I love this fix for ugly grout. I’ve used it with light and dark colored grout, in this house. This will make your grout look brand new, when cleaning stops working. And, it seals your grout too.

You can restore that grout color without scrubbing. It's really quick and easy. You can even switch to a new grout color, with Grout Renew. My how-to video will show you how easy it is to update your grout color.

I have to restain our front door every few years, because it gets full Texas sun, most of the day. Here’s how I get it to look great again, in less than a day. No stripping needed. 🙂

I wanted some extra chunky Curtain Brackets for the Boy’s Bedroom Makeover. But, I couldn’t find anything I liked in the stores. So, I grabbed some Unfinished Shelf Brackets and turned them into the perfect curtain rod brackets. The best part, shelf brackets already have wall mounting brackets installed. Nice!
