Master Bathroom Remodel: Hardware Accessories

Now that we have settled into our home (a little more) after flooding, I can honestly say that it’s slowly beginning to feel like normal!!!  Hallejuhah!!!  Cue to the angels & the choir, because HOPE is in the air!!  It might also be due to the fact that I am taking a fabulous bible study class called “Anchored in Hope,” (taught by an incredibly blessed woman), but regardless, something beautiful inside the soul is taking place!!   And that hope has inspired me to finally get around to do a post on our Master Bathroom Remodel: Hardware Accessories.  

***Update***  Click HomeTour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom or Home Tour:  Summer Dining Room to see more of our house makeover.

I’ll be covering all things crystal, glass, and mirrors:

  1.   Chandelier
  2.   Crystal knobs
  3.   Glass pulls
  4.   Door knobs
  5.   Mirrors

Sink, shower, tub, and Barn door Hardware will come in next post – so stay tuned!!


MASTER BATHROOM REMODEL:    HARDWARE ACCESSORIES

I knew there was a ton to cover in this room, and that is probably why I have been procrastinating on getting this post done – LOL!!  Now, that I am looking through pictures, etc…., I know that I will have to split the master bath remodel into several posts.   So, just sit tight…. it’s coming!!

I will honestly admit that I had NO idea how much thought and planning went into a master bathroom remodel.  It’s very overwhelming (probably because I hadn’t planned on flooding – arrrrrgh!!) at first, but with the right planning it is achievable.  For this post, I will do some before, during, and after pictures on our master bath remodel…..and share my picks for master bathroom remodel: hardware accessories!!

Out of all of the changes that I made, the hardware accessories are what makes the bathroom mine!!  HUH????  The hardware and chandelier are the final accessories of the Master Bath;  they are the jewelry that adds the final touch.  And they reflect my (our – ha!) personality.  So, where did I get that bling…..?  Let’s find out 🙂

Home Tour: Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom

Today, I am finally getting to share our master bedroom home tour – woohoo!  This room is still not completely finished, but it is getting closer day by day.  Of course when that happens, I will probably be ready to change it again – lol, but for now it is working for us.  If you love all things farmhouse, and your heart beats coastal cottage, then you are at the right place.  Here it is!  Home Tour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom.

If you are joining in from Home Tour:  Summer Dining Room or My Easter Tablescape:  Blue & Yellow – welcome!

***If you’re looking for more coastal farmhouse or painting tips & inspiration, follow me on pinterest. These boards are updated daily with pictures of your favorite styles.***


HOME TOUR:  COASTAL FARMHOUSE MASTER BEDROOM

So far, I have done a couple of posts on our master bed frame makeover:  painted white and our diy nightstand makeover:  painted white with dark top, to show you one side of our room.  And now, I can finally show you the rest of our bedroom.

I know there are some things that need to be tweaked, but at least it’s starting to feel more like home again.   I will finish the bedroom tour with the painted dresser tutorial – coming soon!!  So, stay tuned!!

Accent wall Sherwin-Williams Naval – SW 6244 and the side walls are Silver Strand  – SW 7057.


HOME TOUR:  COASTAL FARMHOUSE MASTER BEDROOM

So, what is coastal farmhouse style anyway?  Coastal farmhouse style is really a “feeling” rather than a “look.”  Huh?  What does that mean?  It is the feeling you get when you walk into a room versus what the room actually looks like.

So, your coastal farmhouse bedroom will look a little different than mine.  It might look similar, but feel different. What’s the secret then?  Use the 10 elements below to make it personal.

10 ELEMENTS OF COASTAL FARMHOUSE STYLE:

  • Relaxed, calming vibe
  • Antique, vintage furniture or accessories
  • Shades of blue, gray, or tan
  • White painted items, white-washed items
  • Lots of pillows, throws blankets, and fluffy bedding
  • Coastal Accessories: items with rope, coral or seashells, sea glass decor
  • Mementos:  items that evoke precious memories
  • Woven baskets
  • Tropical plants or natural greenery floral accents

HOME TOUR:  COASTAL FARMHOUSE MASTER BEDROOM

BEFORE, DURING & AFTER PICTURES:

Before we begin the tour, I wanted to show you a couple of pictures of what our bedroom used to looked like before the flood (last day before we evacuated), during the cleanup process (2nd set of pics), and after (now).

