A Bit More Like Home

In the past couple weeks, I've been doing a little of this and a little of that... I restained the bathroom vanity cabinet and changed the hardware.

Old Hardware

See all that yucky white stuff on the hardware? The cabinet had that stuff all over it, too. After some cleaning and staining, it looks like this:

Soooo much better!

You can't really tell by the pic, but the new hardware is a two-toned brass finish with a leaf on each side.

I have also started putting my own window treatments up in my living room. I've got my spare bedroom about 3/4 done. I can actually see 4 walls and the windows, plus the middle of the floor. LOL!

That "white stuff" looks like old paint. The new hardware looks quite nice and matches the finish so well. New hardware can really make some cabinets shine. Isn't it nice to put in work in a place that you OWN? You are even getting to the point that you can sit back and enjoy all your hard work. Good for you!
