My Ever Changing House

When Nick and I first got married, I had no idea how handy he was. Since we moved into our home two years ago, he has taken on many projects.



He has learned how to hang fans and light fixtures. A few months ago, I posted about how he was going to take on replacing our interior doors. To turn them from this...



to this...



He has now finished this project. He also has learned how to install laminate flooring. He turned our "office" from this...



to this...



This past weekend, he took on another new project. Tiling my bathroom. It had linoleum in it. It was a very light color and when we moved in, the finish was already coming off. Since we've lived here and I've gotten ready in this bathroom everyday and used hairspray, the finish had all come off! It was sticky, sticky, sticky. What was worse, it wouldn't clean. If you tried to sweep up hair, the bristles on the broom would come off and stick to the floor. You couldn't mop or scrub. It looked dirty all the time. I tried many times getting on my hands and knees and cleaning it, but the grime wouldn't budge. So, this weekend, Nick took my bathroom from this...



to this...





Obviously, I painted the first few weeks we lived here, the trim is still not one, and my rugs and basket for towels are not in there yet, but it's finished! I absolutely can't wait to begin using it. Tomorrow, it will be all back tomorrow because the grout has to dry overnight tonight, but it's finished!

I'm so proud of my little handy man!!!

Now our next project is to turn this...



into a nursery! Oh, where to begin?!!!

Your house is so adorable audra. I know the nursery will be fantastic. I loved decorating our nursery:) We are fixing to redecorate Olivia's bedroom into a big girl room. I am so excited. After seeing the end results in some of your pics, you are giving me hope. We are starting to remodel in the next month. I'm dreading it, but ready for that end result:)