GOOD  NEWS:  The furniture was solid wood and we were able to save it.

SAD NEWS:  The water covered and damaged the feet, so we had to paint it.

END RESULT:  It was a blessing in disguise – we should have painted that furniture a long time ago!!

HOME TOUR:  COASTAL FARMHOUSE MASTER BEDROOM

MASTER BEDROOM TOUR:  

So, who’s ready to begin the tour?  Let’s first start off with the obvious – the painted furniture.

It always amazes me what a fresh coat of paint can do – right?  The painted bed and painted nightstands completely transform the dark furniture, and give the room an updated, fresh look.  Plus, the white really pops off of the navy accent wall.

But I do understand that not everyone enjoys painting nor wants to take on the challenge of painting furniture.  If this is you, scroll down to the end of the post for more information on bedroom furniture ideas.

If you want more info on the white-washed bed click here, or more info on the nightstands click here.

Picture Below.  This is my first time sharing our painted dresser (making it’s official DEBUT – lol) in the master bedroom, and I will post the white-wash tutorial on that soon.  Do you like it?

The white-washing technique gives it a beach-y, more casual feel and lightens up the darker furniture.  Plus, the original color of the dark furniture blended into the color of the hardwoods, giving it zero contrast -yikes!!

When we first moved into this house (14 years ago), we had carpet in here so the dark furniture looked great.  Yep, that’s right – we’ve had that furniture for 14 years now.  So, needless to say the darker dresser was waaaaay overdo for a LITTLE update anyway- lol!!

SNEAK PREVIEW FOR DRESSER TUTORIAL:  COMING SOON

Do you think I maybe should have been using a drop cloth all of these years when painting furniture – hahaha!!!   But I have an idea for painting the floor in the garage soon – wink wink!!

In the picture below, this is the other side of our bedroom.  And I will admit, this is the stage it is in right now….. I have not finished decorating it yet.

The master bedroom is always the last one to get done – am I right??  It comes right after volleyball lessons, teenage girls’ beauty items (don’t even get me started with that – lol!!), and well…. life.  Just keeping it real ladies!!

Above:  I did paint that floor length mirror blue (~ 8 years ago), but do not have pictures of the process – sorry!!  It’s a water-color painting technique – that I love.  I will try to figure out a way to show you the technique because it really turned out so beautiful.

More pictures of the bed and bedding…..

All of my comforter selections tend to lean botanical, floral, or boho style.  This way, I can stay within my coastal style (botanical or boho) and farmhouse style (floral) no matter which one I choose.

This blue botanical  bedding is Ralph Lauren, and has reversible stripes on the back side (which I love).  This allows me to change things around when I get a little tired of it without having to buy something new.  Win-Win!!

And of course – I’m a color gal – so it’s gotta have some punch to it!!  Scroll to the end of the post to shop bedding – I could not find this exact bedding, but found some similar choices that are equal in style.

 

Closeup picture of the nightstand and farmhouse lamp.  It is no longer around either, but scroll down to the end of the post for similar options.

 

The little white basket on the floor was painted also….but again I do not have pictures. What??  Another one with no pictures.  I know. I know.  UGH!!   It is on my to-do list for the blog though.  It was so easy to paint, and gave it new life.  What do you think – is it a winner?

 

This bench is definitely a life-saver.  It hides the tv cable “junk” (my husband wants to mount the tv on that wall above the bench – ?? – maybe ?? – we’ll see), and those 2 baskets store my girls’ swimsuits and favorite beach towels.

They like to just come in and quickly grab what they need to head to the pool.  But I am thinking it’s about time they could store their own stuff!!  It’s the little things – right??

 

Here is another picture of the blue mirror and white basket.  For now the mirror is leaning against the wall because we don’t know if the tv wall mount is a sure thing yet – hahaha!!

The floor length mirror is a must for our bedroom though, so that we have somewhere to check ourselves out!!  Plus, I really love that it bounces so much light around the room.

See Picture Below.

This picture shows the left side of the room, leading to our master bath.  If you want to see the complete transformation of the master bathroom makeover click Master Bath Remodel:  Hardware Accessories.  It is by far one of the biggest changes made to our entire house – besides the kitchen.  Everyone who has seen it in person has given us a ton of compliments – so I’m kind of proud!!  Check it out if you have time.

