** GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED **
So, are you ready for the final chapter in the degrossification of my master bath? To get you up to speed, The Home Depot offered me a chance to try out their Atmospheres Collection line of Daltile tile. excitedface! I had an in-store visit with our personal flooring expert Ron, and loaded up with everything I needed to decarpet our bathroom.
Matt got busy right away tearing it out, and surprisingly, it was not that bad under there. Just kidding, it was super gross. I was literally skipping around the house just to have it gone.
The tiling process was actually pretty easy; we only hit a few minor snafus along the way. (Hint: don’t bother with unsanded grout. We should have listened to Ron and his eyebrow of dubiousness when we put it in our cart).
So, after nearly four years of living with it like this, and only a few evenings of work, we’ve finally got a bathroom floor that doesn’t give your stomach the herky-jerkys. Want to see?
So. Much. Brown. And that light fixture! And I promise I don’t usually have a blanket tacked up over the bedroom window. Super classy. But now …
Do you like it? I love it. I’m so happy with the results. It’s so much brighter in there, it feels twice as big!
If you remember, I had originally wanted a rectangle tile, but the one I chose was actually wall tile, so no bueno. We achieved a similar look by simply staggering the 12×12 tiles. (Briton Bone, see it HERE).
You may notice the “shoe” trim around the edges. This is what happens when you are unaware that your husband’s tiling experience only equals “I helped a guy tile once back in high school.” So we had some rough edges that could have been unnoticeable had we just cut them a bit more exact. (Grout can only do so much). I’ll probably paint or stain them in the future to blend in a bit better with the cabinetry, but I’m not complaining. Because let’s take one more look at the tragic before:
The new light fixtures are from The Home Depot and the mirror frame is from Mirror Mate. (Stay tuned for more info on that). Someday I’d like to frame the other mirror too, but it has an obnoxiously placed outlet cut right into the edge of the glass.
And now, just for reading the scintillating saga of my bathroom floor, you have a chance to win a $100 gift card to The Home Depot!
