I think it’s a safe bet that there’s at least one of us out there that’s eyeing up our home and dreaming all the big things for these rooms. But in order to do some of these things it takes money and a lot of work to do them. I’m here to tell you that sometimes little changes can make a big difference. All you need is some really awesome Beauti-Tone paint from Home Hardware and some small fixtures to freshen up any room in your home.
It’s finished!! Feels like it’s been taking some time, but once you see how much we had to do you will understand why. Everything that was here when we moved in was original. We loved that we could learn and change some things to personalize our home a little more for ourselves.
Drew had SO much help from one of his friends, taking apart the floor and installing new floors. Once they finished all that hard work. We decided to give the walls a fresh new coat of paint. Along with a new railing and furniture to give this little space new life. We have never done floors before. So Drew learnt a lot during this process. Excited to try and tackle others in the home now!
Turned out just the way I wanted it to. Loving every bit of it. The after part that is! Take a peek below…

Our kitchen sink was in need of an update. To the wandering eye you probably wouldn’t think so, but as a busy family, the more and more we used our sad little faucet we knew it was time to freshen it up just a bit. We turned to a very trusted brand that I had the pleasure of meeting back in September at Blog Podium, BLANCO Canada.
It was literally love at first sight for me. The design, colours, looks and not to forget the quality and craftsmanship just exceeds expectations. I love the dark look and sleek feel in our already darker kitchen. Which in the future if we decide to upgrade to a brighter and fresher area the sink will be very versatile and be long lasting with the flow with a newly updated kitchen. Future goals! Don’t tell Drew;)
Our proviso sink and faucet were built in by the previous owners of our townhouse, so we’re not really sure how old it was or the brand they had used. Drew did this little/big project all on his own with no previous experience at all. I’m actually so impressed with how quick it was to change up and install. All of the pieces were in tact, measurements were perfect and everything literally just fell into place for us.
We went with the ALTA Dual Finish faucet in Chrome and Cinder. Pulls out to a very nice length with two different spray features. All very powerful! For the sink we went with a very elegant VISION Dual Sink in Cinder as well. It’s a very easy sink to clean and any left-over residue hides nicely within the colour even if you might have totally forgotten to clean it up!

This home project feels like it’s been taking us forever, in reality it really hasn’t. But because it was on our “list to do” since finishing our bedroom it feels over due. Either way with our hectic schedules we managed to do a little something just to freshen it up a little bit and have it flow nicely with our master bedroom. Our hearts are longing to re-do the floors and vanity but with our rookie moves we’ll slowly start to learn the process there and eventually change those up to….
