I Bought The Farm (2)

My half bathroom was white, builder bland and boring. I wanted to do something old timey to honor the porcelain pieces that my Grandmother painted and a place put some old family photographs but with a bit of a modern twist because I’m not completely an old fashioned girl. The trapeze mirror, shelf, toilet paper holder, and towel ring are all Umbra that I got on sale and each a different store. It’s like the universe wanted this bathroom design to come together!

I want to stress the point that imported RTA cabinets have been a huge success in recent years. They have placed the power of cost control in the hands of the DIY homeowner and the quality and options seem to get better every year. They fill a special place in the price spectrum for many Americans and in these tough times, this is a good thing. Thank you so much for sharing this information on how to get a shower door installed. Right now we have a frameless shower door in toronto so we definitely could use some help installing it properly. Thank you for your help!

Quick Permits may be applied for by email. See /QuickPermits For same day service, sign in online or at the kiosk once for two Quick Permits at a time. For the windows in small bathrooms, use simple, sleek window treatments. Large ruffled curtains like Priscillas take up far too much space. Instead, use simple blinds or a fabric shade in a light color. Allowing in natural sunlight will also help the appearance of a small bathroom.

in the past, refacing cabinetry was something you would only hire a professional to do. However, with advances in technology as well as a ready supply of materials (such as doors, veneers, trim, adhesive and tools), many homeowners are tackling this project themselves – and saving a bundle in the process. We placed the boards down and secured them to the subfloor using special screws just for Wonderboard. Then we went over the seams with mesh tape and more mortar.

Hello Rosemay – I love to watch those DIY shows rather than actually do all that work now! We have Design on a Dime and House Crashers and DIY Network etc.. I get tired just watching them work. LOL Thank you for looking at the photos and the changes that took place. Hope to see you over at the cafe soon. Let’s do lunch! Pinks and peaches are not very trendy right now as pale colors, but if you like them, go for it – they can feel very warm and comforting. Great with purples, reds, browns and greens as accessory colors. My hubs was not about to tear out our beautiful sheetrock, so I was left to find a tub that would have to fit.
