Degrossifying my Bathroom: Part II
Jul 7, 2012
The saga continues ...
So, the degrossification of my master bathroom is still in progress. You may recall that The Home Depot offered me a chance to try out some of their Daltile tile, and I was all over that because my master bathroom is *brace yourself* carpeted. Ewness. I couldn't wait to get started, so off to The Home Depot we went.
Here's a handy tip for you tile-it-yourselfers: make an appointment with the flooring experts at The Home Depot. We got some invaluable advice from our personal tiling expert Ron, mainly, that the tile I had picked out online and already started loading in my cart, the lovely marble-lookalike rectangle tile that had starred in my dreams, was NOT the tile for the job. Ron helpfully pointed out that it was WALL tile. Like meant for the shower wall, and not to be, you know, stood on. Drats.
Here's another tip: don't bring your kids to The Home Depot. Or maybe your kids are fine. Don't bring MY kids to The Home Depot, because they will think they are at Disneyland. This is me, pretending to listen to Ron while mentally yelling at my kids as they scream gleefully in the background:
So, back to the story. After I scared Ron away by having a mini breakdown about the tile, I decided to go with my second choice, called Briton Bone. It's actually not THAT far off from the look I was going for and they had plenty in stock, so we loaded it up!
Nice, right? If only you too could feel the crispy way the carpet crunches underfoot when you step out of a warm bath. Stay tuned next week for the big reveal and a $100 giftcard giveaway to The Home Depot!
