Anytime you upgrade a shower or tub, there are a lot of unknowns! This particular shower was not only outdated but it didn't drain and it had mold in the floor. Plus the tiles were falling off the wall! Someone had glued them to these plywood boards back in the day! Inside of the shower:… Continue reading This Bathroom Upgrade was NO JOKE!
Sometimes a homeowner is a very skilled DIY-er and just needs a little help to realize the vision for their project. Together, with the help of our friend John Horn, and a little pinterest inspiration, we were able to update their fireplace into a brilliant focal point in this family's den. This is the fireplace before… Continue reading Fireplace Facelift

Goodbye 60’s pink tile…
Abilene has a LOT of colorful bathroom tile!! This pale pink bathroom needed a little updating. We were able to use a tile paint from Sherwin Williams to clean it up to a nice white.

Corner Office // Hardwood Floors
Helped a local office update their historic building, turning bedrooms into offices. The building was built by the railroad around 1910 as the train depot. Over the years this building has had many owners and many uses. So much history in this building! Here is the first office we tackled. Beautiful antique windows!! Pulling up… Continue reading Corner Office // Hardwood Floors
Do you ever just see something random at a flea market and immediately get inspired? I saw these old screwdrivers and immediately thought they would make cute knobs. However, I lacked the skill set to complete the project. That didn't stop me from bringing them home. 4 years later, when my husband of 2 years… Continue reading Vintage Knobs
