Demo Day.....Upstairs Bathroom

Hi All,
The weather has been some what nice here in Florida. So I figured today would be a great day to share a behind the scenes makeover. October 5th marked our 16th year living in our home. The house had great potential and good bones, but it needed a lot of work. Did I mention it was the worst house on the block in a nice neighborhood? Over the years we have tackled so many diy projects and our "Haunted House" as the neighbors called it is looking really good. Sure we still have other projects we need to tackle, but bit by bit the finish line to our diy projects is getting a lot closer. YAY!!! Now for the upstairs bathroom...




This is how the bathroom looked when we purchased the house 16 years ago. The wallpaper and vanity screams 1980's. Since the bathroom was functional we sorta put it on the back burner to take care of more pressing projects. Eventually we did a mini makeover on the space. We removed the wallpaper, upgraded the light fixture, replaced the vanity mirror and painted the walls. Sorry no pics.


I like the gold faucet but I won't be keeping it because it is rather worn. Bomber. I never stopped liking gold fixtures even when the trend switched to pewter, nickle, and chrome. How about that vanity? Not!!!! The hubby decided that he would build a brand spanking new one to take it's place.



That wall paper appears to be endless!!! Yikes!!! It's gotta go too! I see it's leaving now!!! lol



Demolition went fairly easy. The hubs removed the vanity, and the toilet, then he busted up the tile floor. We will be keeping the pictures and the mirror. Those items were purchased when we did the mini makeover.


Once the demo was complete the Hubs dry fitted the tile. He decided to lay the tile in the standard layout since the bathroom is not that big. In this case a simple layout is best.





The light fixture is a keeper. It was one of the items purchased for our mini makeover also.


So what do you think so far? This is the Hubs second tile job and he rocked it out like a true professional, if I must say so myself. The demo has been done and the tile is finished. Next up, an easy bathroom vanity that you'll love.


Go out and make today a GREAT  day!!!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
