A Man Pink Door

Coral Door Hardware

I believe in two kinds of vows when it comes to marriage…the wedding vows that you get up and recite in front of all your friends and family…aka…the pretty vows.  Then there are the real vows.  Colby and I have them.  For instance, Colby vows that if we ever split up, he HAS to take […]

Pantry Finishing Touches

Kitchen Pantry Before And After

Let’s finish this pantry, shall we?!  Well…kind of.  The pantry is signed, sealed, delivered done, fully organized and functional.  But after going through all the photos and photo editing and whatnot, I was left with 30+ pics of “finishing and organizing the pantry”.  Uh…long blog post say what?!  And since I value sleep these days […]

Where No Doorknob Has Been Before

Securing Installation Kit To Door

That’s right, we’re going places we have never been before.  We’re blazing a trail, bushwhacking it if you wish, and taking our Etsy office door from doorknob-less: To officially doorknob-ed: Yes, that’s right.  Tonight, we’re learning how to install a doorknob where no doorknob has been before.  This step is long overdue.  What’s it been, […]

Three Hoots For Gray Owl

Bathroom Vanity Painted And Assembled

Ding dong the witch is dead vanity is done. And all it took was two solid weekends of priming and painting.  I wish I was kidding.  And of course, in true Angie fashion, I anticipated total painting time of about four hours max…wrong!  More like four hours max just to prime the body of the thing! […]

Guitar Hanging

Guitar Hangers

Tonight’s project is quick and dirty, kind of like…wait….I’m not gonna go there…not tonight.  That’s more like a late night Saturday night post and not a late for a Thursday work night as I’m blogging away and really dreading to wake up and go to the office on Friday morning post.  So anyway…we hung some […]

Finally It’s Happened To Me

Kitchen Closet Bracket

Is it stuck in your head too?  You know…the nineties pop song?!  Let me help you remember.  I introduce to you the musical stylings of Ms. CeCe Peniston circa 1991: It’s coming back to you now, isn’t it.  Welcome to my head where that song has been on perma repeat for the last 48 hours […]

Operation Eyesore

Red Nightstand In Master Bedroom

Now that I’ve let your eyes rest for a few days from the neon-ness of my good ol’ nightstand (read more about it back here) that’s been with me since high school, you’re ready for the big reveal.  Now you can REALLY appreciate the nightstand’s new “outfit”.  Ta-da: Shiver me timbers…thar she blows!  And it’s […]

How To Restore Old Hardware

Restored Door Knobs

When we last left off in the dining room door refinishing project, we had finished priming and painting the door.  Meaning we still had to fix the door casing, prime and paint the casing, and refinish the door hardware.  Originally, I had planned to spray paint the hardware oil rubbed bronze.  But when I told […]

My Boy Blue

Painted Door

Blue!  You’re my boy!  Or should I say door.  But let’s back up a step.  We’ll get to the blue door in just a minute.  But you see, we have this basement door.  It’s in our dining room.  And one side of it got a coat of primer a couple years ago.  That’s it.  End […]

Slide Slide Slippity Slide Bolt

Installed Slide Bolt

Woo to the hoo….we are FINALLY done with the front door refinishing.  Cue up the band folks!  The final project…install a slide bolt to keep the top of the door closed up real tight (especially useful for those chilly December evenings we have here in Maine).  As mentioned back here, our 100 year old door […]

Our New Old Door

Much Improved Hallway & Door

And now, live from Angie & Colby’s home, we bring you the much anticipated front door makeover.  And what good makeover wouldn’t start with showing you the ugly before shots?  So here is our door all cream and cracked and gross: Would this be the appropriate time to remind you all that Colby broke the […]

Weapon Of Choice

Gross Gold Door Knob

I’m a big fan of tiny projects that make a big impact.  Especially if that tiny project involves painting.  Even better if that project involves spray paint, my latest painting addiction.  So what’s the fix?  Our exterior door hardware: It was old, gold, gross, and did I mention gold?  Ewwww.  Our weapon of choice?  ORB […]

Fancy Don’t Let Me Down

Fancy Faucet

Armed with a small fortune in Lowe’s gift cards from the recent holidays, Colby and I trekked into the new Lowe’s (all the way to Bangor!) for a new faucet.  The prerequisite…it had to have a pull out hose in the faucet.  Colby may be be the best plumber in our house (really no competition […]
