Remodelaholic in Review: September 2015

Fall is in full swing, and while the weather is still finding it’s perfect fall balance here in UT (some days still lingering in the ‘too hot for fall’ category), we hear that it has cooled off in other states! September went by quickly for us, trying to get back into a routine, with school in session and extracurricular activities starting again. October is going to be a fun month as we continue to celebrate fall but also prepare for and enjoy the excitement of Halloween! Our team thinks it is so fun to celebrate the holidays with you while discussing decorations or helping you prepare your home for its next gathering. We love discussions and always take questions here or over on Facebook, please come engage with us!

Get your DIY on with these great projects! Build a desk, revamp a light fixture, make your own bench, plus beautiful room makeovers and more!

Our team has been busy finding perfect colors schemes, awesome DIY projects for your home, and festive fall and Halloween decorations. I have been busy with our home remodel and shared some before and after photos of our nearly finished kitchen! I love sharing our home updates and discussing them with you! I love seeing your updates too! So please share away, so we can all see!


We also compiled some reviews on beautiful DIY countertops and DIY refinished painted cabinet reviews that are helpful to those embarking on a DIY home upgrade or makeover! (click on each photo to go to each post and read the real-life reviews from DIYers and bloggers)

Lorene has been behind the scenes here at Remodelaholic for more than a decade! She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.
