more house projects.

Hey Blogspots.

I realize that I haven't posted in about a month, I'll bet you have been just dying wondering what I've been doing with my life!  Actually, a lot, but more about that in my next post.

For now, I just thought I would post some more house pics to update all y'all who haven't seen the house in awhile.  We were busy little bees in September. 
Add hand-me-down medicine cabinet, add electrical box & light fixture...
Voila!  A place to look at yaself and hide ya medicinals.      
Step 1: Cut a hole in the box the 1x4s to size
Steps 2 & 3: Sand & Stain the cut pieces (or get your friends to)
Step 4: Poly, sand, poly again

Inside of Josh's room completed!
Bulletin Board transformed into jewelry hanger.
My closet.  Josh installed wooden dowel rods, Tim added the shelf
Josh's mini-shelves made from the leavins of bamboo flooring
A place to hang stuff.
A place to hang shiny metal stuff.
Shelves in the laundry room!
A place to hang our collection of brooms and mops.
Believe it or not, we are still working on the dang trim.  When you start from scratch and cut, sand, stain, and poly each little piece, you realize just how much trim there is in your house.  Look around.  It's everywhere.  Anyway, although using raw 1x4s is a lot more work than just buying finished "trim" with the smooth rounded or beveled edges, it is less than half the price!  I also love how substantial and rustic it looks in our little home.

More on life beyond house renovations coming up...

  1. I love that there is random little picture of us. I think I lost that one in a move but it is a good one.
