Dresser to Bookcase Furniture Remodel contributed by Freddy And Petunia This was the instigating dresser! Parts of her were rough and needed repair, especially a back leg. But in the repairs, I learned how it was originally made, and can recreate parts of the design for Freddy & Petunia– –serendipity!? I found this […]
Today I wanted to highlight my dad’s guest bathroom remodel. He did a terrific job with this project. He was very conscious about cost and reusing what he had to make the project a success. He did the bulk of the work and while we were in town we helped do all the painting and trim work to finish […]
This room was by far the fastest project that we ever did. It is funny how after 3 years of remodeling a house, you actually learn how to do things quickly and efficiently, that and at this point we had all the tools that really made things simple. When we first walked through the house we didn’t […]
Here is the before and after for the half bath. See the full explanatory post here. Before: After:
One of my all time favorite accomplishments for the Logan house was adding a half bath. When we bought the house, it had only one bathroom and four bedrooms. Which is just not acceptable, and the other problem was that the inhabitants of the upstairs rooms would have to come all the way downstairs to use the […]
Okay, so this post isn’t really about laundry, it is about our laundry room / pantry. Technically I LOVE my launtry (laundry-pantry hybrid name..) room. If I were to design it, I am sure it would be a little different, and include room for my freezer, a sink, a sewing nook and a foot […]
Here is the lower hall’s before and after. If you want to see the whole explanation click here. Before: After: Oh, it looked so clean and fresh! I wish we had taken more pictures! What do you think?
It has been a few weeks but do you remember the first part of the stair remodel, check it out here the whole process or the before and after. Well, I am finally getting around to the second half. Valentine’s week has kept me totally busy! But back to the remodeling… These pictures are a […]
We were asked recently how we built our master bathroom vanity from the Downing house, pictured below: I have to admit this is one of my favorite projects ever, and I regretted selling this house mostly because of leaving this bathroom behind. One of the best features, in my mind, was that we raised the […]
This post will have to be a two part story, sorry about that, there is just too much information to get it all down at once. It will have to be the upstairs portion and then later the downstairs, which is actually how we did the work, so I guess that seems logical. By far […]
Our master bedroom remodel never seemed to end. It was a continuing project. We cleaned it out, then cleaned it up, finished and then started again, re-installed a closet and finally finishing for good. That sounds all short and sweet, but it happened for about 3 years. I will explain as I go. Before: (you can see the […]
I know I usually put the explanatory post up first, but I haven’t quite finished it yet. The whole post will be up by 1:00 pm at the latest today, definitely come back and check out the HUGE bedroom remodel!! To wet your appetite, and entice you to come back, here is the before and after […]
Here is the recap of the before and after in the Logan house Living Room. Before: The rest of the living room’s story. If you would like to see more check out our Retro Remodel Series.
Welcome Back to our Retro Remodel Series. This is the story of our first house remodel, while we were in college (FYI for new comers). Surprisingly, we did the very least in the living room of the Logan house. It was in decent shape (shrug)… while other things were AWFUL. We tried over time to do little […]
I want to start posting just a quick before and after post, for those not interested in the background story. So here it is: Before: After: Link to details of project.
