If your water-damaged basement was finished with conventional building materials, you already know how poorly it performed. Drywall got soggy. Painted surfaces became stained. Wood paneling and trim became warped and moldy. Carpeting began to smell.
Instead of setting up a full-size ironing board in the laundry room, purchase a wall-mounted version that folds down and stores neatly away when not in use. This frees up valuable laundry room square footage. You can also find models that feature shelves to hold your iron and ironing supplies. Well, I think fresh paint is always the first step in nearly any remodel project, and it often makes the biggest difference.

Horse theme. Many little girls love horses, build her a horse theme bedroom. Horses on the walls. Rather than a doll house, a horse barn on the dresser with hay, a fence and a few plastic horses. A small hay bale in the corner. You included some really good advice. I will be following some of it as I redo my small bath. I especially love the cleaver under the sink storage.
Wow, I’m really impressed by your inexpensive bathroom makeover! I love the colors you chose and your ideas for using shower curtains for windows, etc. We rarely stay anywhere long enough to give it a makeover, but now I’ll know how to do it when the opportunity arises. Thanks! An old chandelier we rewired and cleaned up and hung in our bedroom. My aunt gave me the chandelier. She bought it at a yard sale years ago. She couldn’t find the crystals so I bought those off of eBay. My husband rewired for safety. I added the little shades.
