Updating old Bathroom Sinks.. while re-using old vanities

Happy Cyber Monday! Today I am sharing another little bathroom update to our Master Ensuite bathroom..We have been on quite the roll in here. It was a mission in itself to get my hubby on board with all these updates.. but once we were re-doing the shower he couldn't just ignore the grungy old sinks that we use on a day to day basis. To save money and make my hubby happy we opted to leave the existing vanities and simply changed out the old sinks and faucets. Click to see more info and sources.

Master Ensuite Shower Reveal

Yay!! We finally reno'd our shower!!! Since we purchased this house a little over 2 years ago.. I have been itching to install a new shower. First because the shower was dated and not to my taste and secondly, it was getting older with grout cracks and a peeling, cracked ceiling. And soon enough we would find we had a LEAK too!! A while back I replaced all the old disgusting grout and realized at that time we were really getting down on the lifespan left of this 14 year old shower. It was all just a band aid for our looming water leak... One day we were all sitting in the living room when my hubby looked up and sure enough we had wet water marks all in our ceiling. The timing couldn't of been worse! I had just given birth to our son. In the end the shower turned out exactly how I had always envisioned it..  See all our shower details by clicking below...

Building a pull out Vanity Drawer

Today I am sharing a little weekend project we were up to recently.. I don't know about you but I can NEVER have to much storage.. for me I have a lot of various cosmetic items and never enough space to store them. Our house was built 14 years ago and for some strange reason the builder never installed drawers.. a girl needs a DRAWER!! so luckily my talented hubby built one for me and I did all the pretty work.. Here is how we made a Vanity Drawer for our Master Bath..

Garage Sale find Sign Tweak

I found this wood welcome sign at a garage sale during the summer.. It was way to country for my style but I loved the arch shape at the top of wood.. and for only $2 I thought why not?? So once I got it home I had to find a wall for it (I am running out of prime wall space!).. I had the perfect empty spot in my Kitchen.. so I wanted it to be Kitchen themed.. so keeping it slightly country.. more french country and updated I went with a Farm theme. Farm Fresh Apples only 25 cents.. Now it adds a touch of vintage charm to the corner of our kitchen.

Family room Board and Batten wall

For a while now I have been very bored with the paint colour in this room, its the original paint to the original owners. It's hard because it's not an ugly paint colour, it's just that this is an open space to the rest of our house and it has 20ft ceilings so its just a lot of BEIGE! Originally I wanted to have the whole room painted, but when we got the quote it turned out to be quite costly due to the high ceiling height. So instead I came up with other ideas to brighten up the look.. one being updating the big drywall media unit and adding a bit more interest and brightness by adding a Board and Batten pattern to our curved wall..
