Project of the Month

We are finally finishing the garage, what was going to be the first project in this house.

Friday, August 20, 2010

     Unfortunately I only have after shots of this one! It would have been so worthwhile to have befores because the change was so dramatic. However, this is all I have. We finally finished the bathroom. After much hard work of pulling out concrete and ripping up an already peeling floor of parkay flooring, we remodeled the shower and tiled the floor. What an accomplishment! Lots of work from the boys and Steve and I in tearing it out. This house sure wasn't built cheap!
Everything around here ends up being more work than we bargained for. The one thing that is sure, is that when we finish redoing it, the reward is incredible and the results are definately incredible.  This house is definately becoming our own!

Closet Reorginization


My mother came and while she was here, organized my vaccum/scrapbooking/craft & sewing closet. It didn't stay nice as long as I'de hoped although the basic organization was still intact. I then realized that the solution was in making more shelves so that I wasn't stacking things on top of each other and which also allow easier access to what I needed. So, that's when this project became serious. I got busy and added more shelves using plywood and 2X2s we already had in the garage. It was actually rather fun, no cost, and the results were so rewarding in the end! It's so much easier to keep things in their places now.I love when I can apply my energies to things so worthwhile!


Amazing what adding a few shelves and organizers will do, isn't it? I have so much floor space. It's wonderful! Now, time for a new ironing board cover, wouldn't you say?! Happy Organizing!
