Small Powder Room Makeover

One of the big hit with buyers, when we were selling our old home, was the remodeled powder room. It was a very high style room for such a small footprint. I remodeled it before I knew we were selling, but it was a great pop of color coming off a white kitchen. Before: Nothing against ivy but this bathroom was ivy floors, light switches, ivy accents, and peeling wallpaper that made me quite sad. Add a builder oak modified cabinet and a rocky toilet and you basically just had a sad bathroom. Not to mention the knobby faucet...

The long road home.

Great evening to you all! Rereading my last post I realized how much has changed since June. And what a nightmare life can be sometimes. Right after I wrote that post I discovered that I was expecting our second child. As I gleefully planned how I was going to tell my husband, we got some bad news. The bank appraiser wouldn’t approve our loan on the house until the basement was fixed. The sellers wanted us to pay for the repairs or take it out of the credit at closing (they were giving us $5k as a result of...

New Website, New Home

Greetings! Welcome to the new home of Me Do. Redo. I am embarking on a new and wonderful journey, so it only seems fitting that my website takes a journey as well. My family (me, a husband, 2-year-old daughter, and two 70+ pound dogs) decided a few months ago that we were going to move to a bigger place. When we bought our home in 2013, we thought our house was the best. I loved the cute little neighborhood, the easy access to grocery stores, and the potential for growth. Well, a 1,200 sqft colonial seems huge when you upgrade...

The “I refuse to copy someone on Pinterest” Nursery Reveal!

Pinterest. The source of ideas for mothers, party planners, dreamers, and people with tons of free time. Also the source of the slap in the face when you realize that every creative idea you have ever had, has already been done (and in most cases done BETTER). Pinterest can inspire greatness or leave you feeling hopeless. Enter nursery planning. Since no one knew I was pregnant for three months I had a secret board to pin all my baby ideas (we are due in June by the way). I found tons of AMAZING nurseries that I would LOVE to have. I...

Baby Closet Organization!

Organization is my middle name. Not really. My mom had way more sense than that. However, organization is something I love to have and work on. There is something peaceful about having a nicely organized closet. So as I searched Pinterest for baby closet organization ideas and certainly had a bunch of inspiration. Now, baby’s room is little. I mean LITTLE little. As the smallest bedroom in the house, it is 10’x9′. So the closet is a tiny thing too. Perfect for a baby. I knew I needed to get clever with the storage so I went out and purchased a sweater holder, some striped bins, and a closet rod doubler. I managed to find some cheap woven baskets from Lucky Clover Trading since our local dollar store only had scary colors of plastic ones. Set it all up and with the help of my handy label gun, I had lots of storage options in the closet. Including a floor bin for “too small” items on their way out. You can find similar wicker baskets to the ones I used here: Whitmor Rattique Storage Baskets S/3, Java This is the result: As for the closet dividers, I clearly needed something with my theme on it. I doctored up some clipart in Photoshop to create 6 different designs. Read the whole post here. Closet...
