For the Kitchen:




We definitely want to paint the trim a crisp white, but should we attempt to do this on our own? We’re definitely DIY-willing, but for something this major, maybe an expert would be best? And it would involve buying a heavy duty paint sprayer for the doors and cabinets…. 

Want: White for the trim and kitchen cabinets and subtle grey for the family room and living room built-ins.  And given floors in the kitchen and dining room are already a tan oak, we’d love to replace the carpet in the rest of the main floor rooms, with the same beauty!  The oak looks better then I thought  with white trim.

Master Bathroom Ideas

The Current State:



– Paint all trim white (and possibly the entire house….)

– I actually like the color, but maybe repaint to white (crisp and clean bathroom is appealing)

– Paint vanity grey

– New vanity mirror (hoping to find one at TJMax for a steal) or frame existing mirror with some crown molding

– New bathroom hardware, including eco friendly shower head

– Add big rug to cover up the (ugly) tile and add hooks for towels

– Replace old doors with shower rod and curtain?

– The closet is IN the bathroom (not sure how I feel about that and def don’t want soggy clothes) and the current doors are on their last legs. Maybe a fresh coat of paint, some WD-40, and some mirrors?

– Touches of wood and a pink flower 🙂
