    How to Install Instant Granite on Your Counters

    Happy day, friends! Today I’ve got a fun DIY project comin’ at ya! If you follow me over on Instagram (and if you’ve recently checked out my previous Fall 2018 One Room Challenge Post), you’ll know that sadly, not every DIY project goes well. I had painted our master bathroom countertops, and then sealed them with an Epoxy called Glaze Coat. They looked GREAT! Fast forward about 4 months – YELLOW. Yes, I had yellow counters. Why?

    How to Transform a Builder Grade Door with Fusion Mineral Paint & Molding

    Good news and bad news, friends! Bad news – I’m home sick. I think I finally caught what’s been going around, and it is 0% fun. The good news, though, is that after sleeping until 12:45pm today, I’m getting a little work done here on the blog. I’ve got about 2 hours though, and then it’s back to bed for me! Today let’s chat about builder grade finishes. They are usually sufficient to do the job, but they are also sufficiently BORING. Take every door in our house for example.
