Back in August Tony and his dad put in a bathtub in our master bathroom since when we moved in we didn’t have one and well, this girl just really likes to soak in the tub…. especially in the winter.
Due to indecision on my part it took us a while to select a tile for the backsplash and then we were super busy with kids and holidays to get it installed. But Tony finally had a day free to work on it. He put Noah to work with him and they got it done!
I love it and I think it looks great!
We have been slowly painting and working on projects since buying this house in April. Our current focus is on the master bathroom. The current vanity is only a single sink with cabinet with the remaining space left open.
I don’t really need a space to sit to get ready each day and what we really need was more storage than these two tiny drawers and one cabinet can supply, so I added the ugly plastic drawers as a temporary solution. So I decided the space over our toilet would be the perfect place to put up some shelves. Continue reading
We have never had trouble with our dog and ticks until we moved to the country. During June we were regularly finding a tick a sweet Shakey every few days. I researched to find out some oils that might be helpful in warding off ticks and bugs.
Orange, Citronella, Cedarwood, Clove (not in the picture), Purification, Lavender all appeared to be good choices for various bugs. Continue reading
I’ve been using Pinterest quite a bit to get ideas for Zeke and Essie for school. I kept seeing cute flannel board ideas and I decided to give it a try!
So I purchased some flannel and a project board, gathered my scissors and glue gun and set to work.
So the board is made and I needed some figures to put on it. I cheated for my first attempt and purchased printed t-shirt transfer iron-on sheets. On these I printed the characters from Daniel Tiger, then ironed them on to the flannel.
I’ll just say, Essie LOVED them! Especially Trolley!
Granna spent a lot of time with Little Mama trying to keep her occupied so I could help with the work.
This hallway was a booger. A threshold to the kitchen, doorway to a closet, doorway to the powder room and stairs to go around. Poor Poppa literally spent all day on this hallway. Tony and I put down the entire dining room (aka school room) while he had to make dozens of special cuts for this hallway.
I haven’t gotten our room totally cleaned up…there is still a bookshelf that needs to be moved so there are books everywhere, but it looks great, too!
However, if you are thinking of doing this on your own, it is a LOT of work. You need special tools and it makes a big mess. Doing 3 rooms and the hallway took us all of 3 days and we started some prep work, like removing tile and carpet beforehand.
