Handrail for front steps

 Add an interesting, quirky handrail to your front steps for a little pizazz on the exterior. These were made and installed by Portland artist and metal worker Todd Littlehales.

Renovating a bathroom sink-- Before and After

This dated, do-it-yourself, bathroom sink area needed an overhaul. There were mixed sizes of tiles and funky, 1950's era, mirrors and fixtures.
A new porcelain sink is supported by a furniture style cabinet. There is white wainscoting on the wall. A partition between the sink and the toilet was removed to open up the room. A wood framed mirror (actually an old window with the glass removed and mirror panels installed) and a small wooden cabinet, for storage, complete the look. Now the bathroom compliments the rest of the 1914 vintage home.