 

See pictures below.

And my must-have barn door…..that almost didn’t happen!!  That’s another whole story – but at least we got it!!  If you want to see more barn door inspiration click 55 Incredible Ideas:  Not Just For Farmhouse Style.

Our other entry door to the bath was a double door system, and blocked off the left side of the wall where the dresser sits.  We always had to push the dresser down so that it barely even fit on the wall.  Then if you wanted to get something out of the drawer, it bumped into our other furniture.

Here is the picture before the dresser made its debut…..

We had the barn door installed to slide right because it was a space we never used (in that corner).

***TIP*** Just a little head up…..remember that it’s more difficult (not impossible though) to hang something on the wall where the door slides.  So, just make sure you hang your barn door to slide to an unused area of your room, or unused/less functional wall area.

And my favorite t-bar barn door handles….I kinda have a thang for these.  They are my go-to hardware all over the house.  But I especially liked this one because it is a heavier, sturdier handle.

 

Plus, I knew we needed an inside way to get out of the bath -ha!!  See below.

Inside the master bath – handle……

 

Better view where you can see the limited amount of wall space on the left side of the doorway.  It might also be that our dresser is bigger than it should be for the space…..but who wants to admit that?

 

 

This celadon glazed pitcher has been with us for AWHILE….to say the least.  I bought it at Home Goods ~8 years ago (or longer) and it just gets moved from room to room as I need it.

There is just something about the soft color, and that rusted handle that calms my nerves and reminds me of home.  And who doesn’t want their master bedroom to be a calming and serene retreat?

 

This “love pillow” is another favorite of mine that gets moved from room to room.  I also have a “home pillow” that is slightly more blue-gray than this blue-aqua color.

The shabby, ruffled edges and  roped letters add the perfect amount of texture to complete the coastal farmhouse style.

 

And who doesn’t love throw blankets??  Can a girl ever really have too many blankets or throw pillows?  No….I don’t think so!!

In here, I like that one throw is more sophisticated in color (bed- spa blue) and the other one is more fun (basket -mint colored).  These 2 colors together add a little dimension against the navy and cobalt blue bedding and pillows.

Which throw do you like more?  The one on the bed, or the one in the basket?  Let me know?

Master Bed Frame Makeover – Painted White

So, we have finally moved back into our bedroom downstairs…..and I am so excited about how the entire bedroom turned out.  The  2 things that “make” the bedroom and create some drama are the navy accent wall, and the white bed frame.  And since I painted the bed, I thought it would be awesome to show you the technique if you want to change your bed also.    Here is my master bed frame makeover – painted white using the dry-brushed technique tutorial.  If you want a glazed or antiqued tutorial (like my nightstands)…..click  HERE. Want to see my master bath makeover, click Master Bathroom Remodel:  Hardware Bling.

MASTER BED FRAME MAKEOVER – PAINTED WHITE

Where did it all begin?

before…..

 

 

after…..

 


SUPPLIES NEEDED:  

  • primer – I used zinsser

  • white paint – I used Behr Swiss Coffee – Home Depot

  • clear wax – I used trewax

  • paint brush – I prefer 2″ angled (angled gets into the grooves better)

  • 150-grit sandpaper or sponge -to distress bed

  • large boxes (heavy or weighted) or piece of furniture – to hold headboard/footboard upright while painting

  • wooden blocks- to hold up (rest) feet of bed on

  • rags/old shirts – to wipe off wax

  • canvas dropcloth or plastic – to protect floor


STEP 1:  PRIMING

***For Dry-Brushed Method***

before…..

 

To Prime:

Put your primer on in long brush strokes, making sure not to cover your bed in a solid paint color.  See below.

 

Closeup……

Full view……

 

Do the same technique for footboard and side rails if you have them.

 

 

 

 

 

*** LET PRIMER DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 2 – PAINTING (1ST COAT)

Put your first coat of white paint over primer in long brush strokes again, but this time covering more of the wood.

 

 

BELOW:  left side painted….right sight primed

 

You should be able to notice that the paint covers better than the primer, and it should feel thicker as you brush it on.  Just make sure NOT to cover the wood completely.  You should still be able to see brush strokes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BELOW:  PICTURE OF 1ST COAT PAINTED

 

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 3:  PAINT 2 MORE COATS

BELOW:  Headboard 3 coats, Footboard 2 coats.  Can you tell how the headboard has more coverage on it than the footboard?

