I don’t know about your house, but at mine when it rains…it pours.  This is one of those pouring weeks and it’s only MONDAY!!!  We got the infamous 5 am phone call this morning telling us to go back to sleep because we had a snow day.  Twelve fresh inches of the white powdery stuff that I’m not too fond of had fallen through the night.  Things continued to be bumpy while I was sitting on the couch having my {Read More}

Now, if you remember, our home is just over 100 years old, {Read More}

This has been a LONG winter!  A LONG almost project-free winter.  It’s too cold to spray paint or work in the unheated garage, and quite honestly, it takes a whole lot of effort to even leave the house these days.  Because of that, I’ve been staring at these same four walls for a long time and dreaming of projects I can get my hands into.  Well, a couple weeks ago, My Better Half and I had the house to ourselves {Read More}

Wiring A Wall Sconce With A Pull Chain

The renovation on my boys’ room is long done (thank goodness), and we are all enjoying this new space. So much went into making this room what it is.  From tearing out the walls, insulating, dry-walling, painting, and laying new flooring to totally transforming some pretty nasty furniture into really useful, attractive pieces.  The end result was well worth all the work. Lighting is key for any room makeover and this room was no different.  I showed you how we {Read More}

Refinished Milk Paint Vanity

If you’re new to Saving 4 Six, I was given my grandmother’s 1920s bedroom suit.  I refinished and milk painted the dresser already.  You can see that post here.  The bedroom suit had been sitting in a barn for about 15 years after going through a fire and suffering some water and smoke damage. This is what it looked like before.  The soot was pretty thick on here.  You can see the marks from the doily that was on the {Read More}

This has been a long time coming but I’m very happy to announce THE MUDROOM REVEAL. This all started here with a leak that caused extensive damage. There was need for new and more insulation, new electrical work, and new flooring.  So, everything had to go.  The room went back to the studs. At this point, things could only get better as we started putting things back together. Ok, enough introduction… Here you have it…My New Mudroom. Here is how {Read More}

Finishing Touches on the Mudroom

We are putting the finishing touches on the mudroom.  Curtains and pillows are the task at hand.  I made a trip out to the fabric store last week looking for material to make curtains and pillow covers and was blown away at how expensive material can be.  Several of the home decor fabrics were $44.99 a yard!!  I was carrying around a 40% off coupon but still yet, when I wanted 8 yards of the material…that was still completely out {Read More}
