I think it is important to note the timeline on most of these projects – especially this one. I know sometimes when I watch a remodeling show I think, Wow – how quick that seemed to take! That is so nice for them but… Why is ours taking foooorrrrevvvver?!? Just as those shows are condensed into 30 min. – 1 hr. highlights, our posts also only show the highlights. There are definitely frustrations with many of them.¬†The thing we always say together during¬†our projects is that it usually looks worse before it looks better. And yes… patience is the key to many of them!

Our goal was to finish our Master Bath within the first 5 years of moving in. Sharing one bathroom as a family of 6 was sure cozy.

This project took¬†3 years, and now it is complete. The funny thing is, the kids still love to congregate and use our bathroom now. So it sometimes feels like we are still all sharing one bathroom. ūüôā

Here’s a look back –

 

Year 2013

Here are some before pictures. We may have posted them before. They definitely have me going down memory lane. When we first moved in the bathroom and closet were separate and both very small. Tater couldn’t stand under the shower head. Our decision was finalized about redoing this bathroom when we went down to studs at this end of the house HERE at the beginning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This shows the area a bit better. There were 2 doors. Bath on the left. Closet on the right. We closed off the door on the left. And added a pocket door on the right. Our bath and closet will now be together providing us a bigger space.

 

Insulation in.

 

Drywall up.

 

 

 

Plumbing reworked.

 

 

Tater added a window. There was no window before. This has been one of my favorite things. Love the natural light!

 

Both of our dads helped. 💙

 

 

Shower base in.

 

Year 2014

Flooring going down. Tater spoiled me with heated flooring.

 

Matt Gentes laid our tile in most of our house and did a fantastic job.

 

We also added baseboards and a toilet.

 

Moved in – April 2014

Our makeshift closet.

 

Year 2015

 

We got our glass shower surround, and our closet moved to the basement for the time being.

 

Matt came back and added our shower tile on the back wall.

 

 

We began planning what we wanted our closet to look like. Since it was connected to the bathroom and would be out in the open, we wanted to keep it nice. We found these 2 cabinets at Sam’s Club. They work great for storing some of our clothes. We began coming up with ideas on how to hang clothes, etc.

 

 

Our drywall was torn in a few places (around the can lights and vent fan). We wanted to add some character to this space as well. Tater began adding some wood to our ceiling that we would paint white.

 

 

 

Adding it up into our skylight. We also trimmed our ceiling.

 

Year 2016

Our vanity came!

 

 

The water line and drain pipes interfered with the bars on the back of our vanity, and the pipes were definitely not lined up correctly. We had not picked out our vanity before to know, and so here was another dilemma. As most projects go, one step forward and two steps back. We took down some of the drywall to rework pipes.

 

Repatching and on the path to make it nice again.

 

Vanity in and faucets hooked up!

 

Yay for running water!

 

Our attention then turned back to our closet. We lifted the cabinets up to the ceiling and Tater began building drawers to go underneath.

 

I also found a matching shower bench at Home Goods. 

 

Tater had never made drawers before, but they turned out fantastic. We have 4 deep drawers now providing great storage.

 

These were our curtains for quite awhile. You’re jealous, aren’t you? The trash bags actually worked out rather nicely for the time being.

 

I do have to say that I loved when we finally got blinds. Tater also made the wood valance.

 

He surprised me and threw in a little trinket tray while he was messing with wood.

 

Next up, mirror and vanity lights. Tater made the frame for our vanity mirror. We decided we wanted 3 lights. Notice that there are only 2 lights coming out of the wall. Looks like more drywall is coming down. ūüôā

 

A vent pipe was right in the middle – in our way… reworked that a bit.

 

If their is one thing I’ve learn about Tater with home projects, is that he is very thorough. He does not rush through anything. He thinks it through and is precise with the work he does. He does not do¬†anything halfheartedly. He gives it his best. The math markings on this wall were very¬†thought out. We had to tell the glass company where we wanted our cuts, and we didn’t want to be off.

 

Mirror and lights were hung. We are enjoying our finished Master Bath!

We did several wood projects below:

First of all, Landon made a Farmhouse Address Sign for our house a few summers ago for 4-H. We got the idea online and wanted something similar for our place. Here are the details if you are interested in making one!

