Replaced the old thermostat with the smart Nest thermostat. Had always been wanting a smart thermostat and after we bought the house, it was the perfect opportunity to get it.
The previous thermostat used to be an Aprilaire thermostat. I believe it also controlled a humidifier. However, there is no central humidifier I could find, therefore, it was only control temperature.
Old house and extremely limited shelving in Closets, sounds familiar right? Well, I decided to take care of storage by installing shiny new wire shelving in all the 3 closets we have in the house.
Here are some photos of the Master Bedroom closet. I know what you are thinking, it’s so tiny! Yes Sir or Madam, this is an Old house. Back then they did not have large walk-in closets.
So before image:
Step 1: remove the wood shelving. And then you are left with hideous wallpaper showing in many areas. Bad luck, because now you have to scrape the entire paint and wallpaper…
Step 2: scrape off old paintwork and wallpaper. Be sure to wear a mask. I also used a rotary Sanding tool and manual scraper. Very tiring exercise and messy!
Step 3: New paint. Hurray!
Step 4: install new shelves
Step 5: hang some clothes and enjoy!
Had a water damaged base of the Under the sink Cabinet. As a result, it was sagging and couldn’t support anything on it. I decided to replace it. It turned out to be a great small project.
Bonus: also ended up installing a new Garbage disposal!
