If there’s one area of the kitchen that drove me nuts, it was the cabinets. Don’t get me wrong, the structure of the cabinets is great. I knew I didn’t have to spend the money replacing them, thank goodness – talk about an expense! But, I also didn’t love the way the cabinets looked. They […]
Are you looking for a simple way to spruce up a room? I have recently fallen in love with woodworking and I stumbled across the beauty of crown molding. I always knew it existed, of course, but I didn’t realize just how much it could spruce up a room. It’s not that hard to do […]
Are you remodeling a room in your home? You’ve probably thought about whether you should gut it or not, right? I had the same thoughts. I have renovated four rooms in my home in the past year. It’s become my hobby. Now that my kids are grown, I have a lot more time on my […]

As a DIY remodeler, I thought the hardest part would be doing the renovations. But I was wrong. Honestly, it’s picking the paint colors. I can’t tell you how long it took me to choose the right colors once I renovated my home. It was harder than putting the plans together for my renovations. Fortunately, […]
I didn’t realize how much a kitchen backsplash could change a kitchen until I changed ours out. My wife was tired of the old checkered backsplash we had. She wanted something more modern and that matched our new kitchen color. This was new territory for me so I decided to do some research. In my […]

My house is getting older, as much as I don’t want to admit it. As I walk around and check things out, I realized that there are little things I never pay attention to that really take away from my home’s beauty. One place is the baseboards. Honestly, when’s the last time you looked down. […]
