Fancy Pantsy {DIY} Wainscoting

Laundry Room FAIL!

Painting A Front Door in the Friendliest Town in the US

It’s been one year since we moved to Sammamish, WA {officially voted friendliest Town in the US} woot woot…and we haven’t been happier.   We purchased what we considered to be our dream home, 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom, 2 car garage and unbelievable amounts of closet space, especially coming from our tiny “206” Townhome ..this place certainly feels like a mansion.  But … Read more
