A DIY Beadboard Hook Wall in the Kids’ Bathroom

If you’ve ever worked on finishing or renovating a bathroom, you will know that it seems to take FOREVER. Seriously. There are so many little details (and big details) that go into building a pretty and functional bathroom – and they’re all packed into a tiny space. It’s hard work! None of our three bathrooms are done yet, and we’ve lived in Our DIY House for over 18 months now.

Today, I wanted to share with you how I installed this pretty and practical hook wall in our kid’s bathroom and how you can too!

Spray Paint a Door Knob: A Cheap & Easy Update

Don’t you love antique crystal door knobs on old shaker doors? I sure do. We lived in an old farmhouse when I was about 9 years old that had door knobs like this, and I remember loving them even then.

I wanted a crystal knob on our downstairs powder room in Our DIY House. All of our other door knobs are classic oil rubbed bronze ones, but I wanted the one on the powder room to be extra special and glamorous. I looked online for an crystal doorknob with oil rubbed bronze backs, but the only ones I could find were well over $80 (PLUS shipping to Canada, which is often expensive).Continue reading
