How Do You Know When It’s Time To Remodel?

It was about 2 a.m. …We were jolted awake by the most horrific banging crashing noise that seemed to last an eternity. My first thought was Earthquake. While this may seem like a ridiculous thought to some, we did indeed have a small earth quake last spring. Once I realized the immediate danger was over, I volunteered Ted to go check it out. What Ted found was that after six years the three-tier shelf hanging on the bathroom wall had decided to commit suicide. The noise that we had heard was the shelf giving up, sliding down the wall, hitting the top of the toilet, dumping shells and candles everywhere, and striking the other wall before clasping in the floor. The next morning I found a small hole & crack was made in the toilet bowl. The shelf’s final message… “It is time to remodel – NOW!” We called our wonderfully talented friend Michael who runs M&M Painting. Lucky for us, he happens to paint & REMODEL! So we packed our bags and moved in with my folks for a week while Michael’s talented team moved in for the demo/reconstruction. The results were more fabulous then we could have ever imagined. It looks absolutely amazing. The pictures do not begin to show you the amazing transformation(When Ted bought the house in '01...the bathroom was pink...the tile paint he used was pealing off and discolored). If your house is ever demanding to be remodeled, let us know. We can recommend one of the most talented guys in the business!

Oh dear "anonymous said" person....I hope that you are in no way suggesting that I, Ted, was responsible in any way for leaving the toilet seat up. I am a good guy and do NOT do that!!! :) The toilet seat is probably up to see the big crack & hole in the bowl that was created the night the shelves fell down off the wall!!!!! :) Just felt like I had to defend myself!!! ha ha

Beautiful! We purchased a foreclosure home here in Bowling Green and did some work inside like new carpet, paint, pretty much all light fixtures, but no major overhaul---though it's much-needed in our ugly mstr bthrm! So jealous! Hey, what's that fab paint color called?
