Bathroom Renovation Update :: How to Install an Ikea Hemnes Sink

At the end of July I gave an update on our main bath renovation that included gray paint, a new shower curtain, and a grout refresh.  Next on our renovation list was replacing the pedestal sink with a vanity that would give us much needed storage.  We found a vanity locally that we loved but […]

Bathroom Update Sneak Peak

I’ve been hard at work on our main floor bathroom update and although the project isn’t complete, progress has been made.  If you missed the before pictures, click over to see the difference a new paint color makes in this room. I started plans for this update by selecting fabric for the shower curtain.  I […]

Updating Our Main Floor Bathroom :: Before Pictures

At the end of 2012 I made a list of home, yard, and fitness goals.  The yard goals have been checked off of the list, the fitness goals are an ongoing process, and not one home goal has been met.  I’d better get busy because 2013 is half way over! One home goal is to […]

Vintage Art for the Guest Bathroom

Being off from school has given me time to finish projects that I’ve been slowly working on all spring, one of which is art for our guest bathroom.  A vintage frame found during one of my April dumpster dives perfectly fit a torn but very pretty print also found in the dumpster. A but of […]

Guest Bathroom Reveal :: 1980’s to 2013

Almost a year ago we began renovations on our guest bathroom and finally the project is complete.  I’m excited to share this room with you and also excited to host overnight guests. Our guest bathroom had been updated by the previous owner in the 1980’s with new wall tile and a new vinyl floor.   Both […]

Bathroom Renovation :: Part Seven

Let’s just say that Mr. SP and I aren’t quick DIYers.  We started renovating our upstairs bathroom in January, it’s now August, and we are still working on the project.  My last update was in March and a bit of progress has been made since then. Here are the links to my previous posts if […]

How to Refresh Grout

Several years ago Mr. SP replaced the flooring in our bathroom with tile.  We’ve been very happy with the tile but don’t like that the white grout that we used won’t stay white. Over the winter Mr. SP noticed a product at Lowe’s called “Grout Refresh” and wondered if it might work on our not-so-white […]

Bathroom Renovation :: Part Six

A lot of progress was made this week in the bathroom.  The plumber came on Tuesday to finish his work which included installing a one handled faucet to replace our old two handled one and replacing the shower head.  On Friday we had the bathtub resurfaced.  The old paint was removed and it now looks better […]

Bathroom Renovation :: Part Five

This weekend we both had a lot of time to devote to our bathroom renovation project.  I was able to complete the window curtain with the exception of needing to buy five rings to sew to the top.  Instead of using a rod, this curtain will hang from three Pate Meadows knobs. The knobs will […]

Bathroom Renovation :: Part Four

Our bathroom renovation project continues, weekend-warrior style.  After a very hard and busy week at work, Mr. SP worked himself silly on Saturday to complete the wall tile.   I think it looks quite nice and am so impressed by the job that Mr. SP is doing. Here he is marking a tile to fit […]
