Rennovation Clean Up: lt It Shine with LemiShine

Sponsored by Lemi Shine. So, eight weeks into our renovation project, we have a hit a bit if a snag. By snag, I mean my contractor has been MIA for a couple weeks.

Big Girl Beds & Girl Room Aspirations

We are in the homestretch of the bedroom renovation in our lower level. of course, I have since ripped down a ton or wallpaper in the downstairs hallway and stairwell, creating a giant mess that will require skim-coating and other jazz, but the bedrooms are almost done! I just need my contractor to show up one of these days to finish the windows and and few small things. Which means ….

At The Zoo

We have become one of those families who have a membership to everything. Yearly membership to the Science museum, Children’s Museum, the big zoo, art center, etc. It pays for itself in less than two visits and with winter being long and brutal up here, we go to these places nearly every weekend. The kids ask every Saturday to go to the zoo or a museum. I figure we should ….

Lately Around the House

With renovations taking up a chunk of space, the rest of the house is in disarray. My temporary office is in the unfurnished living room upstairs. All of my shelving and bins are haphazardly stacked. I have also set up a painting project station in there as well. This is not big room! I can’t wait to get started painting the other rooms so I can begin putting things in ….

Well, with the next baby coming, it is kind of important to rearrange rooms. So we hired a contractor and are splitting the long room into two legal bedrooms. They were already like that ….
