Peel and Stick Tile How To

Remember a few months ago when I was going to rip out my tile floors and replace them? And then when I decided to make it a whole weekend out of it by replacing the toilet and then the vanity? Ahh those were simpler times.

After a loooooong week of showering in our basement bathroom (with no heat… in March), we were finally able to reclaim our bathroom, new floors and all! Keep on reading for my how to, along with some after pics!

Our Okay Bathroom Gone Bad

We’ve just about finished our mini-renovation of our bathroom and let me tell you, it already looks so much better! I can’t wait to show you what we did! Our bathroom has never been a dream bathroom, but it was functional and nothing was wrong with it… until a few months ago.

How to Refinish a Table

It’s done (well, it’s been done for a while, but I haven’t had the chance to write it up. What can I say, life happens y’all)! I’ve finally completed my project of refinishing the bar table I picked up from Facebook Marketplace for $50. It was not the easiest project I’ve ever done, but I am so happy I put the effort into the table, rather than just painting it white and calling it a day.

Exterior Update

For those of you following along on Instagram (@madaboutdecorblog) you might recall that J and I were in the process of siding our house in early October. I thought I would share some pictures of the before, during and after!

Overall, the siding was in decent condition. It was cracked in a few spots (it probably didn’t help that J hacked the bottom of a few pieces with a weed wacker) and slightly faded from the sun. The color reminded me of a powder blue suit from the 70s and it didn’t help that the brick in the front was also painted the same gross powder blue color as well, just really rounding out the gorgeous curb appeal. NOT.

New Years Resolutions

It’s that time of year again when everyone is making their New Years Resolutions; to get healthy, to work out more, to make more money, you’ve heard them all. Typically most people don’t make it past January with their New Years Resolutions, but I wanted to share mine with you all.

The Anatomy of a Lake House

So a while ago, I went to Michigan for the weekend with one of my best friends and one of our favorite things to do is grab a couple cold drinks, hop on her grandpa’s pontoon and take a lap around the lake. But this year, I found myself looking a little harder at the different types of houses that graced Sister Lakes, MI. The different sizes, styles, colors and even shapes were fascinating to me. The more I looked, the more I realized this would make for a great blog post!

I’m sure when I say “Lake House” everyone pictures a giant house with a ton of windows, a dock for the boat and maybe even a floating pier for sun bathing and jumping in to cool off. While that’s mainly what I found as well, there were a couple different houses I wanted to highlight!

Herringbone Accent Wall How-To

Hey y’all! Sorry, it’s been a while since my last post, but we had some water leaking into our basement so that has been priority numero uno! Perks of homeowner-ship, I suppose! (Slightly missing our apartment, where I could just call my landlord to fix everything!)

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ll know I took on a herringbone project late night this weekend! If you’re not following me, check me out at @madaboutdecorblog for an additional look into upcoming projects and other aspects of my life (AKA probs some fat cat pics).
