It's amazing what a new coat of paint can do to update an old item...
I like the no logo look.
An old file box with chipped paint and bit of rust.
It looks new again with a coat of white paint.
Putting together Desmond's first piece of furniture.
The baby room is not ready yet, but it's a start.
Our first Christmas tree! We opted for a smaller tree to accommodate the lower ceiling in this part of the house. But we could've gotten away with a 7 footer.
Justin was very excited to string up the exterior lights. I think we are the only house on the block with lights. Maybe our holiday spirit will inspire more people to put up decorations in the neighborhood.
Ground floor back unit being painted. We chose a creamy off white paint to bring some warmth to the interior.
For the bathroom we chose a grayish blue, which turned out more green when it dried on the wall. There will be subway tiles and octagonal black and white tiles on the bathroom floor.
Our previous patio door has not been doing so well with the rain and improper installation by inexperienced carpenter.
Our new door is a lot more energy efficient and looks almost identical to the old door. The only problem is...
The different placement of the door handle blocking the top drawer from opening.
I fixed it temporarily but switching the deadbolt and handle placement.
The permanent solution is getting one of these low profile door handles...but color options are limited.
