I'd like to share our bathroom story. Our home is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath 1951 cottage. Tiny bath. We tore everything out-except the bathtub. So, here's what it looked like when we bought the house-(sorry about the poor photo quality) Oh, that's a picture of dogs playing poker to the left of the shower. How funny is that.
After demolition, which we did ourselves, we started putting her back together. We didn't pay for labor on anything other than our plumber-we needed to replace shower fixtures. We did all the work ourselves. Very rewarding, both financially and personally. This is now one of my favorite rooms. I just love the marble floor-it was a splurge, but I figured it was such a small room the attention to detail would really stand out. This is how it looks now-
Since this picture was taken, we installed new windows throughout the house. I probably could update my pictures-it's on my list.
I'm Ann Marie, a wife and mother of 3 wonderful and beautiful daughters. I’ve been married since 1978. I’m a custom seamstress- I love the creativity of whipping together custom linens and window treatments for clients. We’ve recently moved to an older home half the size of the newer home we were living in. This little cottage was built in 1951 and we love her. This blog will document our journey over the last 2 years of what we started with and where we are now. It has truly been a labor of love. We have done almost all of the work on this house ourselves.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do!