***TIP***  This is the stage/step where I go back and add in some paint to cover certain areas that do no look as even.  This is just personal preference for me.  

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 4:  PUT CLEAR WAX ON

Now you can put on your wax, let dry, and rag/buff off.  Put on more coats of wax if you want a shinier finish- just fyi.


STEP 5:  SAND/DISTRESS

Use your 150-grit sandpaper or sponge and gently sand over random areas where you want some original wood to show.  I like my sanded areas to be over the ornate “leaves” sections to accent the details, and then over the corners where the bed would naturally get “bumped”.  I also added some sanded areas in the middle sections of the headboard and footboard to move the eye around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***OPTIONAL STEP***  WAX OVER SANDED AREAS.  I like to do this just to bring out the wood tone (the wax makes the wood tone darker for more contrast) against the white paint.  But of course, this is your bed, so it is your decison!!

 

AND….YOU……ARE…….DONE!!!  WOOHOO!! 

TIME TO PUT YOUR “NEW” BED INTO YOUR BEDROOM!!!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you love how your bed turns out….as much as I love mine!!  Let me know how your progress is going- or if you have any questions?  I would love to see some pictures of your bed too!!

I really feel like I got new furniture…without the high pricetag!!  Plus the white really lifts the room so much more than the stained brown color, and it gives me the contrast I need against the navy wall.  Don’t cha think ??

 

 

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK!!  LOVE & HUGS 🙂

29 Fabulous Wallpaper Ideas to Try for Your Powder Bathroom (Part 1)

Have you noticed a growing trend towards wallpaper again?  Yep- IT. IS. OFFICIAL.  From geometric to floral patterns, bold to subtle colors, and accent walls to full rooms, wallpaper is on the move upwards in the decor chain.  And I have to say, I ain’t hating it!!  It brings in a custom look, and a real sense of personality to your home.  So, who is ready??  29 Fabulous Wallpaper Ideas to Try for Your Powder Bathroom (Part 1).

***UPDATE*** 44 Adorable Wallpaper Ideas (Part 2) is now ready!  If you’re looking to shop your favorite wallpaper choices, check out this post.


FIRST THINGS FIRST: 

What are YOU looking for as you scroll through the pictures?   You will be drawn to:

  1.  Bold colors or subtle colors.
  2.  Large patterns/prints or small patterns/prints.
  3.  One accent wall, half wall with wainscoting, or the entire room with wallpaper.
  4.  Sophisticated style or playful style.

You may like both choices in each, but one of them will always catch your eye more than the other ones.  For example, you might choose:  subtle, small print, entire room, and sophisticated style.  Now you have an idea of which wallpaper style is YOUR style.  Scroll back through the pictures again…..ONE picture will stick out as your favorite!  You have found your style– take the plunge!!

Still afraid to commit – don’t worry!  The powder bath is the perfect room to try wallpaper because it isn’t connected to any other room in your house.  Go crazy if you want.  Try one accent wall or adhesive wallpaper – (the removal is easy if you decide you don’t like it).  So, now that you are out of excuses (I am also talking to myself too 😉 ) …….  Here are my picks for 29 Fabulous Wallpaper Ideas To Try For Your Powder Bathroom (Part 1).

28 INCREDIBLE BARN DOORS:  GET THE LOOK

I wanted to start off this post with a couple of pictures from the barn doors that we have in our home.   Our doors were custom made due to the irregular sizes of our openings and due to availability (or lack of, I should say).  There was zero availability during Hurricane Harvey ….(when we flooded).  And since we added the craftman style trim around all of our doorways and windows – we created irregular-sized openings  So, needless to say – custom it was!!

  • This is the hardware that I used for both of my barn doors (single – 6.6 ft. and double -10 ft. doors), and I  love them.  The guys who installed the double office doors had to cut down the rails (for custom sizing), but they work great.  The handles are very nice and heavy, and look stunning.  I used brushed nickel/stainless for mine, but the black are beautiful also.

 

  • TIP – make sure to read carefully for sliding door hardware for single or double doors and door sizes (EX:  one 48″w SINGLE door VERSUS two DOUBLE 24″w doors = 48″W).  It gets very confusing, so just triple check yourself!!

