I am going to try and just stick to 2 major projects this year. Phase 1 of spare bath will include de-popcorning and maybe start on a couple walls. It will span a couple years most likely since it involves flooring (tile – Emser Sakai is the top choice).
Project number 2 is the fireplace surround that will also include new doors. The current set isn’t a good seal.
If I get a miter saw and nail gun, I can be a little more creative.
One more for the day –
This is my inspiration for my backyard. I wouldn’t do a patio roof that is completely covered though but I like the idea of having a deck extend the length of the house.
Inspiration for bath reno
Spare bath reno ideas.
I don’t think I’ll do EVERYTHING this fall/winter but it is giving me ideas. Here is the current look. And the Inspiration is from the current Ikea catalog. I want to do something modern to that spare bath.
I can definitely depopcorn and repaint the ceiling this year. That won’t take but a weekend. The paint swatches are there. I’m going for a bright green and white bathroom with brown accents. Not sure how much brown I’ll add to it but the offwhite is not going to be trim color. My initial idea is to half the bathroom so it is green up top and white on the bottom with just a little bit of brown paint maybe the area above the tub and possibly a stripe of brown too.
I’m leaning towards the bottom left (Spring Green) with Marcapone as the off white color. The brown is the same as the color in the spare room (Stone Brown) – all Benjamin Moore.
Of course the vanity and medicine cabinet will need to go. I just need to find what I’m looking for but this might take one or 2 season’s of work.
Final project for the weekend –
No more vertical blinds in the house whatsoever – YAY!
I didn’t mess this one up this time and it goes all the way down.
Weekend projects complete and achievement points unlocked.
Home Improvement Project – part deux
My pull chain light in my closet quit on me Monday and I didn’t have time to deal with it until the weekend.
I’d LOVE to have a regular switch light but that won’t be anytime soon. For now, it works.
Weekend Project #1 – (Friday)
For the spare room I did away with the vertical blinds.
I totally messed up and will be replacing said blinds eventually since they don’t go down all the way – I cut the strings too short. BUT for now, they work and give some more privacy AND allow the kittens to hang.
