Faux Fireplace

This was a fun piece to make. Ive had the g rate for a while and my friend was talking about yule logs and this came to mind. Its a great (safe) decor for those who dont have a fireplace and want the ambiance of one. NO flame flicker candles.

Almost done.

A coat of paint and the new tile. It looks so much better. Just a few finishing details and hanging the towel bars. I spray painted them black.

Dont laugh!

HOw the heck to get the toilet out without breakin gmy sore back and dripping all over the floors. Ahah, the wheelbarrow worked nicely.

Hmm, what to do with that toilet.

Hmmm to have the installer take out the toilet and reinstall it the cost was $120. Isn't my husband a pipefitter? His old toilet needed replaced so we decided to take it out and he could get his own toilet and put it in. You know how men are with their toilets! Go Jenna, a few bolts and pulls and easy. (after draining of course)

Bathroom redo.

Im about to get very busy with wholesale orders for fall and xmas. The kids and I thought we would tackle a home project while we had a bit of time. We redid Matts bathroom as a birthday surprise. I had someone install the tile but we did all the prep work to save some $$. The floor had carpet and the residue of a previous carpet that was glued down that had to be scraped. Now that wa snot a fun job. Thanks to Jenna and her friend Tory who did most of the scraping.

Americana Window Topper OOAK

This topper was fun to make. It has rusty bells and safety pins at the top so it an be hung as a curtain topper. Also looks great draped on an old chair.

Primitive Shutters

Painted and recycled shutters are always a big hit!
