Happy Friday

This is how I felt this week!

We can do it! (image credit:

I was able to accomplish a lot, but I'll just post about two :)

*We bought our house in August and it’s been one DIY project after another. This week I tackled removing the handicap bars from the guest bathroom. ((Still need to replace tiles))

Project one: The remove a silicone seal on tile.

You will need Goo Gone, a flat head screwdriver ((ok, my hubs said I was crazy and next time just use a putty knife. So maybe you want to try that instead.)) And an all purpose cleaner. I like Mrs. Meyers Clean Day.

Be sure to open a window. That Goo Gone goes right to your head! No joke.

 (As you can see on the mirror below, it needs some diy love too. 

I will be updating that in the near future. 

I'm thinking add molding, frame it, and make it pretty!)

muhaha and he said I couldn't be done! 
It did take me about an hour, but all the silicone seal crap was gone!

Project Two: The Polka Dotting of the letter P

I went to Michaels and found letter hooks for 90% off. NINETY PERCENT OFF! That is just crazy! So I got one for my niece, she should be making her debut to the world any day! 
While I was bored last night, I grabbed some pencils and paint and went to town making polta dots on Miss P's new hook! 

*Dab the eraser end of the pencil in some paint and voilà, perfect little polka dots. 

 ah, the week is now done.
Cheers to everyone!
