Today is my mom’s birthday. She lives in Texas and she’s 91 years old. One of her very favorite things to do–when she was able–was home decoration and bargain shopping. And she could sew anything! I wish she was still capable of making curtains, shopping for just the right lamp or piece of furniture–arguing with contractors. I’ve really missed and needed her this past year.
In March 2014, hubby and I started renovating our home. Let me just say… I’d rather go through natural childbirth…AGAIN! Our renovation ended this month. Yep, one long, miserable, frustrating year later. I refer to it as the renovation from hell and can’t help but wonder how my mother would have handled it. Obviously, I wasn’t too good a taskmaster, and neither was my husband. So in honor of my mom, I plan to take you through our renovation experience, give you questions to ask and things to be aware of and consider, if and when you start your own home renovation. There’s certainly no need for you to make the same mistakes I made. If there’s a particular subject you want me to discuss, let me know. I may be able to share some info. I hope you’ll join me every day during the month of April as I race through the alphabet and share my construction experience.
Mom, happy birthday, and I dedicate my 2015 A to Z Challenge to you.
Welcome to our renovated home.
