We are rounding the corner toward having our home finished and ready to put on the market. Of course, now that we have everything done the way that we want it, we are feeling like we really don't want to move. If only this house had a few hundred more square feet... on the other hand, less square footage is less to clean, right?
Not being the handiest of families, we once again, invited our favorite handyman over to do a few improvements. By the way, let me know if you want his name and number...he does excellent work and is very reasonably priced. We had Jim tile the walls around our garden tub. Love the glass tiles, don't you? We also replaced all of the cheap-o aluminum blinds in the whole house with wooden ones. In my opinion that little thing is a deal breaker in a potential house.
I got this idea to frame up our bathroom mirrors, instead of buying new ones (pricey!!) or buying an online kit (again..rather pricey!) We used pre-painted regular ole' molding. Jim measured, cut, and adhered it to the mirrors using gorilla glue! Then he actually screwed the frames to the wall. I painted the screws with white paint. We did this in all of the bathrooms and I couldn't be happier with the results!
Lastly, i finally got some pictures up on my blank navy wall in the kitchen. The middle frame is the many faces of Grace, eating an Oreo Cookie. So cute.
So there you go. We are currently mulling over finishing the several hundred square feet attic over our garage. It could be a fun space. And Conrad is tempting me by saying I could use it as my "Craft Room" Although I'm thinking more realistically it would turn into a Man Cave or Play Room. Our only issue is what to do with all of the stuff that is up there now? It's all just too much to think about for now...another day perhaps!
