Hey there!

We're finally witnessing the results of all the hard work that we've invested into our yard these past few weeks. The grass is green and growing nicely, all those bald spots that we had on the lawn at the end of winter are almost completely covered, and the plants are growing nicely with many of them full of flowers.

Our job right now is keeping the yard looking good, and that mainly consist of cutting the grass and trimming the beds and borders.

The Secret to Easily Install Curtain Rods

May 16, 2019

Well, I have a little secret to make that install go effortlessly.

Master Bathroom Repurposed Mirrors

May 06, 2019
It's been almost a year since I finished work in the master bathroom. We're delighted with its outcome, maybe that's why it seems like we've been using this, the new bathroom way longer than that. 

There were quite a few projects packed in this bathroom makeover that kept me super busy last Summer. Transforming this space from the floor to the ceiling generated quite a few big and small projects that for the most part were shared with you at the time. However, a couple of those small projects, like this one, the repurposed mirrors, were pushed to the side. Last week, when I found these pictures, I decided to bring them to a post.

My initial plan was to build the frames or boxes for the mirrors, but with all the projects and blog obligations I had at that time, I decided to take an easier route

getting rid of big and damaged bushes and planting new ones.

Well HELLO!!

I'm back with an update to the work we completed last week in our front yard. This time, all the efforts went towards updating the flower beds. 
We started off by sprucing up our entire yard about three weeks ago; we removed some small bushes that lined each side of the entry, applied fertilizers and added grass seeds to the front and back yards. This is the first time we're using an Eco-Lawn in the backyard, its a drought tolerant grass that's earth friendly, sustainable and perfect for kids, pets, and high foot traffic areas.
