When I first saw my hideous bathroom, the only thing I liked was the vanity. Actually, I loved the vanity. While planning my bathroom update, I knew I wanted to keep it, but it definitely needed some TLC. Continue reading “My Bathroom Makeover [Part 4] Stripping the Vanity with Citristrip”

My Kitchen Transformation [Part 2]

Finally, my kitchen is starting to look like a kitchen! At the end of my last post, it was just an empty room with paint on the walls. Read about it here!

A couple days after I wrote that, I headed over to check if there was any progress. I didn’t take pictures, but my living room was FULL of boxes. My cabinets! My countertop! There were tons of boxes, which is good because I’m looking forward to having lots of cupboards (well, as many as I can have in my small kitchen).

My Kitchen Transformation [Part 1]

*This post contains affiliate links. I only recommend products I absolutely love.*

Hey all! Work has been absolutely bananas since I went back on the 22nd, so I’ve had no energy to blog when I get home! Ah, the life of a school secretary. Things will start to slow down by the end of September, but the start of the school year is always so chaotic!

I’ve had a few people telling me they love seeing my bathroom update progress, so I thought I’d share the super exciting reno that is happening in my kitchen. I’m so freaking excited about this. The reason I’m doing my bathroom myself is so I can spend my money on a professional kitchen renovation!

Let’s take a look at what’s been done so far… Continue reading “My Kitchen Transformation [Part 1]”

My Bathroom Makeover [Part 1]: Painting the Ceiling… Black!

*This post contains affiliate links.*

My house was built in 1955 and was owned by just one family before me. I bought it from a 95-year-old woman when she decided to move in with her adult children. So, as you can imagine, the entire house is a little… well… dated.

She also loved green. Like, “every-surface-in-the-house-painted-green” loved green. Hospital mint green. It’s not a terrible colour, unless its on everything, then it’s horrid.

I love monochrome colour schemes in houses, so since I bought the house a little under a month ago I’ve been dreaming of greys, whites, blacks, and silvers covering the never ending mint.

So, let’s talk about my horrific bathroom. Continue reading “My Bathroom Makeover [Part 1]: Painting the Ceiling… Black!”

DIY Crochet Ukulele Strap

Anyone who knows me knows I ADORE my 3 ukuleles. I taught myself to play by using YouTube and by looking up chords online. It’s so easy to play and tons of fun too.
I’ve wanted a strap for my tenor uke for quite awhile. It has a pickup so I can play it in church when I’m playing in the band, but I always have to sit while I play which drives me nuts.

I tried finding a simple pattern for a ukulele strap online, but it seemed like they all wanted me to drill a hole in the end or just tie a flimsy ribbon around myself. So not what I wanted. It took me a couple tries to get right, but now I have a super cute (sparkly!) strap for my instrument.  Continue reading “DIY Crochet Ukulele Strap”

Super Easy Homemade Chocolate Milk

I love a cold glass of chocolate milk. But I can’t justify paying over $6 for a 4 litre jug of the stuff at the grocery store… yikes! This new homeowner can’t afford such luxuries.

So, I looked to the best place I could think of for a simple recipe: Pinterest.

Pinterest is, by far, the best source of recipes I’ve ever come across. Seriously. If you don’t have a food and drink board to pin on, you are missing out on some excellent tastebud experiences.   Keep reading…
