intentional girl


  Thanks to the internet (and quite frankly Pinterest for helping me find things on the internet) I am happy to say that “Project: Paint The Bathroom Door” was a huge success. It was difficult to allow the 5 year old to help but since she was so eager, I thought I should let her so she can learn early how do be a DIY‘er herself. Is it really ever too early… Read More

Well I’d love to write a long blurb about the bathroom and all the crazy things we’ve done but I simply do not have te time. BUT, I’m so excited about the progress we have made I have to share with you. Since a picture is worth a thousand words I’ll leave you with photos. Things left are: making the drawers, picking paint color and painting (along with prep work), choose light… Read More

It’s baby steps over here in our home. As we get older things take longer. Whether it’s a project or just eating a meal, seems we should expect the unexpected. Last night Mr Intentionalgirl said, I have some good news and I have some bad news when discussing progress on the bathroom. I have learned to take the bad first, which I did.

I now know why some toilet seats are more expensive than others. There is a difference in quality. Today I purchased a $25 toilet seat that’s a little fancier and sturdier than the previous one. I’m super excited about it. I’m also excited that I installed myself. Check it out…peeing in style over here! Out with the old…

Hardworking male continues to remind said children they should be happy to have a basement toilet. The alternative is… Read More

Today was a fun day. It was about 65 degrees (and let me remind everyone that the date is indeed February 1st) and I just HAD to take advantage of the warm weather. So, once everyone was nestled in their bed I headed outside to finish the hardware spray paint job for the soon-to-be bathroom vanity. ¬†And yes, this renovation is taking a while. In the spirit of being intentional about our… Read More

Glory Hallelujah! I am happy to report that the temperature yesterday and today was around 60 degrees and we were able to completely paint our soon-to-be bathroom vanity. Here are some of the photos that we took over the last few days of our little paint project. We had a little helper ask to come out. We decided she could use her own small paint brush and paint the drawer top edges…. Read More

In an effort to be thrifty – okay, it’s true The Frugal Girl inspired me – my husband and I decided that after paying a plumber (we love you, Rob, and appreciate your expertise, but you were not cheap!) to fix a fairly important pipe in our only bathroom, that it would probably make sense to spend some time and perhaps a bit of moolah to upgrade this important room. So off… Read More
