I keep forgetting to get pictures of my little "Bob Vila Set-up" in the yard. I have my 2 little plastic sawhorses (with 2 circular saw lines in them (kanye shrug) and my collection of various saws (circular, dremel, miter, reciprocating) 2 tape measures, 6 pencils and pens (I keep losing track of them), goggles and mask
All spread out in front of my storage building. I even have a light for when it gets dark.
the men of the house "assist" and often complete their own projects for me, but I'm usually out there measuring and sawing away .... Yep, they refuse to let me outdo them. hahahaha
They like the Toys :)
they've even stopped complaining about my projects.
Back to the Re-Reno
Lots of little painting left to do (trim and wall)
|What's an AFTER without a little BEFORE ?|
|I looove having my laundry in the Kitchen.|
|I "tried" turning the dining area into an extension of my Livingroom .... I've been trying for a loooong time to adjust this little box|
|I've got to grout this little tiled area|
|BEFORE (painted my knotty pine black)|
|What a difference removing those top cabinets made .... and don't you love my old dishwasher, circa 1960, 70, 80 something?|
|View into Kitchen from Master bedroom BEFORE I installed the tile in the doorway|
The Process ..
|I "attempted" a glass tile backsplash ... #Fail (I had nightmares about this) I chiseled this off Sunday afternoon! decided to go with beadboard all around, except sink|
|Removal of Countertops for Granite Installation (and former textured wallpaper backsplash)|
|close up of my hotwater heater (I live in a 1960's Ranch) common|
|Exxon and Amehr, my granite installers. They're brothers. Only 19 and 17|
|When I got home .... aaah|
I removed my Real Wood Cabinets. Don't do that, if you can help it. I should have just got New Doors!
