When we moved into our home, 7 years ago, we immediately replaced all the carpet upstairs. Fortunately the downstairs had new hardwoods, so we didn’t have to worry about the first floor, but with two kids (and 4 years of a dog) our loft and hallway had started to get worn.

My bathroom has slowly gotten updated, but the one thing that really hadn’t been touched was the ginormous soaker tub. Honestly, I’m not a “bath person” so it rarely gets used. I wanted to give is a simple update, without spending much money. So, here was my inspiration picture…
Back in January we had a leak in our kitchen ceiling. After cutting a portion out we discovered that the culprit was our master bath shower. We had wanted to replace the shower since we moved into our house about 6 years ago, but the expense of upgrading it was never in our budget. I […]
