RIDGID MEGAMax - Reciprocating saw, right angle drill, sds

If you're in the market for a new set of tools or thinking on upgrading to a more powerful set, you have to give the new Ridgid MegaMax system a serious thought. It took Ridgid a few years to bring this multi-functional system to its fans and well, I'm glad it's here with the excellent quality of all Ridgid power tools, lots of power at a great price.

The MegaMax uses one power base and three detachable heads (sold separately) which means, you save money because you're not buying the same base for each of your head tools, but you also save space in your shop.

Fall Home Tour

September 12, 2018

Hello friends,

It seems like summer flew by this year and all the plans I had at the beginning of the season had to be chopped because I've been so behind! Don't you feel the same? Once we reach July the months whiz by faster and faster and in no time we're preparing for the holidays. Well, it happens to me every. single. year.

However, I love when we start getting ready for the colder months. The enticing smells wafting from pumpkin spiced goods, store fronts lined with colorful leaves and bountiful harvests, and the promises of season sales gets me in the decorating mood. Of course home tour week is a great opportunity to take advantage of my decorating needs. And I'm always more than happy to be a part of the Fall home tours hosted by the gracious Marty from A Stroll Thru Life.

A very special welcome to you if you're stopping by from Amber's beautiful home over at Follow The Yellow Brick Home.

Most of my Summer was spent in this space (pictured below): my bathroom.

Bathroom Renovation: How to Install Real Shiplap

September 07, 2018

I know the Shiplap trend is on its way out. I also know that many of you are already tired of seeing wall after wall being covered with shiplap boards. But truth is, since I first started planning this bathroom makeover, like two years ago, I knew that I wanted to have a featured shiplap wall in here. You can see a good amount of bathrooms I gathered inspiration from, when I shared this post right here.

It took me awhile and perhaps I'm one of the few that still likes this treatment. For me it works in small applications. I've only installed it in my office space above the bench, using thin plywood.
Here in the bathroom, I already installed it on the ceiling, I love how it brings the eye all the way up the room. Those pine shiplap planks were installed to stay there, they were glued and double nailed to fight gravity and the test of time.

Bathroom Renovation: The Vanity Area

September 01, 2018

 Hey guys,

I'm back again, trying to speed up this bathroom reno. It's almost done, kind of 95% done, but I've been waaay behind on organizing, editing the pictures and of course writing the posts. I don't even know where the videos I was planning on posting to Instagram are. Lost in the void :/

Anyway, earlier this week I shared this little space that

I'm so happy at how this project turned out!

Is not every day that you find wasted space waiting for you to transform it into something so useful!

That's exactly what happened here, as you can see in the picture below... A big chunk of wall doing nothing. Well, holding a towel rod. And right behind the wall a good amount of space. πŸ€¨

This entire project was easy to accomplished, but there were so many little things I had to complete that it felt like it's taking a whole lot of my time and energy!

This is a long post with lots of pictures where I'm trying to detail all the work done. Most likely you can

How to plank a ceiling (Shiplap on the ceiling)

August 21, 2018
shiplap boards painted with a roller paint

Well, yeah, this is another bathroom progress post. ;)

The flooring was the last project in this bathroom, you can read all about it right HERE. I should've continued the updates with the installation of the wall tile, but the thing is, that project couldn't be completed until tackling this, installing a plank ceiling - a shiplap ceiling.

This was one of those projects that happens mid-way renovation. At first I thought on doing nothing to the ceiling, but after getting a closer look while doing all the electrical, I changed my mind.

The picture below is the before and after the electrical work that was done a few weeks ago.
Ha, what a difference!! πŸ™„

Isn't he cute??

That's our Louie, our little Yorkshire Terrier and I have to apologize for waiting too long, almost a year, to properly introduce him around here (he's had his debut on Instagram πŸ˜‰).

Well, this post is a tool review, but here I am showing you pictures of this little guy that you haven't seen much on the blog.

Let me tell you very shortly why. - Louie is our first pet. We've never dared to have a pet because any pet would