33 Best Outdoor Seating Options: ALL Under $500

Happy Spring Everyone!!  In honor of celebrating the first day of spring this week (woohoo!!), I thought it would be the perfect time to share all of my outdoor patio furniture finds with you.  And by finds – I mean the best deals to get the most bang from your buck.  Like you, we are always on a tight budget around here at the Prothro house.  With 2 kids and their activities, planning for college, saving for cars, etc….,  budget is pretty much #1 on our list – at all times!!  And outdoor decorating falls under that same, small budget as well!!  So, who is ready to see the 33 Best Outdoor Seating Options:  ALL Under $500?

33 BEST OUTDOOR SEATING OPTIONS:  ALL UNDER $500

source: thetarnishedjewelblog.com

FIRST THINGS FIRST:  Always remember to measure, measure again, and then measure again (LOL) your patio or outdoor living area for furniture placement.  It’s the worst feeling ever to fall in love with your adorable outdoor sectional, only to find out that it’s too big for your space.  Trust me – been there, done that!!

SECOND:  Tape off your patio furniture measurements so you can visualize the space.  For one this will help you plan your fabulous outdoor oasis, and two, it will triple check your measurements (haha).

THIRD:  Make sure to think about the function of your outdoor space, not only the looks.  For example:  What are you planning to do with your space, or how do you want your outdoor living space to feel?  Do you want:  a relaxing retreat with 4 chairs cozied up to an outdoor fireplace or firepit, a backyard oasis with outdoor entertaining in mind for your family and friends, or a comfy patio with a small corner outdoor sectional?

Painting 101: White-Washed Dresser Tutorial

Now, that I have posted our Home Tour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom, it is time to share the white-washed dresser tutorial with you – woohoo!!   It’s about time – right?   I know lots of you have been wanting to learn how to white-wash furniture, so this tutorial will give you everything you need to know (or should – lol!!!)  It is the same process as the Master Bed Frame Makeover (tutorial), but sometimes it just helps to see it on the furniture piece that you want to try it on.  So, let’s get to updating that dresser!!  Painting 101:  White-Washed Dresser Tutorial.


PAINTING 101:  WHITE-WASHED DRESSER TUTORIAL 

What is the white-washed technique?

I get asked quite often about different painting techniques, waxing, sanding, etc. that I use when painting furniture.  But the one method that comes up the most in discussion is how to get the white-washed “look.”  So, what is the white-washed technique anyway?

It’s basically a painting method that allows you to see part of the furniture peeking through (like you “wiped” something off with a rag, but the rag left some of the liquid behind).  This leftover “residue” would be “streaked” because of the motion of the rag (washed), giving it a “dulled or milky” appearance.  Does that make sense?

2 WAYS TO GET THE WHITE-WASHED LOOK:

  1. White-Washed Method.  In this method, the paint is diluted with water to make it runnier;  therfore, making it easier to wipe off with a rag.  The paint mixture is usually 3 parts paint to 1 part water ratio (3:1 ratio).   This technique works best when you are trying to “barely” change the color of the wood.  It will basically “lighten” the existing wood tone.  The more coats you put on, the less wood that shows through.  The cons of this method is that it is VERY messy, and also VERY time consuming if not done correctly.  Thus….. alternate method #2 – dry-brushing.
  1. Dry-Brushed Method.  This is the method that I use most often to get the white-washed look.  In this method, you will not dilute the paint with water but you will use a rag to get the excess paint off of your brush.  Basically, you are working with a “DRY-BRUSH” (one with little paint on it) – get it?  HUH?  You dip your paint into the paint can, get a SMALL amount of paint onto the brush, then WIPE OFF the excess paint each time.  This dry-brush (with little paint on it) allows the paint to come out in “streaks.”  ***I will explain more below when you can see the pictures, but I just wanted to give you a brief description.***

***NOTE***This post contains affiliate links which means that I will receive a small compensation if you purchase something from these links.  See my privacy and disclosure policies below for more info.  Thanks for your support.***

SUPPLIES NEEDED:  


8 STEPS:  WHITE-WASH PAINTING TUTORIAL

  1. Prep Dresser & Area
  2. Prime Dresser
  3. Paint Dresser – 2 coats
  4. Spray Paint Hardware
  5. Wax Dresser
  6. Distress Dresser (optional)
  7. Wax Dresser Again
  8. Put Hardware Back On

PAINTING 101:  WHITE-WASHED DRESSER TUTORIAL

So, here it is again – before…..


