Office and Laundry Room Update

Back in August we decided to update our laundry room/storage area and turn it into a functional office space for the Mister and a much more comfortable laundry room for myself.  This area is accessed by going out of our house into our carport and then there is a little room off the carport.  It's been cold and ugly and dirty...not exactly the place you'd like to be doing laundry or working, right? Here is a little reminder of what we did to the room in August. And here ...continue reading

I Must Confess: Kitchen Envy

I have kitchen envy.  I live in a 1960's ranch home.  It's solid, brick construction in a rectangle.  I love our house but the kitchen is something I would love to change.  We have old cabinets that were built here in the house and therefore can't be simply reconfigured.  They have been painted and updated with new knobs but that's about all.   They are all one solid piece on each wall.  We have a soffit at the top of the cabinets that I always view as wasted space.   We ...continue reading
