We have lived with an embarrassingly ugly bathroom for eleven years so it was overdue for a remodel. I disliked our old dusty rose shower tile and matching cast iron tub so much that I didn’t take many photos of it. However, I did post our bathroom when we re-tiled the floor in 2011.

Someone of my stature can always use more length yet a maxi dress looks like I’m swimming in fabric *ie:a tent* Midi is in between your knees and your shins.

Umm, okay Ikea is famous for their… Continue reading Our Kitchen Remodel Part Two

We did go over budget a tad, but… Continue reading Happy Happy, Joy Joy!
Boo, yesterday was my last night with my beautiful unfinished kitchen floors. This morning they will be sanded and stained a darker color. Just how dark we’ll go, we’re not sure yet.
