Mustache cookies!


It’s time get our fun on again. Enough of this dawdling with names, layouts and such. Let’s get back to the business of doing cool stuff. So…I have sponsors now. Epically cool strangers that pay me to have their little button in my sidebar. I work for them. Well, seems to have forgotten that I do stuff FOR THEM! And, yeah…I am not feeling like a reminder needs to happen. Nope. Cause, I got this in the mail yesterday… Oh yeah baby…I’m all over that! Just because I don’t have mustaches all over my blog does not diminish my love of them. They are just…quirky. Love! Two new things happened ...

updating the sink and vanity with paint.

Painting a sink can make a huge improvement in your bathroom for very little expense.

Working with a budget of miniscule proportions, I was challenged with how to update my bathroom sink and vanity.  This bathroom is the ONLY full bath in the house. Guest and Personal all in one. It has to be pretty and practical.  And  once again I turned to paint. It really is the miracle “drug” of home improvements!  Painting a sink, I've discovered, can really make a huge difference! There are the before pics.  The vanity base was okay. I liked the hardware. It just needed to be freshened.  But, the sink…ugh. I used the same paint that I used on the tile. ...

painting tile.

Painting tile is actually not that difficult and can make a huge difference! from

   You might be wondering why I ever got the idea that painting tile might be a good idea. Well...The top is my bathroom at it’s absolute best. About 2 weeks ago.  I have been working at remodeling it…on a serious budget.  And when I say serious, I mean, almost nothing. Bathrooms are gross and stinky.  No matter how much you clean them, they just never seem to be all that pretty and clean.  At least when you have kids.  And just eat away at the cash when you try to give them a makeover.  They need all sorts of special sized containers and shelves, as well as special ...
