Fun, right?

Well we decided to get a couple of bids for the plumbing work, because with our day jobs, the nursery, baby shower and of course the baby herself coming in less than 4 months, we decided it was just too much for the husband to tackle.

So while I wait for the plumbing to be done, I started looking at tile options.

Love the bathroom over at Life Begins at Thirty Right?

and these beauties found on Pinterest.

So I went ahead and ordered a sample of this gorgeous tile.

1×1 Polished Carrera Marble Hexagon mosaic.

Seriously loving this for the floor!

I wonder how marble will hold up on the floor though. I’ve been so afraid to ever use it in my house because it’s not as durable as porcelain or ceramic.

Do you have or know anyone with marble floors? How do they hold up?

Yay!!

We (meaning the husband) finally took a hammer and crowbar to the old bathroom!

I took some quick shots before he got started in case you forgot how horrible this bathroom looked.

While the husband got started, I documented.

Bye bye ugly ass toilet! Ewww I forgot about the old linoleum we used to have in there.

Both layers of linoleum came up fairly easy and surprisingly our sub floor was in pretty good condition.

Now for the fun part! Breaking tile! I so wish I could have been in on this.

And this is where we ended off, a pretty good start for our first day, which was actually just 2 hours.

The plan is to have it completely gutted by the end of this weekend.

Be My Guest

25 Jul

Hi All! It’s Monday, wow I wish it was Friday already. Hope you’re with me on that one.

I realized I forgot to share with you the little revamp I did on the guest bathroom.

I pulled this together the week before the Bridal Shower, because I knew I would be mortified if the guests used this bathroom in it’s existing condition.

Remember this…

Well after a couple of trips to the fabric store and Home Goods, I came up with a quick and easy solution to make this tiny bathroom have a little charm.

First thing I did was add this cute basket and displayed some lovely toilet paper. I know some people might not be into displaying their TP, but I think it works perfectly in such a small space with zero storage.

I was trying to think of ways to hide the ugly pipes under the sink and after a couple of hours of googling, I decided a sink skirt would work the best in such a short amount of time. Here is my take on it, not perfect but it did the trick!

Soooo… what do you think? Came out pretty cute huh? I really can’t wait to gut this bathroom and start fresh.

All it takes is one positive test for the husband to get busy on it…if you know what I mean.
