His mom passed away in October 2012.
He and she and I were all very close. It has been hard. Not a day goes by that I/we don't think of her.
We moved into and bought her house about 6 months after this happened, and when we did, we made it our goal to "put our stamp" on this house.
Her dad helped build this place. She lived here almost her entire life. When Josh was in a tough spot, she let him move back here. This is where he lived when he and I met 8 years ago. We have lots of memories with this house, but when we moved in, we were determined to make new memories of our own here.
So, we remodeled the bathroom. It was in pretty bad condition before we moved in...the shower was corroding in some parts, had rotten wood in others. The toilet was too short. The fixtures were not our style. We had a vision, and we're just about done with it.
I want to share the "remodel" with you. Some of it was done by us, some we had to have done, like the wainscotting and shower construction.
shadow boxes with starfish in them from Amazon and love how it ties into the beach theme! It also adds different colors to the wall to break up the blue paint color.
Michael's. They were having an AMAZING sale, and everything came out to less than $20! I just love the way this turned out, it looks so neat. I also love starfish, so it
There's the bathroom! Well, there's lots more photos of ugly tiles piled up on the floor, but I think you get the idea. I am excited to share this with you all! Have you recently done any arts & crafty things or remodeled any parts of your home? :)
