DIY Pipe Shelves

Seriously, this is a quickie!  Who doesn't love one?  You'll knock this project out in an hour including stain if you don't mind the smell.  I shared the stenciled floor details here and the rustic vanity plans here,  but for the shelves,  I cheated and ordered the brackets on Amazon.  This saved me a trip to Lowe's or Home Depot, saved me several aggravating conversations with all of the men who work there and assume women are always wandering aimlessly waiting to be asked if we need "help finding anything?" (what's with them???)  and saved me the money I would no-doubt spend on crap I stumble upon and don't need.  (Ok, bad photo alert, but this PR is camera shy).

Rustic Wood Vanity: A pedestal sink surround

Hi There, last post I shared my inexpensive (as in almost free) powder room makeover, although the stenciled floor may be the showstopper for me, I decided to break up the bling and find a vanity that was rustic and had some character.  I had no interest in taking on the removal of that sink, not now.  So I went on a quest to find a pedestal sink surround that resembled a built in vanity.  I searched the web for a solution to the dreaded builder grade, zero-storage sink, but I came up dry ;)  So I decided to build one.   Apologies for the bad photography here, there is zero light in this little P.R. !!

Paint a Tile Floor & a Rustic Powder Room Makeover

Hi folks!  I'm sharing my cheap and simple rustic powder room details today.  Our powder room was a neglected little place. The floor was dated and (like all projects I start) I decided to experiment.  I wanted the floor changed and needed storage because we actually use this little powder room, a lot.  I was determined to put a big band-aid on this room.
