Remodelaholic in Review: September 2016

September officially welcomes Fall and Back to School is in full swing for everyone! We hope that everyone had a wonderful month welcoming Fall and making the adjustment of Back to School. It’s definitely bitter-sweet! We have so many fabulous and fun Fall projects and more rolling out all the time!

Remodelaholic In September 16 800x1200 1Cassity and Justin revealed their gorgeous Master Bedroom Remodel with us this month and I love it! I started brainstorming immeditely how I could get my bedroom to look like this! Thankfully, the put together a post on their remodel as well as a post on Bedroom Decor Ideas! Check them out and tell us what you love!




Justin created this amazing Modern Concrete and Redwood Bench (with Tutorial) for their backyard! Along with his brother in law  Curtis Frank Design and a bit of concrete, they were definitely inspired in the creation of this beautiful bench! 


Another new addition to their home is the new Kwikset Kevo 2nd Generation Smart Lock. Cassity says, “You can lock it with a traditional key, phone app, and the touch of a finger to the deadbolt with a Bluetooth-enabled key fob or with a smart phone in your pocket. Alohomora, it’s like magic.” Functional, convenient, and so classy looking!


Another great article this month covers How to Get Clean and Healthy Home with Your Kid’s Help! Advice that was desparately needed in my house! I must say I loved the tips; so simple and definitely doable! 


It’s never too late to help yourself survive the school year. With these 25 Back to School Ideas we hope to help your life run smoother, like a routine, rather than the constant chaos that so easily creep up on us!

Our first guest for the Pallets Aplenty week was Leanne, the Diva of DIY. She truly is so talented and I think you will see that just by looking at her finished pallet project: How to Make a Pallet Drink Station! It’s amazing the creativity some people have when they see pallets and an old sink! Brilliant!

Our next guest for our Pallets Aplenty week created this gorgeous Pallet Bench. Amy, aka One Artsy Mama, lives up to her name. How accomplished would you feel if you built this beautiful bench?
