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. We normally stick to neutral colors, but this time I went bold with a warm copper for the walls! See… Continue reading Goodbye 60’s pink tile…

How we updated a 60’s kitchen

Our latest rehab is on the market and I'm enjoying reminiscing over where it began! Digging through old photos is always the fun part. Sometimes it's hard to remember how far a house has come!
