Yesterday was a good day.
The tile guys finished grouting!
I was downstairs dancing a happy dance on the tile all night.
Seriously better than a trip to Disneyland!
How awesome is this tile?!
Tile manufacturers have made huge strides in the world of faux wood ceramic tile.
We put ceramic wood tile in two other parts our home a couple years ago and it looks like tile that is trying to chameleon itself in to wood.
In other words, you can tell it ain’t wood.
This ceramic wood oak tile from the Tile Shop will fool you. It really looks like wood.
Now you’re probably asking why we just didn’t put in real wood if I was so dead set on going for a wood floor look.
I’ve got a little basement-flooding-phobia.
It’s been said, “Not if, but when…” in regards to your basement flooding (yeah, that sucks),
plus I’ve known too many people who have had this catastrophe happen to them so ix-nay on the ood-way (pig-latin for NO WOOD!).
I have had a serious crush on this framed inset medicine cabinet from Restoration Hardware FOREVER.
It’s in baby!
And it’s a darn good thing too. This will be the only source of bathroom storage in the whole bathroom.
I’m doing something a little different for the vanity (if my miracle wood worker can pull it off)!
This white herringbone tile was sort of a happy accident.
You see, I bought a different tile a while back for the shower niche that was AWESOME…or so I thought.
When we put it in it didn’t look right, it didn’t fit right, it didn’t smell right…it just wasn’t right.
I could have gone out shopping again, then wait for shipping, the re-schedule the tilers…this had snafu written all over it.
We had some subway tile left over so I told the tiler to cut each tile in half length-wise then cut the ends at an angle.
We laid it out on the floor and three tile guys all said they didn’t like it and tried to talk me out of it. I told them I LOVED IT and put it up.
They changed their mind after they saw it installed.
Next up, lighting, painting, shelving, and plumbing. Stay tuned!
