Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Hi friends!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts.  Baby #2 has yet to make his or her arrival, so David, Evie and I are filling the waiting period with as much family quality time as possible.  We’ve had a lot of fun exploring local attractions (like the Richmond Zoo, cute!) and restaurants (bring on...
Kids Bathroom Update :)

Kids Bathroom Update :)

We are in preparation for Baby #2 (although let’s be honest, poor second babies don’t get nearly the attention of first babies, even in utero) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share how the kids’ bathroom is coming along! First of all– we have a cool new heated floor installed.  Just like...
Finished Master Bathroom.

Finished Master Bathroom.

Allow me to finally share with you a long-overdue post: the FINISHED BATHROOM! We have had this wrapped up for a while now but I just never seem to find the time to write a blog post.  Sorry for the delay, but better late than never? To remind you what the old bathroom was like:...
Tiling the Master Bathroom

Tiling the Master Bathroom

We have more progress to share with our renovations! David and I opted to install heated floors in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroom for the rest of our lives, might as well make it...
Carving Out the Kids' Bathroom

Carving Out the Kids’ Bathroom

In addition to making walls in the master bathroom, the crew has made a lot of progress in a new bathroom we’re tucking in the back corner of the house across from Evie’s room. The idea behind the architectural drawings is that one day we’re going to build an addition coming off the right side...

Creating a Master Bathroom

More renovation updates!!  Now I get to share how the master bathroom is coming together.   Just to remind you, below are the plans the architect drew up, and here is a link to my personal inspiration for what I want it to look like. So below is a picture taken from when you first enter...
Tub Backsplash Tile: Check.

Tub Backsplash Tile: Check.

    Here’s a recap of what’s been happening in the bathroom recently! Below you can see the walls are up and the tub is too–   Let the tiling commence!     After a few days, the contractor’s crew had the tiles all affixed to the wall with the little spacers. Looking good at...
Backsplash for Tub Area

Backsplash for Tub Area

I spent way too many hours over the past few weeks looking at Houzz, Pinterest, Google Images, and so on for ideas on how to design the tile surrounding the tub/ shower area.  I stopped at numerous home places in Charlottesville and most of the time was just shocked by the expense of the tiles...
Bathroom Tub

Bathroom Tub

I scoured the internet for a while before finding this tub from Lowe’s for less than $300– brand new, narrow (only 29″ wide as opposed to the usual 30″ or 32″), and a drain on the right hand side.  The drain could have just as easily been on the left but I wanted it on...
Bathroom Innards

Bathroom Innards

  Things are happening in the bathroom!  Check out our fancy new insulation!         Below you can see the doorway to the master bedroom has been closed off– no going back now!     The old pipes are totally out and the new pipes are in!     I decided I wanted...
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here are some pics of our master bathroom as it’s being converted to a guest bathroom! Above is a pic of our contractor Lucio working to carefully remove the old drywall from the old beams supporting the old chimney.  This was actually pretty tricky demolition because of the age of the drywall/ chimney and a...
Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

The current layout upstairs has been the subject of much speculation since we moved in.  Long story short, the master bathroom was awkwardly designed and not the kind of bathroom I wanted for the rest of my life. Here are some pics of the master bathwhen we moved in: Once we started tearing things apart...
