Where I've Been Hiding & Our Home Reno Preview


















Hey folks! Long time no blog. I hope you're all doing well!

I have had quite a bit going on in my blogging absence- life has been quite different for Simply Salvaged. My poor little blog and a lot of other things that I love have had to take a back seat to a full time job and renovations to our house...
Wait. What was that? Did I say home renovations?

Yes!
Yes I did. 

I do love painting furniture and for a while I had a really hard time letting that go... letting my business go and finally, after about a year in Texas, accepting that painted furniture just wasn't in God's plan for my life in Texas.

Then... THEN... I found a new love when we bought our house...

A new project to fill that creative void. I always said that once we got a house, I'd paint again. And yes, paint I do. A few pieces of furniture, but mostly walls, ceilings, cabinets, molding...

It needed sooo much work!! So many updates to be done!!


The entire house was a stark white, dirty, and completely blank canvas.
 A DIYer's dream!!

We've made quite a bit of progress over the past year. After moving in, we immediately wanted to tackle the kitchen. Before we got too involved, though, I had this brilliant idea to "quickly update" our front bathroom.. paint a little (a lot), re caulk, clean up the tile and grout... However, one thing lead to another suddenly this...
 
Turned into this...

...and just like that, our kitchen project came to a screeching halt.

Since then, we've done some smaller updates around the house (when I say ''smaller'' I mean- we didn't rip the walls out) until recently, we decided to pick up where we left off in the kitchen.

...and guess what!! I'm really excited to share our projects with you!

I hope you've enjoyed your ''before'' peek into our home! Stay tuned for more!

Thanks for reading,

Some consumers believe that buying kitchen units in an expert home cabinet company, getting range hoods in the technology store and buying basins and taps in an equipment store to mix them is cheaper. In fact, this technique is not necessarily cost-effective, since independently purchasing often can't enjoy the very best discounts from the vendors and you've to cover yet another installment cost to the kitchen cabinet companies. https://brandedkitchen.com/product/rustic-metal-galvanize-6-bottle-holder/
