MODERN BATHROOM REMODEL

The project we are currently working on is remodeling our outdated master bathroom. Its footprint is tiny and it had this huge bathtub that took up most of the room.

We decided to replace the tub with a walk-in shower to really maximize the space.

Dining Room in the Making

I really wanted a dining space that was light and bright, somewhere we could gather and enjoy our meal together with friends and family. Up until now we have been eating at the peninsula off the kitchen. Here is the dining room/living room space before we moved in.

When I went back to buy them they were all sold. I still wanted a ladder to hold my growing quilt collection, so I decided to build one with scrap wood I had around. This is it!
