Boy’s Bathroom Refresh Complete!

Boy’s Bathroom Refresh Complete!

Just in the nick of time, the refresh of the boy’s bathroom is complete! I had to snap some quick pix at night while it still was all neat and tidy, we’ve got a guest coming tomorrow and it will probably never look this nice again! As a reminder, it looked like this before: And… Continue Reading

Repainting the Boy’s Bathroom

Yep, we’re taking on another home improvement project! This should be small, but it’s a little like giving a mouse a cookie: some drywall needed repair behind the toilet in the boys bathroom, and since the tan paint for this room doesn’t exist and I don’t like it anyway, why not change the wall color?… Continue Reading
