We’re creating a Rustic Farmhouse Style Bathroom Design with budget decor. The flooring, vanity, fixtures, vanity top, mirror and bathtub in our guest bathroom are all being updated.
After four years in our house, we are finally tackling the super ugly guest bathroom! This was our boys’ bathroom while they were home from college and now it’s our guest bathroom. To say it had a serious case of the beiges would be an understatement. Beige walls, beige floors, beige bathtub, beige counter, beige sink. The only thing in the bathroom that wasn’t in the brown family was the gold light. . So now we have planned the bathroom makeover and I’m going to share my design ideas with you. First, I’m going to torture you with the beige ugliness.
I’m excited to be hosting a few very special guest bloggers over the next few weeks here at Centsible Chateau. I’ve chosen some amazing creators to share their gorgeous fall decor ideas with us all. My first guest is Michelle from Our Crafty Mom. All of Michelle’s designs are gorgeous and this DIY Rustic Fall Grapevine Wreath is no exception. Let’s find out how she made it!
After installing this shelf during our laundry room makeover, a friend pointed out that it looks just like a restoration hardware wall shelf that costs hundreds of dollars . Of course I was thrilled. There’s nothing better than knowing I can help people save a ton of money. Our shelf was really cheap to make, and so simple to install. The board was around $5 and the plumbing pieces were a couple of dollars each (and they are cheaper if you buy in bulk). You can make this DIY Restoration Hardware wall shelf even if you don’t own a saw!

It has been a long hard winter in western New York. We are well into spring and it was still snowing just last week. So what did we do? We decided to install a deck. 😉 Well, Mike did all of the work and he was out there in snow, sleet, ice, rain and wind. He really couldn’t get a break with the weather, but even with mother nature working against him he got it installed in time for warm temps! Although it was time consuming, the installation process was easy enough for him to do on his own. In this post he’s sharing how to install the Tropics Composite Deck from Lowe’s.
While we were updating our laundry room and back hall, we painted all of the trim and doors white. I thought white paint would be a good fix for our ugly, beige flat door that leads to our garage. But all it did was make it an ugly, boring WHITE flat door. #FAIL
We didn’t plan on doing anything else to the door. But we also didn’t originally plan on Extending our laundry room cabinets to the ceiling or Installing concealed hinges on our cabinet doors.
So what’s one more surprise project, right?
Our laundry room is moving along nicely but I’ve added another quick project! When we removed the cabinet doors I realized I really wanted concealed hinges installed before we put them back up. The husband just loves making me happy (or is it that he loves playing with new tools?)so he installed them for me. At first he was worried it wouldn’t work because our cabinet doors are quite thin, but where there’s a will there’s a way(my will, his way)!
This charming little piece of vintage fun sits in my foyer. She’s been a cute teal color for a few years. It was time for a change and I decided to use chalk paint to give her a makeover!
Chalk paint seems really different and overwhelming if you haven’t used it before, but I promise it’s so easy! It is the perfect paint to use on an already finished piece because you don’t have to strip the old paint. [Read more…]
We are giving our laundry room a makeover! Most of the makeover is painting, but we also did this really inexpensive modification to our cabinets that has taken them to a whole new level(get it?) By simply using some wood and molding to bring the cabinets to the ceiling, we changed the look of the entire room! You can easily extend your cabinets too!
This project was very simple. It took Mike less than 20 minutes. He wrote up some simple instructions on how to do it so that you can do it at home! Here is how to extend your cabinets to the ceiling:
