Finishing Touches on the Guest Bathroom

  So David did a great job on the second coat of Farrow & Ball Hound Lemon in the guest bathroom upstairs! We found this super cute shower curtain and hand towel from Target to accompany the yellow:   I decided I wanted to pick up the green from those in something on the walls,...

Guest Bathroom Update

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!!!!!  I’m so excited to join your club soon.  🙂 Things have really been happening here in the past few days.  The faucet for the vessel sink finally arrived!  The sink is installed in the bathroom (along with the toilet), and we hung the mirror and installed...
Turning Antique Dry Sink Basin Into A Sink

Turning Antique Dry Sink Basin Into A Sink

A few weekends ago, David and I decided to take some time to peruse an antique shop while we were driving home from somewhere (I don’t exactly remember where we were to be honest).  We happened upon the most amazing find– an antique dry sink basin for only $80! We somehow got it home in...

White Hexagon Tile Floor

Hello!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts– David and I went to Argentina for a week to celebrate his 30th birthday (ahhh!!) and one last big trip before our baby comes!  Now we’re back, and lots has happened while we’ve been gone.   First of all, the floor has been installed in the...

Tub Backsplash Tile: Check.

    Here’s a recap of what’s been happening in the bathroom recently! Below you can see the walls are up and the tub is too–   Let the tiling commence!     After a few days, the contractor’s crew had the tiles all affixed to the wall with the little spacers. Looking good at...
Backsplash for Tub Area

Backsplash for Tub Area

I spent way too many hours over the past few weeks looking at Houzz, Pinterest, Google Images, and so on for ideas on how to design the tile surrounding the tub/ shower area.  I stopped at numerous home places in Charlottesville and most of the time was just shocked by the expense of the tiles...
Bathroom Tub

Bathroom Tub

I scoured the internet for a while before finding this tub from Lowe’s for less than $300– brand new, narrow (only 29″ wide as opposed to the usual 30″ or 32″), and a drain on the right hand side.  The drain could have just as easily been on the left but I wanted it on...

Bathroom Sinks

For this week’s inspiration post, I’m going to lift the hood and show you what I’ve been dreaming about for the bathroom we’re remodeling:   Is this not drool-worthy??  Houzz is the best resource for finding house inspiration.  I LOVE the yellow and green combo first of all.  But what really drew my eye to...

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here are some pics of our master bathroom as it’s being converted to a guest bathroom! Above is a pic of our contractor Lucio working to carefully remove the old drywall from the old beams supporting the old chimney.  This was actually pretty tricky demolition because of the age of the drywall/ chimney and a...
Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

The current layout upstairs has been the subject of much speculation since we moved in.  Long story short, the master bathroom was awkwardly designed and not the kind of bathroom I wanted for the rest of my life. Here are some pics of the master bathwhen we moved in: Once we started tearing things apart...
