January is here and, hopefully by now, all the holiday trappings are packed and stored. We have ushered in a new year and with it comes the pull to refresh and renew.  All the magazines are showing housekeeping supplies in pretty citrus colors, nifty ways to organize our closets or drawers and crisp fresh linens for our beds and baths.  All of this is to motivate us to clean up, get organized and prep for the year ahead...and I love it!

Every January, I take stock of things in my house that need attention.  I make a list, prioritize, consider my budget and get moving.  I encourage you to do the same. Some of the best advice I ever got was "plan the work, work the plan."

With that in mind, we welcome you to read our first SCLgram of 2017 and hope to inspire you to take on new projects.  This month we showcase the often neglected secondary bath and share some renovation tips with you.

So read on and get busy.  Don't forget...Spring is right around the corner and then we will have a whole new list of projects outside the house!

Warm regards,

Well, this summer, I shook off the apathy and I finally tackled three projects I had been postponing for several years...renovating our secondary bathrooms.  Like most renovation projects it was time consuming, messy, and cost more than I thought.  However, we got through it, and so can you.  Here are a few tips I can share...
