Tuesday Tidbits on Wednesday

Friends, I have a confession to make: we were so into our Christmas that as I sat on the sofa last night it dawned on me that it was actually Tuesday! And I had not done a blog post! We simply lost track of our days. We DID take most of Sunday off and Monday

Then and Now

As we near the end of the year, we like to look back and see how far we have come.  **If you are in the middle of a renovation/home project of your own, just look at your before photos…it will help push you through to the end.** So while these still are not true “before

Tuesday Tidbits

We have once again had another busy week for our Tuesday Tidbits (we really sound like a broken record). While our projects are a little less major than at the start of the project, they are finishes. Which means they take 10x’s as long as far larger projects even though they look like they should

Tuesday Tidbits

It has been another busy week at the house for this Tuesday Tidbits. But thankfully, we are now in a blanket of white! It looks beautiful outside and changes the light inside. As you can tell, the front parlor is almost fully complete. We need to put the toe trim up around the entire baseboard,

Two Updates in One Week

Happy Black Friday, friends! Hopefully, everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We DID take the entire day off yesterday, but there won’t be any shopping for us this today (unless we can count a trip to the hardware store). As I mentioned on Tuesday, this week has been so busy that I needed to do a

It’s another Tuesday Tidbits and I will have to do a second blog post this week because there is just TOO MUCH going on right now! Things are changing fast at the house and it is all for the better (yay!). This week we installed the ovens (3 ovens…they are all convection, but the top one

Door Hardware Clean-up Tutorial

It’s another tutorial friends…because I learned something new (and super easy) and feel like I should save another poor soul any wasted, unnecessary effort. We saved all the original main floor doors – because they are completely amazing! Both the doors and all the hardware had at least 87 coats of paint on them. At

Q & A

It feels like it hasn’t been that long since our last Q&A, but we receive a lot of similar questions and try to keep up on the answers. Here are some of the more recent common ones. Question: When are you moving in? Answer: We truly have no idea! But we are hoping by the

Friday Favorites

Ahhhh…the weekend is finally here. We are through Halloween and looking towards Thanksgiving. And we just might be moved into this house by Christmas! For all of you that have stated how sad you will be once this project is done (and you have no blog posts to read), fear not! Just because we are moving

Tuesday Tidbits

Time for another Tuesday Tidbits and it has been a busy week! While we don’t have a “deadline” to be into the house, we have deadline. The exterior will not be done until next spring/summer (I’ve accepted it and moved on). However, we believe the interior will be mostly done by the end of the
