I frequently hear people my age say "I wish they knew how close we were" while talking about their nieces and nephews, or even their own children. When I was in the 8th grade, my parents decided to adopt a baby despite their old age (dad was 49). #BabyJakey as my dad called him was the highlight of all of our lives; I mean growing up as the youngest child I always wanted a younger sibling. The bond that this lil dude and I had while I was in my adolescent years was incredible; we did EVERYTHING together. Much has changed, but I can still ALWAYS rope him into things like hitting up the #RatchetRemodel late on a Saturday night. I'd dare say "I wish he knew how close we were" but I think deep down he knows it, but he's too proud to admit it right now. #Adoption #AdoptionRocks #AdoptionWorks #PapasShop

Paint a 900 sq foot shop by hand they said. It will be fun they said. At least I scored the premium paint at auction for $7 a gallon! #RatchetRemodel #PapasShop

My first car ever was a Mercedes M-class. That bastard could fit anything in it. We laughed that we could fit 3 coffee tables, an oversized chair and an ottoman in the back. (Oh yeah, sister was safely buckled in the rear seat as well) Sad to say, but I think the ol beeper has met its match. Today, this Lexus accommodated a dining table, sofa sleeper, coffee table and bench we scored from the overstock outlet. #LexusGX #ratchetremodel #ratchet #homedecor #CitySlickerTrashHauler #WhoInvitedTheClampetsToThe801

Spending the morning putting up some faux siding in the bathroom. Took some 3/8" underlayment and cut it into 5 1/4" strips. Tacking it up with 1/4" overhang. Super cheap. Super easy. That's #Ratchet #TanBathroomRemodel #RatchetRemodel #Shiplap #BathroomRemodel #HomeRenovation #Remodel

Had to throw a filter on this because the lighting is so bad but here's progress on the #TanBathroomRemodel #ratchetremodel #subwaytiles #granitecountertops

Today I didn't get all too much done that can be shown that says "well that's progress". Ha. But here's what I'm hoping to turn into my own version of #shiplap in the #TanBathroomRemodel. All I've done is take 3/8 underlayment and sprayed three coats of gloss white over it. It can't be seen in the picture, but the variation in the wood looks gives it a very unique look. Next step is to cut to 5 1/4" strips. Stay tuned tomorrow #RatchetRemodel

Enjoying this outdoor space at #mommayoungburge 's it's amazing how wonderful some backyard design can go. Oh yeah, and this happened to be done mostly by my brother and myself (hence the reason it's taken 6 years 😂) #outdoor #outdoorpatio #patio #patiodecor #patiofurniture #patiodesign #firepit #backyardfire #ratchetremodel

In an attempt to prep for the weekend projects, I carefully pulled off the mirror above the sink. I wasn't so careful when I set down my lantern full of succulents. #busted ah well. #TheAloeHadToBreathe #OhShit #BobTheBuilderWasTerrified #TanBathroomRemodel #Bathroom #BathroomRemodel #BathroomDecor #RatchetRemodel

Got hooked on this #succulents train. Cut a hole in this guy to turn him into a planter to brighten a good friend's day. Love you @willow654 ! #planter #planters #planterboxes #planterior #succulentlove #succulentlover #succulentaddict @miraclegro #hippo #ratchetremodel

Nothing too huge happened today, just finished up the dark grey paint job and purchased new linens. $75 worth of towels is all I'm into this remodel as of now. Also, we have a special guest appearance from Bob the Builder. Bobs been studying up on his pedigree (and been watching the #westminsterdogshow ) He insists he heralds from the working class; that's up for debate. I will give him credit though, he's usually quite helpful when it comes to plumbing (preview of what's to come this weekend 😉) #bathroom #bathroomdecor #bathroomremodel #TanBathroomRemodel #BobTheBuilder #americanbulldog #americanbullies #ratchetremodel

The #TanBathroomRemodel is making some slow progress, but I'm committed to doing a little each day. Haha. So far this project hasn't cost any money since I already had the paint. Tomorrow I'm doing a second coat of grey and then I'll be ready to spend some 💵 #remodel #paint #bathroom #bathroomdecor #bathroomdesign #bathroomremodel #ratchetremodel #greybathroom #homedesign
