Hi. Just call us Young House Love.
Ok. Not even close.
But, considering the fact that we'd never
even picked up a hammer or paintbrush before this year,
I'd say Mr. Ruby and I are doing ok in the home remodel department.
To be honest, we actually looked for a house that needed
a little bit of TLC and some cosmetic work.
You know, so we could make a house our home
and all that jazz.
Well, let me just say, we got more than we bargained for.
I mean, don't get me wrong, it could have been much worse.
However, our sweet little "home" had a bit more
in mind than a few paint touch-ups.
Instead, due to some unforeseen circumstances,
we had a construction zone in our
living room, 2 bathrooms, and basement...
all at the same time.
Baptism by fire, my friends.
But, my husband is amazing. And my handy-dandy cousin
is amazing. So after lots and lots of work (and maybe a couple
swearwords), we got a new bathroom.
In addition to this one.
Two new bathrooms in 4 weeks.
Most exhausting thing I've ever partaken in.
I don't suggest it.
Go on, check out the fruits of our labor.
This is what happens when you buy a house built in 1959.
The big mistake.
Still have some finishing touches to do, but I'd say it's quite the improvement from our Caribbean-infested bathroom.
