I can’t get yard work done in 🌧 weather... All this rain has pushed my outdoor kitchen project off as I have asphalt removal and grading to do. I have some of the products I’m considering using on my @amazon list (🔗 in bio). 👢 by @michaelkors 🌂 • • • #rainedout #rainyday #mud #yardwork #landscape #yardscape #rainboots

yard work made this... I smell, I have a blister from using the shovel without gloves, and my back hurts. I gotta go get cleaned up. 🧖‍♀️ • • • #diy #yard #yardwork #dirty #sweatequity #landscapedesign #yarddesign #outdoorkitchen #exteriordesign

What do you think about open shelves in a kitchen? What about if they are in your kitchen? ⏲ • • • #kitchendesign #kitcheninspo #homeimprovement #interiordesign #functionaldesign #kitchens #kitchendisplay #marthastewart

My pie may not be the prettiest but it is tasty...

Woohoo! Tile has been grouted. All that is left is the use the grout-caulk where the tile meets the countertop and seal the grout. For some of the areas it was easier to use my hands to fill some of the grout lines instead of a grout float. When tiling, do not fear getting dirty. 🧺 • • • #diy #homeimprovement #tile #kitchen #kitchendecor #interiordecor #interiordesign #kitchendesign #sweatequity #neat #pretty #simple #subwaytile

I had a super awkward situation in a small bathroom to tackle. This 1 bdrm/1ba apartment has a bathroom where the sink was in front of a window. THERE WAS NO MIRROR!!! The previous tenant just rested a small mirror against the window. Needless to say, the situation could use improvement. After trimming the window out again, I was able to find a mirror that would just fit. I used L brackets and shims to screw the mirror to the trim and put a block of wood on both sides at the base to preset the bottom of the mirror from moving when cleaned. The window provides great natural light and since it was at 48” high window I didn’t block much. 🖼 • • • #homeimprovement #DIY #sweatequity #bathroomdesign #interiors #mirror #mirrormirror #chickswithtools #interiordesign #bathroom #vanity
