Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray 6205 Paint

Another paint color we decided to use was Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray. It is a shade darker than the Sea Salt color we used in the guest bathroom. We used Comfort Gray in the guest bedroom/Stephen’s office downstairs, and also in the master bathroom. I love the color. Don’t let the name fool you- IContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray 6205 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray 7015 Paint

The one good thing about the original paint we had in our house was that it was a very (very) light gray, so it kept our house feeling bright and light. I loved the feel of it, and wanted to keep that light look. However, I did want a little more of a contrast betweenContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Repose Gray 7015 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt 6204 Paint

Another color we used when we got our house painted was SW Sea Salt. When I was doing online research of good paint colors, Sea Salt kept popping up as one that is highly recommended. It’s a light green with some gray in it. I’m usually a blue kind of gal, but lately I haveContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Sea Salt 6204 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray 7017 Paint

We got the inside of our house painted about a month ago. The builders used “builder grade” basic paint originally, and we always knew we would update it eventually. Pretty much anytime we came in contact with the cheaper paint, it would make a mark… so you can probably imagine how it looked after 3Continue reading “Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray 7017 Paint”

DIY Laundry Room Shelving

Our neighbor contacted us about custom-building a laundry room shelf that could fit 4 laundry baskets. Stephen worked up some plans, using the dimensions they needed, and got to it! He bought 3/4” cabinet-grade plywood for the shelves, 2x2s for cleats, and 2x6s for the top. The plywood came as a 4’ x 8’ sheet,Continue reading “DIY Laundry Room Shelving”

Installing an In-Ground Basketball Goal

My three kids love the sport of basketball. They are constantly dribbling and shooting anywhere there is a hoop. We have had a goal in our driveway for years, but it was always the portable kind. After our third one “died” (after cracks in the bases, goals that fell over, poles that won’t stand upright,Continue reading “Installing an In-Ground Basketball Goal”

Fixing a Canvas Art Misprint

My mom’s friend recently ordered some art to be printed on a large canvas. Well, when she got it, it was misprinted… there was a white border on the sides of the front of the canvas that shouldn’t have been there. Her friend called and they sent her a replacement. And… you probably guessed it…Continue reading “Fixing a Canvas Art Misprint”
