After moving in, again, I needed to repaint and redesign. The space we're in is small. Just over 900sf. And, it's a mobile home. So there's only so much I can do.
So far, Nick removed a wall. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It was the only wall that didn't have furniture on it. I was thinking a faux mantle would look awesome there! At Christmas I had the tree there. (Post on the tree coming up) But..it's gone now (the wall AND the tree! haha!). Not sure I like being able to have a clear view of the kitchen. I mean who wants to look at the sink full of dishes? I guess this way it keeps me from having a messy kitchen!
Tearing out the drywall
One side off!
Out with the frame
It's gone! I need a better picture of the completed project...picture showing kitchen soon!
The Laundry Room
I'm sure ya'll have seen those AWESOME pictures of Sausha's pedestals and her AMAZING laundry room! They're all over Pinterest! My husband wasn't impressed. It meant more work for him! He hates Pinterest! LOL !!
Anyhoo..here's his version....
We started (and when I say we, I totally mean Hub and the boys!!) by moving out the washer and dryer and measuring up the space.
Built the platform with 2x4's.
We made it high enough to fit the dog crates underneath, and the catbox.
Much to the chagrin of the dogs. LOL!
Topped it with plywood
Washer and Dryer installed!
Voila! Done and done!
Well...almost. It needs some sort of facing, and Nick wants to tile the plywood.
I also have ideas for building a shelf above the washer/dryer. Something that will keep things from migrating to the back and falling off behind. Plus it'll keep things closer at hand. I'm kinda short!
Project #2 nearly complete!!
New Light Fixture
I don't have a before picture of what used to be there but suffice it to say, it was ugly.
I was at the local Goodwill on a whim. Okay, okay! It's a minor obsession! And while perusing the aisles I came across this
Pretty fugly right?!
Well, I hemmed and hawed. I stared at it and finally called my daughter. Texted her a picture and asked what she thought..should I?
I paid $12.99 for this monstrosity.
Brought it home and sprayed it with Valspar's Tropical Oasis.
I think it took three coats. And there's still a few spots that could use a touch up. It was actually freezing outside and breezy. I was spraying it on the back porch.
Now here it is in all it's new found glory!
I know..need a better picture..but, you get the idea!
So, that's it for now. Lots more to come!!
Kitchen is getting overhauled!
Bedrooms are getting beadboard and paint!
Bathrooms are getting beadboard, paint and custom built in cabinets!