STEP 1:  PREP DRESSER & PAINTING AREA

Remove all of the hardware from your dresser, and wipe down dresser with a rag.  Make sure to wipe down all of the drawers and inside the dresser also.    Set up your canvas or plastic drop cloth, and make sure you are in a well ventilated area (like outside or in your garage). Prop your dresser up onto wooden blocks or paint cans to lift it off of the ground.  You do not want it sitting directly on your painting surface.

Obviously……I needed to put down something in my garage -picture above – but I’ve painted so many pieces that I got lazy.  DON’T BE ME – lol!!

NOTE – I did not sand this piece down (prior to painting) because my primer bonds really well to the furniture surface.  You can sand it down first if you choose…but why do the extra step if you don’t need to -haha!!  If you just feel like you need to sand it down, then I would recommend sanding down the top part only.


STEP 2:  PRIMING

Put a small amount of primer onto your paint brush, wipe off excess onto rag and begin gently brushing your primer onto your dresser.  You will need several rags for this process, as the paint will begin to soak through. ***TIP***The less paint you put onto the brush, the less messy it will be.  HINT-HINT!

See pictures below.  Here is what the priming stage looks like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***TIP***  Use long, quick brush strokes and make sure to gently brush the primer on.  You will not want to fully cover your piece – should look streaked like these pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FULLY PRIMED

 

FULLY PRIMED CLOSEUP

 

Why am I showing so many pictures?  LOL!!  Once you get this priming stage done, the painting steps are much easier.  Plus I just wanted to stress that you are “not fully” covering your piece with paint – just streaks of paint.

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 3:  PAINTING (2 COATS)

Now you will do the exact same method, but just using your white paint.  I used Behr Swiss Coffee from Home Depot for my white paint color.

Dip your brush into the paint, wipe off excess with rag, then gently brush on.  You will do TWO coats of this method.

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT – BETWEEN 2 COATS***

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here it is with the primed picture compared to the painted (2 coats) picture.  I just wanted you to be able to see the difference.

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 4 – PAINTING THE HARDWARE PULLS

While you are waiting for the dresser to dry, go ahead and prep area to paint your hardware.  Put plastic down on the ground, and lie your hardware onto wooden blocks or cardboard.  I always use wooden pieces from leftover projects (can you tell – lol) for mine, but just use something to lift them above the plastic.

Spray your hardware making sure to get the inside areas as well.  Wait at least 30 mins then flip them over and spray the back side.  Once again, make sure to get “all” areas of the hardware.

***TIP***  I spray all sides from the left, then spray from the top, then spray from the right, and then from the bottom.  This way, I make sure I don’t miss any of the spots.  Trust me, it is the worst feeling EVER!! to finally think you have finished your painted dresser, ONLY to realize that 2 or 3 of the hardware pulls did not fully get covered – ugh!!  Out comes the plastic, spray paint, clean up, and TIME – all again.  Make your life easier by just doing it right the first time!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some closeup pictures so you can see the brass color of the original hardware (left below) and then the oil-rubbed bronze color after it is spray painted.

***TIP***  If you have brass hardware and spray them with either bronze or black paint, you can gently sand down the edges of the pulls to get an antiqued look (the brass peaks through).  This turns out REALLY pretty!!  I’ve done it many, many times – I just wasn’t going for that “antique-y” look on this particular piece.  Give it a try if that’s what you’re going for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flip them over one more time (top side up), and gently spray again.  This will ensure that ALL sides are covered.

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


STEP 5 – WAXING DRESSER

Put the 1st coat of wax on with the sponge that’s included (or rag), let sit at least 15 minutes, and wipe off to buff.  This stage is always where the magic happens – am I right?  It’s like the wax joins everything together, and makes it look a-ma-zing!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***LET DRY OVERNIGHT***


***STEP 6 – GENTLY SAND (DISTRESS) DRESSER (OPTIONAL)***

Use the 150-grit sandpaper to lightly distress areas of the dresser where normal wear and tear would occur naturally over time.  I distressed my dresser on random places at the feet, on edges of some of the drawers,  and on the top section and edge(rim).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


STEP 7 – WAX AGAIN

Repeat the same process again with the wax for the entire dresser.  Let dry overnight.

