My husband and I have almost been in our house for a year now, so I thought I would take this week to give a little tour. One of my favorite parts of running My Midwest Is Showing is going to meet the people I interview and seeing their spaces – I'm pretty nosy. I thought it was only fair that I let all of you look around my space too.
We didn't know it when we bought the house, but the plumbing needed a lot of work before we moved in. In fact, we pretty much had to start over in the bathroom – it was unexpected, but the final product turned out great. We put a lot of work into the kitchen too, but the built-in china cabinet and original tile counters were major selling points for us – they're so charming, I could explode.
Take a look around:
I spent hours scraping out the old grout in the counters last summer so my dad could re-grout them. It was worth it, because they're gleaming and look like new now!
I'm usually all about fun colors, but I love white-on-white in our bathroom – it feels squeaky clean.
My dad did the subway tile in the shower and the floor – I'm not sure how people have a house without a GL around.
