Basement Bathroom : Reveal!

Sorry for disappearing the last two weeks. I had a very thorough and detailed plan to get the bathroom completed, and this post was supposed to be making its debut much much sooner. That was until our house was ravaged by some ungodly disease that made gross stuff happen to your body (aka Norovirus). Let’s just say, that new toilet bowl and I have gotten to know each other pretty well, and I’m thankful it was brand new and clean and not grossing me out as much as the old one would have been.

Basement Bathroom : Week 11

Welp, here we are, week 11. I've worked a few hours nearly every day trying to get to a point where I could call the tile installation officially complete. I cut the last tile yesterday afternoon and I immediately downed a bottle of champagne upon completion (I wish). I am so happy to have made it to this point. Tiling the floor has had it's challenges. Thankfully the floor tile is rather large so it probably went much faster than if I had used a smaller sized tile. The whole process READ MORE

Basement Bathroom : Week 10

Heya! Oh my geezus (Gus' latest catch phrase)! Here we are at week 10! It's been so long since the last update, I feel so guilty. The holidays threw a wrench in my plans so we will just ignore them, and not even count them as part of my timeline. We'll just skip right over Christmastime and begin week 7 right after the New Year. Can I just say again that I am soooooo looking forward to wrapping this up! At the start of week 7, I was still waiting for the floor tiles to be delivered from READ MORE

Basement Bathroom : Week 6

Is it over yet? No? Shit. People keep telling me that it seems like this is all coming together really quickly, and I'm like "really?" To me this has been lingering on and on, and there is still so many things that have to get done! I'm trying not to be all pessimistic but I reached the point of a project where you just want to see it done already. The reality is that I have over the half of the bathroom done, which is great but I feel overwhelmed by all of the little things left to do. It READ MORE

Basement Bathroom : Week 5

Although I am right on schedule with this project, it feels like its taking forever! It's a semi-enjoyable, semi painful kind-of-forever, and I'm glad the payoffs make it seem worth it thus far. Let me get you guys up to speed. Since last week I tiled one side of the shower stall. It's not just one side though, it's one side with a soap niche. Who would have ever thought that one niche would take so much planning, but it did. After staring at hundreds of images on pinterest and considering READ MORE
