So a few months a ago we uploaded a few of our DIY Master Bathroom Makeover photos onto HGTV's Rate My Space website. A couple of months after that we were contacted by HGTV/DIY's production company. They wanted to feature our DIY bathroom project on a short segment called "America Fights Back" on the show I Hate My Bath!.
To say we were excited is an understatement. We were superhappyjumpupanddowncallmomanddadrightaway kind of excited. So we emailed them some before & after photos and a short summary of what we did & how much the makeover cost us. They said that we had some great shots & that we would be in touch soon.
Then we never heard back.
After a few months we just figured that they decided not to use our bathroom on the show & we forgot all about it.
(yes, we were so sad & disappointed)
Then two weeks ago we are sitting at home watching TV, and we get a text from our friend Adrienne who says, "OMG are ya'll on DIY??!!". Of course, we looked at each other & we were like "whaaaaat?!?!".
It was so funny & random. If she hadn't been watching the DIY channel at that moment, it's very likely we would have never even seen the episode.
It was a short 30 second segment that showed our before & after photos while the host (Jeff Devlin) gave a little recap of what our bathroom remodel entailed. Nothing crazy. No video. No head shots.
(everyone seems to ask, "did they show a picture of you guys?!")
Nonetheless, we were very excited.
The episode is called "Laundry-tastic Bathroom" & it will air again on the DIY Network:
February 3rd, 2013 @ 1:30 PM E/P
February 24th, 2013 @ 7:30 AM E/P
Now, the only problem is getting the episode uploaded on our blog so our family can see it too....(most of them don't get the DIY channel & the I Hate My Bath! website doesn't seem to show recent episodes)
We'll try to take a video of the TV with our phones & then upload that instead.
We know we're not on a Young House Love level or anything....but it's a start, right? haha
