#5: Turning a Covered Patio into a Screened-In Porch

The first “big”, “official”, “serious”, “what are we thinking??” project Stephen decided to tackle was changing his mother-in-law’s covered patio into a screened-in porch. Luckily, the groundwork had been laid… the concrete was already there, as was the roof and the columns. This made the job so much more do-able by a DIY newbie! StephenContinue reading “#5: Turning a Covered Patio into a Screened-In Porch”

Painting my Kitchen Island Green!

Over the past couple of years, I have taken baby steps with painting my kitchen island. Originally, the island was the wall color of the rest of our house (when the house was first built). This was a very light (almost white!) gray. Then, I decided to paint the island a medium gray color- SWContinue reading “Painting my Kitchen Island Green!”

#7: Cube Shelf Makeover!

They’re an inexpensive way to organize really anything! The only thing about them is that they are pretty basic looking. Normally, IContinue reading “#7: Cube Shelf Makeover!”

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”

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”
