I have three faucets for sale that I would LOVE to send to new homes for a new kitchen/bath or renovated space!!

 They are brand new from when I worked in a Kohler showroom.

I am unable to use them and will include free shipping in the USA only.  They are all in the original boxes that they are sold in.

Chair Refurbish...

I thought I would post a chair rehab I did using an old chair I bought and painted white (first painted orange, which was hideous and then blue).  I was living in Maine and visited a now-defunct Maine Cottage showroom and bought some fabric I used to cover the seat.

It is my favorite rehab as I've painted a lot of furniture in the past.

The Power of (White) Paint...

It has been so long since I have been an active blogger, so I'd like to aim for one post a week that is vaguely interesting.

I have owned about 10 different homes and a lot of my photos are, the real thing, taken way before instant uploads.

I wanted to share a couple of before and after photos of the kitchen in one of my previously owned homes.  My former husband and I didn't have a load of money to spend, so we just made small cosmetic fixes that looked great without breaking the bank.  We also painted the bathroom door white, which is in the last photo. The walls were newly wallpapered, though I didn't care much for the floor, we left it as is.  My staging skills aren't what they are today, so you will notice lots of 'stuff' I didn't get out of the pictures.  When in doubt, paint it white!!

Please note it looked great in person!!  ;-)

The 'Befores' are all above the 'Afters' -
