Master Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Hello everyone!

I'm finally ready to share my master bathroom makeover with you!  It took about 2 1/2 weeks to complete but we're so happy with the results.  I am glad it's finally done because it was noisy, dusty, smelly and messy to get it done!  It took many trips to Floor and Decor and Home Depot to get it accomplished.  We hired someone to do the work and also a plumber to handle the tub hook-up since our plumbing was done over 21 years ago and it was built into the tub itself!  Can you say ca-razy??

So, here it is.

Old World Lighting

Hello everyone!

The weekend sure did fly by.  I can't believe it's already Monday!  I'm still working on my master bathroom post to share with you, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some new lights that I hung in my house. 

 If you don't know this already, I'm a HUGE lighting lover!  I feel it is one of the most important style makers in your house.  Cheap looking lighting can ruin your whole house.  It sets the tone for the rooms and is one of the first things people see when they walk into your home.  I love how lighting can change the mood of a room at night based on where you place it and the wattage of the light bulbs being used. 

I decided to change out the light fixture in my front sitting room.  I wanted something a bit more substantial and I wanted it more in keeping with the other changes that I've made in my home lately. So, I found this light fixture being offered from Decor Steals.  I checked the measurements of it and decided it should work.

Master Bedroom Makeover Reveal

Hello everyone!

I guess I'm on a "bedroom" kick this week. Thanks for all the sweet comments about my Spring guestroom last Monday.  It was a lot of fun being part of a Spring blog tour.

  I have made several changes to my master bedroom lately and I wanted to share them with you.  

I changed my bedding first.  I still  have white bedding but this time it's a different kind altogether.  Since I have a foot board on my bed, it's always a challenge to make up my bed .  It's hard to fit my hands in between the mattress and the foot board to tuck in the sheets.  So, when I discovered Beddy's Beds I decided to give it a try.  To learn more about them, click HERE.

Hall Bathroom Makeover

Hello everyone!

I'm happy to report that the bathroom makeovers are finished with the exception of paint!  I thought I would share our hall bathroom with you since all we have left to do in there is repaint the cabinets in the same color.  That will take care of some areas of paint that have worn off through the years.  

We had new flooring installed in here.  It's a black and white basket weave tile.

More Bathroom Progress

Hello everyone!

Hopefully, this is my last week for bathroom renovation.  Our master bathroom is almost complete and the hall bath flooring has already begun.  

Here is where we are so far.

The glass shower enclosure went up after the tile was grouted in. That alone made a huge difference!

Master Bathroom Renovation Progress

Hello everyone!

I  just realized that I haven't shared with you all of the renovation progress we have made in our bathroom yet!  It has been going on for 7 days now.  We hired a good friend and former neighbor to do the work since this is how he makes a living.  He has already done some work for us in the past too.  

We recently had granite counters and under mount sinks installed.  Then we replaced our unframed mirrors with framed ones. We also replaced a hanging light fixture with a petite french style chandelier. But we still weren't satisfied with the results.  It was like putting lipstick on a pig.  Ha!  So, we bought new flooring materials and tile for the shower and bead board for the tub surround.  Now, the work has begun to replace all of that.  

It all started out like this.

Kitchen Makeover Reveal

Hello everyone!

We recently had our counters and sink replaced in our kitchen.  We needed to replace the sink since it was ruined by me cleaning it with an abrasive cleaner and I wasn't supposed to use that.  I thought the sink could be cleaned just like the one I had before it.  Nope!  Bad idea!  After calling around to get quotes on refinishing the sink, I realized it would be unreasonable to spend hundreds of dollars just to refinish an inexpensive sink.  We couldn't replace it since it was an odd shape and our granite counters were cut to fit it precisely.  So, that was our dilemma.  I decided to replace the dark brown granite with light colored quartz and get a new stainless steel sink (in a standard shape).  I was afraid of getting another white sink after all the problems we had with our last one!  I also had them extend the breakfast bar out further since it was too narrow before.  So, getting new counters and sink solved a lot of problems for us.  

Here is what it looks like now.
