Buying a home is an interesting process. You view dozens, maybe even hundreds, of homes searching for the one that will fit most of your family’s needs. That’s the interesting part – no single home will fulfill everything on your wish list. A kitchen is perfect in one house, but the bedrooms are much too small. Another home has the perfect yard, but not the attached garage you covet. Our home meets our needs perfectly and I have been updating it to match our wish list. Thanks to warm fall weather, the DIY projects have continued as I am preparing for Thanksgiving. Here is my list:
- Finish painting trim. The previous owners were fairly rough on their home and the trim is showing significant wear. In addition to giving it new life, painting it white makes our rooms look larger by brightening the space! Our trim requires one thick coat of primer to mask the yellow tint of the wood, and two thick coats of white paint.
- Refinish interior doors. I’m on a mission to change the wood in our home from honey oak to an espresso finish. I was surprised at how simple it is to make this change. After removing the hardware, I sand the doors. Three coats of stain, one coat of poly, and they look completely different!
- Install new hardware. We’re getting rid of the brass and putting in satin nickel hardware. The satin nickel gives me the updated look I want while replacing the rusty old brass. New hinges and lever door handles give our home a fresh appearance.
- Stock the bathrooms with Charmin Mega Roll. With all the DIY projects I’m finishing up before Thanksgiving, it doesn’t leave me with much time to devote to other preparations. Thankfully, Charmin Mega Roll is equal to 4 Charmin Regular Rolls, so stocking the bathroom with it saves me time and I know my guests won’t run out! Charmin Ultra Strong Mega Roll’s design is inspired by washcloth-like cleaning and strength. Charmin Ultra Soft Mega Roll provides a soft, cushiony clean that is 75% more absorbent than the leading bargain brand. Whether you’re an Ultra Strong or an Ultra Soft fan, make it a mega roll and you’ll save yourself time this Thanksgiving!
Curious just how much toilet paper is in a Charmin Mega Roll? My kids were, too!
I think that ambience plays a big role in the holidays. It’s exciting to look around our house and see the changes we made and the decor we chose. Our house is becoming the home of our dreams! How are you making your house a home this year? Which toilet paper will you stock up on – Charmin Ultra Strong Mega Roll or Charmin Ultra Soft Mega Roll?
