Easy Home Updates

There are several types of home remodeling projects that you can undertake. Some of them cost a good bit of money while others involve a minimal amount of funding and time. You can get home renovation quotes from companies that are willing to help you with any project that you have in mind in any area of the home.

A minor bathroom remodel is something that almost anyone can do without a lot of assistance. You can replace the tub and shower, or simply paint the room in a different color and add a few new accessories. Changing the hardware on the cabinets and installing a new faucet can make a world of difference when it comes to the look of the bathroom. Consider re-glazing the tub if you don’t want to bother with a complete replacement.

Landscaping outside the home can give a new look. Add a few flowers that will brighten the exterior of the house. Spread mulch in front of the porch and other areas so that there is a base for the flowers and bushes while giving the area a professional appearance. Choose plants that are one color, but use various heights for a staggered effect. A fountain is a charming focal point that is easy to install in the front yard.

The kitchen is often the easiest room to remodel. Change the facing on the cabinets and the drawers as well as the hardware so that you immediately see the difference when you enter the room. If you have the money in your budget, consider adding granite counters as they will last longer. You could also go with a trendy theme in the kitchen, such as open shelving. This involves placing shelves without cabinets on the walls, giving a view of what you normally keep inside the cabinets that isn’t usually seen, such as elegant dishes. Wood cabinets can be sanded and painted to give an updated look. A little white paint and black handles and drawer pulls go a long way in the kitchen, giving a modern appearance while still keeping the charm that you enjoy.

Our Bass Guitar

Many years back, my husband plays the bass guitar like theĀ allen woody. But for the past 6 years, he hasn’t been able to play much bass because he has been preaching God’s word Sunday after Sunday. I still remember the bass guitar I bought him 14 years back and I still see it being used during the worship services on Sundays. Indeed, bass guitars are a good investment if you have someone who loves to play it at home. It doesn’t fade and it doesn’t get broken easily. It enables one to practice their talents week after week. I don’t regret buying him that bass guitar, though it was pretty costly 14 years ago.

2016… what a blast!

November 1 is here! And it’s 55 days before Christmas! Where could have the days gone? I can still remember that it was only the beginning of the year and now, we are already on the last stretch of the year.

My 2016 has definitely been a busy one and a transitional one as I faced multiple changes in my life. Thankful to the Lord for the all the new opportunities He gave me but more thankful that we are all healthy and enjoying doing life together as a family.

How about you? How was your 2016?

Ukulele Lessons

My daughter learned to play the keyboards after studying a few online videos and practicing by herself. Though she has not mastered the keys yet, I believe that she will thrive greatly in music as well as she thrives in visual arts. That is why I wanted to get her this pink ukulele for this coming Christmas! It is perfect for her.

Maybe I should also consider sending her to music school to fast track her learning, what do you think?
