Scrap Wood Wall Vase

How to make a DIY wall vase out of scrap wood!

In our master bedroom there were these two areas of wall on either side of the entrance to our bathroom that have always felt really bare. They definitely needed something, but I could never figure out what. I love doing pictures in black frames, but I already had a set of those over the bed, so that wouldn’t work. I thought about mirrors, but I felt that whatever I put on either side had to […]

Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 3, The Reveal

How to prep and tile your bathroom floors using either small scale mosaic sheets or large scale 12x24 tiles!

Time for the fun part…the afters! It feels weird to post these because I have been living with these floors for almost six months now, so it doesn’t really seem all that special to me anymore. But seeing the before photos really puts it into perspective, so let’s look at those again real quick. Let’s start with the master bathroom and closet befores: Whoa, those are the WAY befores of the closet, before I did […]

Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 2, The Install

How to prep and tile your bathroom floors using either small scale mosaic sheets or large scale 12x24 tiles!

Now that all the prep was out of the way, it was finally time to start laying down tile! As you’ve probably heard before if you’ve ever watched any HGTV or DIY Network, it’s important when tiling not to tile yourself in a corner, as you shouldn’t walk on your freshly laid tile for at least 24 hours. This would be easy in the two smaller bathrooms and laundry room, where I knew I could […]

Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 1, The Prep

Finally, a post about how I tiled three bathrooms and the laundry room in our home! This took a long time, because I am a bit crazy…anxious technically…so every time I went to write the post I got overwhelmed and/or bored and just exited right on out. I’m convinced I would be a better blogger if I bought a laptop and could blog in bed while binge watching The Royals butttt…my husband is not so convinced. […]

Cheap and Simple DIY Christmas Ornaments

How to make simple and cheap DIY Christmas ornaments that you can customize to fit YOUR style and color scheme!

This is actually a project I did last Christmas, before I started my blog, but I love it so much I recreated the process so I could share here. If you are like me (i.e. crazy), then you might find that it is hard to find ornaments in the color scheme you are going for. Not to mention, ornaments themselves can be a little expensive, especially if you only like a few colors out of […]

DIY Tub Caddy

How to build your own DIY wooden bathtub caddy!

I’ve mentioned before that our master bathroom is pretty builder-basic. It’s got the standard tub and separate standing shower thing going on, and while I would LOVE to have an oversized, fully tiled walk-in shower, it’s just not in the budget now, nor is it something we plan to tackle in this house that we only plan to be in for a year or two more. What we have is new and clean and perfectly […]
