We recently completed four product videos for the Home Depot. What that means is when you are looking at, for example, the Glacier Bay 1.28 GPF toilet, you'll find our product video giving you more information about it.
In addition to the toilet, we also did product videos for a caulk gun, glass cutter, and HLVP spray gun. We were determined to connect all four of these random products into one cohesive mini bathroom makeover. Here's how we did it!
First up, replace the toilet in Steph's bathroom. This is original to the house and despite changing out all the inside the parts, it still leaked. Time for an upgrade. We started by removing the water by flushing and then by using a toilet plunger to push out more water. The remaining water in the tank and bowl were soaked up with puppy pads.
We were so happy we were able to incorporate all four products in the mini bathroom makeover. Our biggest takeaway is how easy it was to install a new toilet! Who knew? We would not hesitate to install another. We were especially pleased that the new toilet completely covered the old toilet footprint. We didn't have to do anything to the floor other than remove the old caulk.
(As a reminder, this is Vicki writing this about my mother, Steph's grandmother.)
At the time of this post, we have been in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic for eight months with no end in sight. Everyone has a story to tell about this time period and how it has affected them. During the first five months of the pandemic I lost both of my elderly parents. Two weeks before my mom died, she traveled to my house to spend a week with us. It was an honor to be able to care for her during that time. While she was here, Steph got the email from The Home Depot about this product campaign. We were able to share with my mother the news. She was thrilled--so happy and urged Steph to immediately contact The Home Depot and say yes to the campaign! Both my parents were so proud of the work we do and never failed to take the opportunity to tell us.
So mom/grandma, this post is for you. Thank you for always believing in us.
