Home Improvement – Bathroom Redo- Step #1


Walmart has a new website all about helping you make basic home improvement (DIY) projects simple, called Projects Made Simple.  They are providing step by step how-to videos (around 75 to 100 of them!) like painting an accent wall, installing a towel bar, and repairing a running toilet.  Accompanying each video is a product list and downloadable project guides.

I decided to try out hanging a towel bar. I actually got so inspired after thinking about which project to do that I totally redid the kids entire bathroom!  It’s something I’ve been wanting to do and this just pushed me to get the ball rolling.  Does that happen to you?  Hahaha, you do one thing and then it snowballs into ten more home improvement projects?  Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to!

So, I watched the video on how to hang a towel bar.  You can see the video here:

After watching the video and printing the project sheet, I headed out to Walmart to pick up the supplies I needed.  I actually decided to pick up a towel bar and two coat hooks that matched the towel bar.  My thought was that I would hang the towel bar kind of low (so the kids could use it and it would be the right height) and the hooks would be perfect for the kids to hang their own towels (and easier for my littles).

One things I did differently was that first, I marked off where the studs in the wall were so I could decided if I could hang the towel bar on studs or if I would need to use the anchors.  It just happened to work out that where I wanted the towel bar and hooks there were studs.  Other than that, I followed the video exactly. Easy Peasy!

I just have a few finishing touches and the whole bathroom will be complete!  Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing the full makeover this week!

  7. Currently it appears like Expression Engine is the
    best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  8. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I
    think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.

    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
