Re-grouting Tile: White Subway and Marble Tile Backsplash

Subway tile backsplash 2

We have had a huge summer to-do list that we’ve been checking off here. I am not going to post about all of them because, honestly, nobody cares about me painting all the trim in the house or touching up paint spots. But some of them are worth sharing, like re-grouting tile. As you know, […]

DIY Pull-Out Kitchen Cabinet

DIY Kitchen pull-Out Cabinet Ikea Match

When we designed our Ikea kitchen ago, we were very happy with the layout. Once we installed it, there was a slight gap {which we had anticipated} between the fridge and the wall. Since this is not a custom kitchen, we knew we wouldn’t have a perfect built-in around our fridge but thought we could […]

Adding Molding to a Kitchen Island Base

Our kitchen island base has been unfinished since October:) Because we bought Ikea cabinets and built our own base, the Ikea panels for the sides were sort of fudged on. They didn’t reach the floor since Mike used 2x4s to build the cabinets up and attach them to the floor so we cut an extra […]

When I shared our kitchen when we first moved in, you may have noticed a big blank space on one side of the kitchen… We left the walls on either side of the window¬†cabinet-free with the purpose of installing some open shelving there. We stopped the upper cabinets on the back wall short so we […]

Installing our Ikea Kitchen Cabinets

It was another busy weekend at the Hyde household. Saturday morning Mike and I started installing the kitchen cabinets. We had assembled the boxes at home over the last couple months {just one a night or so-they only took about 10 minutes per cabinet} and were ready to bring them over and put in place. […]
