• Finished Bathroom Before and After

    We are finally done updating our bathroom.  We spent a lot of time and worked really hard to fix this bathroom.  Everything except the shower was done.  We started by peeling all of the paint off the walls, that alone tool forever!  The owners before us had painted the walls with oil based paint that nothing would stick to. We then removed the toilet and plastic flooring.  We tiled, made a whole new cabinet, Grant made the concrete counter top, put in a new light fixture, moved the electric switch, new mirror and frame, and new toilet. This took a long time, but it turned out great. Before pictures  …

  • Bathroom

    Have you ever thought of a project that you want to do for a long time?  Then suddenly one day you just decide I have to do this.  Well our upstairs bathroom is a disaster area.   From afar you might think its not that bad but when you look up close its definately not good!  The bathroom was originally painted with oil paint.  The last people who lived here painted over that with normal paint and of course that did not adhere right so it was pealing.  The other day when I was in there I pulled on the paint and it came off in a giant sheet!  So I…

  • Rocking Chair

    Months ago I bought a rocking chair for Emmett at a swap meet that I was planning on re doing.  Then at least a month ago I bought the material to cover the chair, and then as most projects go I did nothing.  I had too many art projects going on so the chair went to the end of the list.  About a week before Christmas I finished all of my art I had to do so I pulled out my sewing machine. Before:  After:  I really like the way it turned out, I did away with the ruffle but I left the wood alone.  I didn’t want to invest…
