BOTB 6.10.16

By Kate Riley June 10, 2016

Weekend greetings! We’ve made much progress this week on the house we’re renovating! I’m excited to see the changes occurring, all the walls have been retextured with a smooth finish and today they will be painted. The old flooring is gone and the floors are prepped for the new luxury vinyl plank, we start on that tomorrow.

Now that I have my blank canvas I can start choosing materials for the kitchen and bathrooms, finally my favorite part! Below you’ll find a few favorite projects I spied around the web for this continuing ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series, enjoy!
