I also wasn’t set on what I wanted to do with it, so it got pushed to the side. The other day I was organizing some of my craft stash and had it all piled and one thing sitting next to another and it all fell into place….I am not sure if that happens to you, but it does to me! All. The. Time! This came out better than anything I had envisioned for this candle holder! Come join me while for this thrifted candle holder makeover!
They must have been MASSIVELY mass produced. These lovely cut glass luncheon plates with matching cups were, at one time, the standard for serving “a light lunch” at baby showers, wedding showers, church meetings, bridge clubs and other hosted “Ladies who Lunch” events.
One of the things I disliked about our home is the red brick and red roof. Red is just not my thing. Especially since the brick is only on the front and doesn’t match the rest of the house. But I didn't know what to do...It hit me that I could paint it dark, creating a beautiful contrast.
The other day my mom gave me some Pothos stems that she had recently propagated. If you don’t know what propagating is, it’s when you grow new plants from an already established plant. This is done by cutting of one of the stems and placing it in a jar of water until it grows roots. Once the roots have sprouted you can then plant it and grow a whole new plant.This is such a cost effective way to fill your home with beautiful live plants, and is also a lovely way to share new plants with family and friends. Below I explain the steps that I used to plant and propagate my new Pothos stems.
I was browsing online the other day for new planters, and I came across this awesome one from Target. However, it was over $350 for a set of three! I couldn’t believe it. I also would never spend that much on planters. A few days go by, and I can’t stop thinking about how cute they were. So I set out to see if I could create a DIY two-tone planter myself.See how I created a similar version of this two-toned wicker planter using only a few supplies.

My mom got this hammock at Kroger few years ago! It was only used for a short while when she intially got it, then it sat in her yard, in the weather for years, and as things do, it deteriorated over time. I always thought it was such a cool hammock because the stand folds up for easy storage, and the hammock is supported by two chains so it’s much easier to sit in than the traditional hammocks that have a single chain to support each end! Follow along on how I gave this old gal a new life!
Guys, since forever I’ve wanted a potting bench! Some girls want diamonds… fancy clothing but not I (truthfully I won’t turn my nose up at that stuff – HA)! But, seriously I love to putter and create so much, give me some vintage misfits and a few tools and I’m very happy creating all the things! Like this potting bench, I simply LOVE the way it’s turned out – some (I won’t name names) thought I had lost my mind – and maybe I have a bit… haha! But – now it’s his favourite thing on the porch! Ain’t that the way?
This is an off the wall type project; but it's fun and unique! I have had this wood ladder for a while now. Originally, I painted it and added wood planks as shelves, to create a ladder shelf of sorts. Over the years, the ladder has just been sitting in a corner; but an idea came to me! Why not create a fun piece of decor that's different and not your typical "shelf."That's when I decided a hanging basket plant and some old suitcases could really help turn this old ladder into something fun!
