Bryan's Latest Home Project

Bryan has had a couple weeks off so that he could be around to help me after having the baby. It's been great since I have had a bit of a rough time with getting over post-partum pre-eclampsia. He has been wonderful doing almost 100% of nighttime baby duty, (and there has been ample amount to go around.) In spite of taking care of the baby and I, he decided that while he was home he needed a project to keep from getting bored.

While wandering the aisles at our local Lowe's, he came upon some tile that was on clearance, and decided that would make the perfect project to provide him with a baby duty distraction during the day. heard that right. We have a two-week-old baby and my husband is currently tearing up the kitchen floor to replace it. Last night as he moved our refrigerator into our living room, I was momentarily thinking that perhaps I was crazy to have agreed to let him start this. But he has done a fantastic (finished) job on all our other projects, and I trust him. So have at it, my dear!

Here are some of the BEFORE pictures:

He's just finished up the trim this evening, and I'm glad since he's barely slept or ate for the past two days. He tends to have tunnel vision when he's working on a project. It looks so great, though. As you can probably tell from the "before" pictures, our little kitchen really needed the face lift. The floor was pretty bad. Now it looks FANTASTIC! Great job, honey!! You are amazing.



  1. Congratulations!!! You didn't mention Junior's name, weight, etc for those of us who don't know. I'm happy the baby's here, and can definitely sympathize for the sleepless nights. I only have 9 days before I'm due with #3, and am anxious. After you have your first one, you can't imagine how you ever lived without that wonderful gift from Heavenly Father. -Julie

  2. p.s. I wish I had a handy husband like that! Mine does a lot of cooking and cleaning though, so I feel really lucky.
