One of my favorite ways to relax is reading a book in the tub. When we built this house I begged, pleaded and offered to sell my left kidney politely requested one thing, a big ole pedestal soaking tub. But eek! there is definitely a price hike involved. So in the spirit of compromise, I gave up having a tiled shower (we went with a fiberglass one) and we laid all the tile in the bathroom ourselves. We crunched the numbers and fit the tub in the budget (YAY)!
Isn’t she a beaut? So worth every minute tiling this floor while 5 months pregnant!
Speaking of which, this hex tile is so fun and relatively easy to lay, it comes in big square sheets. Grouting all those little lines is the only thing that is a pain.
The blah shower I covered up with a pretty Pottery Barn shower curtain.And oops if you look close, you can see the huge hole in the wall that I was trying to hide with my towels. Let’s just say my shelves are now hung with sinkers and I have recovered from the middle of the night heart attack I suffered when these suckers fell down!
Speaking of counter tops, remember how I wanted marble in the kitchen? (check out our kitchen here)
The hallway leading from the master to the bath.
Now if I could just have a few minutes to soak in peace without my little muchkins banging on the door begging to “go swimming in the pool” too :)
Hope you have a relaxing place in your house to recharge!
