“Good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” Marilyn Monroe
I know I wrote about this yesterday, but I am really proud that something is fully completed. This was my bathroom before. Well technically not before because the previous owners had the bathroom just behind where I am standing. This is the corner that will become my bathroom. The window is gone. Above it now is a triangle window to let in more light. The plywood is gone. Instead a wall now divides the room into 2 spaces: our bathroom and the bedroom. The angled ceiling still exists. At it’s peak a wall comes down to the floor to make a toilet closet. A friend asked to see pictures of the completed project, but to my own eye, it does not do it justice unless you see the before pictures. My plan is to hang before and after pictures of the whole house in the corresponding room, with this quote. It’s funny how words find us when we need them the most. I stumbled across the Marilyn Monroe quote near the beginning of this project. It was attached to ruins of a castle and the rehab that was occurring there. It stuck with me through the changes that occurred both within this house and within myself. Experiences and challenges have a way of shaping us as individuals and as couples. My husband and I have now weathered 4 major rehab projects together. This has by far been the largest and most impactful. We are stronger, our family is stronger, and our house is stronger 🙂 Better things have a way of falling together.
