A Little Steel Roots HD Backstory...

I am often asked what brought our family to Chapel Hill.  In the summer of 2012, our daughter, Grace, had an accident at Young Life Camp that altered the lives of our entire family.  After multiple long-term stays in the hospital, our pediatrician recommended that we visit Duke Medical Center.  In June of 2016, our family moved from Northern Virginia to our new home in Chapel Hill.  The road to NC was a bit bumpy, but we are blessed to call Chapel Hill home, and are thrilled to report that Grace's health has continued to improve.  


The whole family played a role in transforming “Bathrooms by Bonnie,” into a home decor and furniture showroom.
