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 READ MORE

Basement Bathroom : Week 10

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 READ MORE
