I've always loved the look of stained concrete. Ever the ambitious one, I decided to tackle my back patio. It was super duper easy! If you want to try it, contact me and I'll give you the "step by step".

Don't like your bathroom cabinets? Paint them!!

We bought our home newly built in 2006. I'm still living with some of the builder's choices, but the bathroom cabinets had to GO! They were white and blah, blah, blah. I painted them chocolate (the exact color is Ralph Lauren "Howard" in satin finish) and added oil rubbed bronze handles. Eventually I will change out the faucets (they are chrome, ick!) but for now, the room has a little more character than what I started with!
