Downstairs Bathroom

Hello 2016! You may think that we fell off of the face of the Earth, however, we have just been big time blog slackers the last couple of years. Even though we haven't posted there has been lots of progress on our house in 2014 and 2015 and we are looking forward to a productive 2016! It is our goal to make at least one blog post per month this year, so let's jump right in to a project that we finished in 2014...

Our house has one bathroom downstairs that was down right horrendous when we moved in...

This lovely bathroom had it all: seashell sink, painted cast iron tub w/ only two feet, velvety curtains, faux finished sconces, gold AND silver colored hardware, and wallpaper boarder just like at Nana's... (yikes!). Rick refinished the antique cast iron bathtub a couple of years ago, and is the only thing that we kept in the bathroom... Everything else had to go ....

MB Eye Candy: Episode 3 - 99% MB Reveal

I could continue to drag things out by focusing on each little piece of the reconstruction process, or I could continue to go on small tirades about how old rehab projects creep along like cold molasses. However, I will not do that! I have a finished room and you gotta see it!

MB Eye Candy: Episode 2 - Double Hung Restoration

So happy with the double hung windows after I restored them. It was a lot of work, but worth it. Old windows were made to last.. and hopefully these will stay intact for another 100 years. We've got outdoor storm windows that helped keep the original windows from totally rotting out over the years of neglect, but some were still pretty messed up.

Patches and Rabbit Holes

Hey Everybody!
I guess I owe you guys a post! I need to get back into the habit..
I am of the opinion not to post until I get something completely finished, which is harder than it sounds.
Since projects in old houses tend to balloon into 5+ other projects.. everything seems to rely on the next! IT NEVER ENDS!!

Happy Holidays!!

Hi Everyone! I hope that 2012 is wrapping up (pun intended!) well for you! Christmas time is one of those phenomenons that brings out the good, the bad, and the ugly in people. Hope for you that it is more good than bad or ugly.  Rick and I finally finished up Christmas shopping today, Christmas Eve Eve, aka, Festivus.  We are about to sit down to our Festivus meal and laugh about all the ways we were disappointed this year a la Kramer and Frank Costanza.

Corner From Hell

Hey peeps! Long time no post! So... it has been a while since I've posted anything. 
I have really good excuses reasons for lagging on the posts!

1) Switched Jobs
2) Got Hitched
3) Computer Broke

Told you!
