DIY Bathroom Update

I recently updated our half bath using mainly paint! I painted the faucet, slate tile, walls, vanity...nothing was spared! I am so happy with how it turned out and even more so with how it is holding up. 

Here is the before picture:

And here is the after! The process is detailed in my Instagram stories, so check it out there!

There is also a material list and description on Hometalk.

How to not hate doing laundry

What is your relationship with laundry? Do you hate it, do you love it, have you made peace with it. I fall into "Made peace with it" camp.  I know for myself that if a project starts to feel huge, I tend to avoid it. I am a much better one bite at a time girl. This is how I approach my home projects and what I have found works best for tackling laundry too.

So are you ready to know the secret to taking the hassle out of laundry? It is to presort the loads. I have a 3 bin sorter in my closet. We sort by cold wash, warm wash, and hot wash. I also have a separate basked for delicates. The presort makes it so easy to see which bin is the fullest and knock out that load for the day. It saves using your entire living room to sort the laundry or worse, not sorting. If you wash everything unsorted, then the really dirty stuff doesn't get clean and the nice stuff gets worn out. IMHO. 

Here is a round up of great hamper options to get you started!
