Our bathroom reveal

Just a little reminder from where we came from. This is what our bathroom looks like when we moved in. Ugly plastic drawers, no shelves, no mirror, no lamps...nothing! I would love to say that I made all the upgrades in a weekend...but the true is, it took me 6 years! Better late than never! Even if I have still work to do in this room, let's say it's going in the right direction. It always takes me time to decide what I want, and as I try to make everything on a budget, it involve a lot of DIY. Which I love to make but it takes more time!

This what our bathroom looks now! It's kind of cool to see the evolution! Don't you agree? It really motivates me to keep working on the house!

As I said it involves a few DIY, here is the list with a link to each ones if you want to have a look.

I almost forget, the tutorial to make this modern coat rack is HERE.

It looks pretty nice all clean and bad it never last. I have still a lot of work pending in this room, like a door, a lamp for the shower, and the bathtub. Nothing I can DIY I think. I also added a pic of the (missing) bathtub and the mess in it...not as pretty as the rest but you can see how it is really!

3 Tips to choosing a great residential plumber in your area

Plumbing services aren’t hard to find. You can come across plumbers offering their services through a website, on a TV advertisement, your local newspaper, fliers, and other types of print and electronic media. You can also ask for referrals from your friends and family members. With so many options, how do you decide which one to hire?
A great plumber gets the work done in a timely and professional manner. When you’re working with a professional, they know the value of time and money and how to respect your home. It’s easy to just choose whoever charges the least so you can save money. But because plumbers work on important parts of your home such as your water supply line and waste disposal system, it’s necessary that you choose the right plumber. This doesn’t mean he/she charges the least or the most, but the one who knows what he/she is doing so you don’t have to spend for more repairs in the future.
Here are three tips to keep in mind when choosing a great residential plumber.

Good communication. For any type of installation or repair, good communication is essential. This starts during your first contact until job completion. When there is good communication, both parties are able to relay their messages across and are able to reach a mutual understanding. The plumber should be able to tell you what’s wrong, what needs to be done, and how much is the estimated cost. He/she should be able to explain things in a simple manner, using terms that you understand, and answers whatever questions or clarifications you may have.

Licenses and experience. Having a license to do plumbing jobs means the plumber has the knowledge and skills that are required for plumbing jobs. While most states do require plumbers to have licenses, some states don’t. An updated license also means the plumber has taken certain certifications or exams to keep themselves updated.  Consider also the plumber’s experience with plumbing jobs. Some may have taken vocational training or certifications while others may have learned based on their experience while working on the job.

Pricing. When it comes to giving you an estimated cost, the right plumber will be able to give you a correct estimate. Some plumbers already charge for their initial visit so make sure you ask this prior to scheduling a visit. Don't immediately jump in if it’s too low or immediately turn it down if it’s too high. Consider estimates from other plumbers as well and see how close are their estimates from each other. You need an accurate estimate so that you can budget the expenses and not be surprised when it’s time to pay the bill. Ask also for any additional expenses that you have to be prepared of in case there are problems that will arise.
Whenever you have water related problems in your home, it’s good to have a reliable plumber that you can contact right away. For your plumbing needs, you can call the plumber in McKinney to fix whatever needs to be fixed. And when you’re satisfied with the job, make sure to give a good recommendation.

How to turn a jar into a pretty vase

I love to have flowers around the house! I should buy them more often, they make me happy and give the room a festive touch. I like to display them on the bar, as we have an open living space, I can see them from everywhere. It's also one of the safest spot, far form kid's plays. I think that a nice vase is as much important as the flowers in it. I would love to change often, but I don't want to spend a lot of money buying vases, and I don't want to stuck my storage space keeping a dozen of them. A good option is using a a jar and customize it! I already made this fun glass upgrade awhile ago, and on Dream a Little Bigger, I show you how to create a pretty scalloped vase. It's quite simple to make, and it can be a great option if you need to make several flower vases for an party or a wedding.