***Then put ONE more coat of wax on the TOP portion only. ***  So the entire dresser will have 2 coats total, and the TOP portion will have 3 coats total.

***LET DRY 2 DAYS BEFORE PUTTING DECOR ON TOP***


STEP 8 – PUT HARDWARE ON

AND YOU ARE DONE!!  WOOHOO!!

55 Incredible Barn Door Ideas: NOT Just For Farmhouse Style

I know that barn doors have been around for awhile now, but I STILL believe they are worth all the hype. Since Joanna & Chip put them on the map in home design, they continue to show up in tons of house plans and evolve:  a character of timeless decor.  Thanks to the Gaines’, we not only have stylish door options, but functional door options to problematic/awkward/tight spaces (and they are just plain fun!!)  So if you haven’t jumped on board yet to this barn door craze – beware – this post is filled with tons of inspirational eye candy & products galore.  So here are 55 Incredible Barn Door Ideas:  NOT Just For Farmhouse Style.  Looking to shop barn doors, try 28 Incredible Barn Doors:  Get The Look.


55 INCREDIBLE BARN DOOR IDEAS:  NOT JUST FOR FARMHOUSE STYLE

FIRST THINGS FIRST:

So what makes barn doors so special?

Chip and Joanna Gaines may be miracle workers but they simply can't do everything. So when they opened Magnolia House B&B they recruited semi-retirees Rob and Marianne Ward as potential managers. First, though, they'd have to convince the Wards to move into the adjacent carriage house. And before that could happen, they'd have to undertake a major renovation on the carriage house itself.
source: hgtv.com (fixer upper)
  1.   They can be used in any decor style – (not just for  modern farmhouse style anymore)
  2.   They can be used in tight spaces- (they move side to side vs. in an arc motion with doors on hinges)
  3.   They add architectural design to a plain wall – (you choose the door style, ranging from simplistic to ornate)
  4.   They can be used to hide items you don’t want seen – (tv’s, bookshelf clutter, pantry items, laundry, etc.)
  5.   They can be used as window treatments
  6.   They can be used as a single door, double door, or even quadruple doors
  7.   They can be used with glass to let light in
  8.   They can be used with mirrors to reflect light or use  for full-length viewing
  9.   They can be used with chalkboards to add function and whimsy
  10.  They can even be used outdoors – yep check out #9!!

SECONDLY: I have 2 barn doors in my own house: 1)  a pair that replaced french doors to our office/piano room  (see below), and 2) one in my bedroom to my master bath (see 2nd set below).  And I absolutely LOVE them and highly recommend them!

outside entry

Both of these rooms had awkward areas for opening up the doors into the room.  As a result, this awkward area became useless and really limited furniture placement.  By adding the barn doors, we actually gained usable space, allowing for better flow/better function of both rooms.  We installed the office doors on the outside wall (entry wall- above) to gain more space inside the room, and also to add detail to the tall foyer walls.  In the bedroom we added one large door (below), and had it slide to an area that we did not use.  It was a no-brainer for us!  Click Master Bath Remodel:  Hardware Accessories and Home Tour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom to see more of our home.

My House Paint Colors: House of Blues

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends!!  Christmas is always such a magical season each year and I hang on to all of the memories as long as I can….and then it’s back to work – LOL!!  So, here we go!!  My House Paint Colors:  House of Blues.

To continue along with this magical theme, I decided it was time to do a post about entire house paint colors.  I have been wanting to do a post on the colors we used downstairs in our rebuild (FOR.EV.ER), but time has just breezed by this fall.  There is something truly magical about the way paint color transforms a room, and I wanted to share the names and paint colors we chose for each room.  I hope you find tons of inspiration to begin your 2019 off with a bang!!

***I’ll do a post on How to Choose Paint Colors in the next post.  This post will just contain pictures and names of our house paint colors.***

My House Paint Colors

So you can tell from the colorsnap tool, that our house paint colors have a  blue/gray base to them, with hints of a green undertone.  I personally tend to lean green (because I am a nature lover) – so my paint colors reflect that in their base color.  I also choose paint colors with a blue-base rather than a yellow-base.  Those are the colors I wear in clothing, and therefore the ones I like to work with.

