DIY CLOSET BUILTINS : PART 2

Last week I took a break from blogging because while I worked a TON on projects, I was split between a couple of different ones and felt like there wasn't quite enough progress anywhere to merit a full post.

FROM DRAB TO FAB : GERMAN SCHMEAR STONE FIREPLACE

Almost 2 years ago, I completely redid the fireplace in our house. One of the best decisions I made with that fireplace was adding thin brick and then using a fun technique called German schmear (thank you Joanna Gaines!!!) to give it new life.

UPDATING OUR BUILDER’S GRADE VANITY

Let's talk vanities for a hot sec. Why are they so expensive? Okay, actually I get why they're so expensive. The base is pretty simple - it's a box with some doors and drawers but when you add on the fact that it needs a countertop and a sink, the price tag makes more sense. … Continue reading UPDATING OUR BUILDER’S GRADE VANITY

MASTER BEDROOM, THE REVEAL : ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 6
