Still practicing real estate as it is an essential industry for the economy. That being said, everything is still very much covered in germs to me! Lol. The things we do for our clients! 😁 (We dress down for virtual tours... don’t judge)!
We love the look of our custome made blue doors. We used this color on all of the first floor doors in our home. It adds a warm-craftsman style and feel to the home. What do you guys think?🤔

🚧ANOTHER UPDATE🚧 Electrical/HDMI installed-✔️ Shiplap installed-✔️ Fireplace brick primed-✔️ Time to paint. We went with a color by Sherwin Williams called “Morning Dew” in a flat finish. We wanted a darker color than our walls ( Repose Grey), but also wanted to add a little blue to it. Morning Dew was perfect! Next step is to install the TV mount, build the Mantle and floating shelves! STAY TUNED...... if you care.... if not, no worries! 🙏🏻🙏🏻😂
So this was my first stab at shiplap. So here is what we did.👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 1. I removed the mantle, (see previous video) and then removed some of the 3/4” plywood wall paneling so that I could install the electrical & HDMI cables. 2. Chipped off two layers of the brick to account for mantel and the TV wall mount. 3. Primed the brick (prepare to paint) 4. I bought ten , 12 foot by 6” wide, nickel gap-primed, tongue & groove boards from @homedepot - they were under $10 per piece! So the total cost for the wood was roughly $70! However, I also returned some stuff and got a $68 store credit card! #boom 🔥👌🏻 5. My dad @can8tiv and I then proceeded to install the shiplap. We had to put a short trim strip at the top to prevent the shiplap from hitting the crown molding! After I prime and paint it, you won’t even notice....(hopefully) 😬 - At the time of writing this, (Monday night)...late AF! 😳 I am planing on finishing the shiplap and first coat of paint on the brick tomorrow. We still have to 👇🏻 • Make and install the mantel and floating shelves. • Paint the bricks...again. 😵🔫 • Install the tv bracket • Remove the wood stove. • Decorate .....................🚧...................... STAY TUNED!

PART 1 of 2 - PAINTING OUR MASTER BEDROOM! 🛌 Quick tips: 1. If you plan on painting your walls, consider getting a corner roller to make cutting in a lot easier! 2. Break the ceiling into sections so that you keep an even coat of paint. 3. Using a 1/2” nap will keep a smooth coat, but will require a lot more dipping. Consider using a 3/4” nap to apply a thicker coat and to hold more paint. 4. Use painters plastic to cover anything that you don’t want to get paint on! It can get messy! 5. Use proper lighting to see how even the paint coat is. 6. Use flat paint to prevent any shine. 7. Paint in the same direction that light enters into the room. This helps hide any roller marks. * I used Sherwin Williams Eminence flat white interior acrylic, latex ceiling paint. ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ PART 2 OF 2 COMING SOON!! Painting the walls- and my top tips and hacks to help you paint like a pro!👨🏻🎨
🗯Today’s DIY was the front door renovarion. I just installed a new August Smart Lock + Connect on the door (which I will review soon)! We will be replacing the entire front door and door frame, so until then, we are keeping the hardware simple and low cost (minus the smart lock of course)😬 My talented wife @jesswahlstromrealtor found an amazing color for some of our interior doors. The color is a combination of three special colors, and cannot be purchased as a fully mixed paint color!! #secretpaint 🤫 Next, I'll be painting the outside of the door and storm door! Stay tuned!!📺📺 📌Thanks for watching and if you liked the video, please like it ♥️ - what information would you like to see included in the videos moving forward? ❓❓❓COMMENT BELOW 👇🏻👇🏻
PART 1 of 2 - Quick update: Office walls are painted, and now I am working on painting the built-in shelving unit! STAY TUNED FOR PART 2 of 2 ✌🏻
Just finished painting both of my boys rooms! I tried a few new products and have a few quick tips that might help you during your next home painting project! Quick tip- If you don’t mind getting a little paint on the walls ( or you want to tape them off), look for a 3/8” NAP roller that paints into the corner. It will actually say it on the package. It is much easier to roll out the corners, rather than paint them with an angled brush! 👍🏻 • Invest in a 14-18” roller for ceiling painting projects. I used an 18” roller. Keep in mind you will need a large paint trough (which is readily available in major retail spots! • When you paint a room, follow this process. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 1. Paint one coat along the trim and window edges of the room. 2. Roll one coat of paint on a section or wall. 3. Using an angle brush, paint your second coat along the trim in the section you just rolled. Breaking each section down like this will allow you to address any drip spots from the roller (which happens often), as well as blend a second coat into the wall. If you don’t break each section up, you run the risk of the paint drips drying and creating more of an issue. • Always apply at least two coats of roller paint. Even with super paint, or cashmere paint from Sherwin Williams requires a second coat! Do it right the first time! Hope that helps!

Project by project, we are slowly chipping away at the renovations! Today I installed air vents and an air return in our unfinished basement. There wasn’t any ventilation down there, so we had a musky smell. We also added a dehumidifier, and now the smell is subsiding and the basement feels much more comfortable. • Stay tuned for more videos!!🎥🎥
