Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 3, The Reveal

How to prep and tile your bathroom floors using either small scale mosaic sheets or large scale 12x24 tiles!

Time for the fun part…the afters! It feels weird to post these because I have been living with these floors for almost six months now, so it doesn’t really seem all that special to me anymore. But seeing the before photos really puts it into perspective, so let’s look at those again real quick. Let’s start with the master bathroom and closet befores: Whoa, those are the WAY befores of the closet, before I did […]

Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 2, The Install

How to prep and tile your bathroom floors using either small scale mosaic sheets or large scale 12x24 tiles!

Now that all the prep was out of the way, it was finally time to start laying down tile! As you’ve probably heard before if you’ve ever watched any HGTV or DIY Network, it’s important when tiling not to tile yourself in a corner, as you shouldn’t walk on your freshly laid tile for at least 24 hours. This would be easy in the two smaller bathrooms and laundry room, where I knew I could […]

Adventures in Floor Tiling: Part 1, The Prep

Finally, a post about how I tiled three bathrooms and the laundry room in our home! This took a long time, because I am a bit crazy…anxious technically…so every time I went to write the post I got overwhelmed and/or bored and just exited right on out. I’m convinced I would be a better blogger if I bought a laptop and could blog in bed while binge watching The Royals butttt…my husband is not so convinced. […]

DIY Tub Caddy

How to build your own DIY wooden bathtub caddy!

I’ve mentioned before that our master bathroom is pretty builder-basic. It’s got the standard tub and separate standing shower thing going on, and while I would LOVE to have an oversized, fully tiled walk-in shower, it’s just not in the budget now, nor is it something we plan to tackle in this house that we only plan to be in for a year or two more. What we have is new and clean and perfectly […]

Master Bath Makeover: Part 3, The Reveal

A quick master bathroom makeover with a moody blue paint color and shiplap water closet!

Alright, my quick little master bathroom makeover is done! BUT let me just be clear, this room is far from “finished”. I still have plans to replace the linoleum flooring that came with the house with a nice light and bright tile, hopefully sometime in the near future. I’ve kind of been stalling on that project because I’ve never done tile before and I’m nervous, but my plan is to get it knocked out before […]

Master Bath Makeover: Part 2, Shiplap Water Closet 

How to DIY shiplap walls in your bathroom!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to add a little something special to this little master bathroom water closet by mimicking the shiplap I added to my master bedroom. My first step was to remove my baseboards and then slap up a quick coat of white paint on all my walls, just in case you could see between any of the gaps between my shiplap boards. At this point it looked pretty […]
