Mr. Handyman

My friend Jessica's mom is hosting a fun thing called Things In My House Thursday. I can't think of any fun random thing in my house, other than a slew of toys. So I thought I would show y'all my new shower that my new found handyman made me!!!

My hubby is trying so hard to become a handyman and guess what, he's getting pretty good at this stuff. After Peyton was born we noticed that some tiles in our shower were leaning in. So eventually one of them cracked and Dustin pushed it a little to see what was wrong and several tiles fell in and broke. So unfortunately we found out that the board, insulation and other things were mildew/moldy. YUCK!!! So Dustin partnered with a friend of ours and they redid both showers. His was similar to ours so they started with his. On ours they had to get out the old tile plus the concrete under it and the shower pan. Then start over with a new shower pan and new concrete. Dustin has finally been working on the new tile and it looks great. He's run into a few problems here & there but for the most part it has gone smoothly. I looked for a before picture that I took of the shower when we had just bought the house, but I think I deleted it. So here are some pics of our shower now.

I wish Matt would decide to become a handyman....

The exact same thing happened our shower and it is still not working. It has been like 3 years.

also, it doesn't have to be random things.

It could be sentimental things or things you like to do or things you think everyone should have or whatever- I went through my house last week and took a bunch of pictures of things to blog about.

And how nice and clean and new.

I also like your wall color above the shower.

Thanks for participating; it's fun to "go in" other people's houses!