 

 

Materials:

  • Old barn door wood
  • Stainless steel screws
  • Caulk
  • House #s
  • Plastic bag
  • Potting soil
  • Succulents

Tools

  • Table saw
  • Compound miter saw
  • Circular saw
  • Drill
  • Drill bits
  • Pry bar
  • Hammer
  • Chisel
  • Tape measure
  • 4-square
  • Caulk gun
  • Pliers
  • Awl
  • Rubber mallet

 

Here is what the old barn wood started as. We used a chisel, hammer, and pry bar to remove old hardware and nails out of the wood.

 

 

 

 

Then we were able to cut it to the size of our liking using a circular saw and table saw.

 

 

 

Next, he measured the reclaimed wood for the planter box.

 

He used a 4-square to mark the wood.

 

Then we used a compound miter saw to cut the wood for the planter box.

 

He drilled partial holes in old door supports and used screws to make the sign more sturdy as the old nails had loosened over time.

 

 

Then they attached the planter box to the sign using screws.

 

Then he ripped more barn wood to the thickness of the sign.

 

They used the compound miter saw to cut wood to make a frame.

 

 

 

 

They secured the frame with screws.

 

Next up were the house #s. They used an awl to mark the location of the drill holes.

 

 

We caulked the back of our numbers so that insects could not make nests and burrow in behind the numbers.

 

We drilled holes for the numbers slightly smaller than the stud that was on the back of the numbers. After that, we used a rubber mallet to tap the numbers in place.

 

Looks like a sign! Now the fun part for me.

 

We lined the planter box with a plastic bag to keep the soil moist after watering and not drip mud onto our house siding. We filled the bag with potting soil and planted our succulents. 

 

Ready to hang on the house!

 

It was a fun project, and he ended up getting Best of Class. I love seeing it hung on the house knowing they made it in love for me. 

 

While working on the address sign, another wood project was going on.  Tater made me a huge planter box for our front yard. You may have spied it in our house painting post. It was not yet painted. He used my parents old siding. We have used their siding to make so many things! The girls enjoyed using it to play in for the day.

 

 

 

He also added a nice wood back to our dinner bell and hung it on the house. 😍

We had ordered some wire from Vintage Wire and Supply for our light project. The company sent some fun extra wire for us to enjoy. Our son was excited to use the wire, and the guys used it to create a vintage hanging light together. They ended up writing out the steps to use for his 4-H presentation.

This¬†is what he put together… just in case you’re interested in making your own fabulous vintage hanging light. ūüôā

Tater thought this table up on his own, and I LOVE how it turned out!

As a gift to each other for our 9 year anniversary we remodeled our bedroom. We were ready for something fresh. Our once red curtains had started becoming more pinkish color and were white on the back side from fading. Here is our bedroom makeover before and after.

We were ready for something bright and less heavy. We moved the dark pieces to our son’s room with the collection they belonged with. We brought our mirrored pieces up¬†from the studio and used those for a dresser at the opposite wall of the bed.
That left us with no bedside tables. Tater said he would figure something out. He sure did. He started with the wood circle that we used in the background of THIS shoot. He got them out of the hospital dumpster when he was working one night. ha-ha. He spent a lot of time sanding them and the wood is now super smooth. Now it was just deciding on a base. Somehow he thought up the idea of constructing a base out of pipe. He drew up 3 different base designs I got to pick from. I love the airy feel and industrial look it gives.

The corner with the new chair is a new fun area for us. We used to have a pack in play in that area, but now we are able to drink coffee, do our devotions, or read books to the kids there. We love it for a place to just get away sometimes.

With the new sheer curtains we are now able to have a soft glow of light from the patio shine into our room. It is so enjoyable. We are thankful for our new room!

Project #2: Frame It

We were clearing out some things in our studio one night, and we came across some frame corners (samples of frames) that we are not selling any more. I asked Tater if he wanted me to just pitch them, and he said he thought he could come up with something to make out of them. Sure enough… thus the new frame you see below.

We also have been framing our pictures from our shoot taken last fall from the fabulous Julie Campbell Photography. Thank you for the wonderful memories you have given us Julie. We love having your amazing talent displayed throughout our home.
