Tuesday Tidbits

Another week and So. Much. Progress. for this Tuesday Tidbits post! I’ll just get right into it, because there is a lot this week. The upstairs guest suite has everything done except the shower glass install (leaned up against the wall) and carpet. Otherwise it is done! All touch-ups, lights, etc! Funny story about the

Tuesday Tidbits Part 2

**If the house stuff is your only interest, keep scrolling down!** This Part 2 of Tuesday Tidbits is to fill you in on some personal stuff as well as house stuff. We have some busy days surrounding us right now…exciting but busy. Many of you have asked about the New York City Marathon that I

Tuesday Tidbits Part 1

We have so many updates this week that I am doing a two part Tuesday Tidbits. The second portion will be tomorrow (on Wednesday) …obviously not being on a Tuesday…but there is just too much! So, let’s get down to business: I have spent every spare minute of each day scraping, sanding, priming and painting

Tuesday Tidbits

This week has been another busy one! We are into the mostly fun phase of installing lots of finishing touches. (It’s not all fun, but the results are fun!) At the very least, it makes for an enjoyable Tuesday Tidbits. We did get our bedside lights installed in the master bedroom this week. We spaced

AHHHH….it has been another busy and productive week at our house! Lots of pics for this Tuesday Tidbits post to show some of our updates. Trent has been continuing to work on the bathrooms. I absolutely love the faucets we selected (9 months ago). On past projects, I haven’t been willing to splurge on items

Ahhh…another busy week at our house! This Tuesday Tidbits is full of updates that are (thankfully) a little more exciting. The original main level doors that we stripped, are now getting a coat of primer and just about ready for a couple coats of paint. I’m so excited to see them in place. They match

It’s a strange sentence for me to write, but we didn’t really have a crazy, insane, over-the-top busy week at the house. It was nice…very, very nice. Trent was out of the country for a few days on a work/fun trip and when he sent me this pic I became a little giddy. He caught

It has been another super busy week! Our Tuesday Tidbits could seriously have 100 photos and updates this week – but I won’t bore you. Plus, I think it would take me an entire day to sort and download them all. Here are the week’s highlights: Since Trent was able to build the 2 crazy

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s been another busy week for us on the house! However, this Tuesday Tidbits is all about doors. As you know from last week’s posts, I’ve been stripping the original doors all week. However, I am now down to the last side on the last door! I’m trying desperately to not think about the trim, casing, windows,

Wood Stripping Tutorial

As I mentioned previously, we have been working on stripping the paint/stain from our 160 year old doors/windows/trim/casing. We tried every possible option and found one that works well. Maybe this tutorial will save you some time, some money and some serious frustration. We did initially start with calling a couple of professional businesses and
