A month ago, we got a call from Lowe’s that they would like to revamp the how-to videos on their YouTube channel. And by “revamp”, they really mean–make them less showy. Isn’t that funny? Awhile ago, they invested in a production company, actors, the works (!!!) to film tutorials on how to do basic bathroom projects like: install a vanity, mirror and lighting, lay floor tile, and install a tub with fiberglass surround. They have since realized people prefer watching real people work out the problems and DIY these kinds of projects. You’ll never guess who they want their real people to be now? That’s right–us!
So they asked if there was a bathroom we could renovate (in the next month!) and film how to do those basic things. While we have our own master bathroom on the agenda, we decided against a tub, and they really needed a video to show how to install a tub with surround. Luckily, our friends (Preston and Corine) opened up their home to us, were 100% on board with the requirements and even gave us free design reign over the other aspects–although we absolutely had them okay everything. Here’s their bathroom before:
I whipped up a design plan in a week, got everything approved and ordered and we started last Saturday and will finish this Friday! I’ve been documenting the process on my Instagram Stories all week (it’s REALLY coming together now!), but here’s a sneak peek at where we’re headed!:
The finished videos will live on Lowe’s’s YouTube channel, but we’ll absolutely have a big reveal here and make sure you know when the videos are up! Until then, definitely follow along on Stories right here! We should be installing the vertical paneling today! I just love a quick turn-around project.
Ps. I definitely googled the possessive form of Lowe’s–crazy!
