Maybe you saw our post from a few weeks ago about our new tile bathtub surround? When I wrote it, I was so wiped out from doing the project that I couldn’t do much more but marvel at the finished product. Which was fun for me, but not so helpful for any of you who(…)
As I mentioned in our last post, I’ve got a chair project on hold. It was a $5 garage sale find. She was in sad shape when we brought her home (last fall!), but we like her curvy lines and know she can be a looker again. I really wanted to finish it earlier this(…)