If I had to pick a decor “style” for our house from my color palette, I would describe it as coastal farmhouse chic…..kinda – LOL!!  What do you think?  What is your style?  Let’s get to some colors!!

41 SHIPLAP Ideas: NOT Just For Walls (Part 2)

If you are a modern farmhouse, beach house coastal , or cottage chic kind of girl, then shiplap is your new best friend.  If you didn’t know much about shiplap before Joanna and Chip Gaines started HGTV’s hit TV show “Fixer Upper,” you DO NOW.  It is the perfect combination of rustic warmth meets casual elegance, and can be incorporated into almost any decor style.  If you wan to learn more about shiplap Click  The Shiplap Guide:  Shiplap, Tongue & Groove, and Plank Walls (Part 1).

So, now that you know what shiplap is, you’re probably needing some ideas on how and where to use it- right?  Well, you’re reading the right post.  Here are 41 inspirational pictures to get you motivated!!

***  I am using the term “shiplap” in this post as a collective term that incorporates all 3 methods for getting the “shiplap look”.   These pictures will either use 1. shiplap, 2. tongue & groove, or 3. plank methods (see post 1).  Just wanted to clarify***  SO…..LET’S GET GOING!!


WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP :  1. LIVING ROOM 

source: thetarnishedjewelblog.com

 

 

Use shiplap in the living room behind shelves,  as an accent wall, above the fireplace, behind built ins, or on a TV wall.  It adds just enough texture to balance out smooth surfaces (like electronics, lighting, and curtain rods), and gives the room an instant focal point.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:  2. BEDROOM

source:  private

 

 

Use shiplap with almost any decor style:  coastal, farmhouse, shabby chic, cottage, rustic, modern, industrial, and so on.  Use it on ceilings or behind the bed to add drama, or use it on headboards/ bed frames to add instant character.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:  3. BATHROOM

source: georgianadesign.tumblr.com

 

 

Use shiplap horizontally or vertically.  The horizontal lines add visual width, whereas the vertical lines add visual height.  It looks great behind vanities and free standing tubs.  Afraid to commit?  Use a small amount (like a half wall) around the tub or in a small half bath/powder room.

Shiplap is extremely versatile.  It can be painted, stained, white-washed, left natural, or sanded and sealed – to name a few.  Paint shiplap white for a fresh clean look or paint it dark for a moody, dramatic look.  Leave shiplap natural (knotty and raw) for a rustic look.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:  4. ENTRY & HALLWAY

source: favoritepaintcolors.blogspot.com
(Four Generations One Roof)

Use shiplap on entry or staircase walls.    It gives your guests a glimpse of your decor style and what they can expect to see in the rest of your home. Shiplap also adds architectural detail to small areas, where there is minimal space to place furniture.

Use shiplap in the hallway as an accent wall, or as a hidden door for the powder bath.  It adds a little excitement to an area that is usually left bare.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:  5. KITCHEN 

source: magnolia market (joanna gaines)

 

 

 

 

 

The kitchen gives you a ton of options to use shiplap.  Use it as backsplash, on kitchen islands, in bay window nooks, as pantry doors, barn doors, or wrapped columns.  Use small boards or wide boards to get the “look” you want.  Most common boards widths used for shiplap are 6″, 8″, or 10″.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:   6. LAUNDRY, MUDROOM, & PATIO

source: studio-mcgee.com

 

 

Use shiplap in unexpected places like laundry rooms and mudrooms.  These rooms are not typically seen by guests, but  can still be beautiful 🙂  Plus, you might need a little inspiration while you work- LOL!!

Use it outside in patio/entertaining areas to bring the warm & welcome feeling outdoors.  These areas will feel more like extensions of your home, than feeling separate or cold.

WHERE TO USE SHIPLAP:  7. MISCELLANEOUS

source: foxhollowcottage.com

 

 

 

 

If you still aren’t sure if you want to add shiplap as a permanent structure, try it out as an accent.  It looks great (picture to the left) lying against the wall, and also in a frame (picture below).  It will add the character and charm you want without adding anything permanent to the wall.

 

No matter which one of these shiplap ideas you decide to try, you will have a little taste of how shiplap makes your home FEEL!!  And I know your guests will notice it too 🙂
