Historic Home Remodel (2)

Today, I’m sharing portions of a lovely old 1920’s era home that was recently remodeled for resale.
One of the upstairs bathrooms featured a clawfoot tub and rainshower shower system. I wish I’d seen the home in it’s before stage. All the updates were utterly charming.
Especially the bathrooms.

The Anatomy of a Box Pleat Bed Skirt

Box pleated bed skirt (9)

The thought of making your own bed skirt can be a bit daunting. Especially a gathered bed skirt made for any size larger than a twin.

The process is really not hard. It’s handling all that fabric that can be bulky and tiresome.

A box pleat bed skirt takes less fabric than a gathered skirt and is much easier to handle.

Today, I’m breaking down the anatomy of an unlined, box pleat bed skirt.

Aka…the next best thing to a true How-To post since someone didn’t take any pictures during the process. Continue reading

Master Bath Valance & Cafe Curtain

Master Bathroom Makeover and New Window Treatment

Master Bath Valance & Cafe Curtain

I should probably call this an update rather than a makeover because technically the changes I’ve made to our master bath are purely cosmetic. But new paint, window treatment, rugs and a couple of towels made a big difference! So, it’s a makeover to me.

My number one concern, beginning this process, was working with the existing tile.

Two undertones that tend to fight each other.  Continue reading
