    Adding Trim To A Bead Board Ceiling

    Starting projects…totally my jam…finishing projects…not so much.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who is a stellar project starter but then lets them kind of fizzle?!  Anywho, I needed to take some “workshop” photos for our shop listing on Scout Mob and our Etsy office space was kind of looking like this: I […]

  • Out In Trim Force

    Nail Baseboards Into Studs

    When we last left off in the guest room renovation saga, it looked a little something like this: Walls up, joints mudded, painted ceiling and walls, and freshly installed wide pine flooring.  It was already starting to look better, kind of like Kim Kardashian once she takes off all that makeup.  But what would make […]

    Installed Board & Batten In Entry

    The board and batten is up people…I repeat…the board and batten is up in the entry.  After a couple of hours worth of installation thanks to the boy toy husband, we officially have a board and batten-ed up entryway.  And I’m not gonna lie, it kind of feels like jail in there…not that I would […]

    Next up on the master bedroom renovation…more affectionately known as the renovation that never ends (not to be confused with the song that never ends)…the window trim.  Colby cruised through the window trim installation and finishing like a mob car chased by the cops.  Before I could snap a solitary picture, the window trim installation […]

    Old Trim & New Trim

    We’re just going to keep this little “how to fix old stuff” train right on rolling through.  Yesterday we talked about how to restore old hardware and today we’re going to dive right in and do the how-to-fix-old-trim post.  But first, let’s say hello to our basement dwelling friend, Mr. Einstein, who’s hanging out by […]

  • A Caulking Time Lapse

    Window Trim Closeup: Before

    In celebration of having all…I repeat…ALL of the trim caulking done in the parlor, why not a little blog post about it.  So I thought it would be cool to do a time lapse video of how big of a difference caulking trim makes in an old house, more specifically a really old house sporting […]

    Painted Parlor Trim Looking Into The Living Room

    The parlor trim is officially primed…well kind of…there are two newly installed pieces of trim that need to be primed.  While Colby was away last weekend, Angie played…with paint that is.  Not only was I able to knock out all the painting of the walls, I was also able to put a couple coats of […]

    Nailing In Staircase Riser

    It should come as no surprise, but bead board and I are tight.  We’re talking peanut butter and jelly tight, or Monica and Rachel tight, or Ben Affleck and Matt Damon tight.  Yeah…that’s tight all right.  If I could have it my way our whole house would be covered in bead board…bead board ceiling, bead […]
