Bathroom Update

We're on the home stretch here with the massive bathroom renovation.  The guys are installing the sink, bathtub and toilet as we speak, which is very exciting after two weeks of having to piece together showers in other people's bathrooms.
The subway tile on the walls and hex tiles on the floor have been installed and grouted, and the room has been painted.  It's Sherwin Williams' Watery.
I hear that we're crazy for installing a claw foot tub (an acrylic one), but we don't care. We like the aesthetic.  We'll see how it holds up to the boys and if we tire of stepping in and out of it for showers.
We've run into some minor issues, including having the wrong sized faucet for the sink. Unfortunately I can't run out and get a replacement yet because our car won't start.  Like they saying goes, "when it rains, it pours."  The cat, the couch, the car all went kaput this week.  What's next, the computer?  Scratch that. I don't even want to put that thought out there.
We're really pleased with how things have turned out so far.  I'm eager to take my first shower over the weekend, hopefully.
I'm ready for the chaos to be over. It's been rough shuffling the kids around to accommodate naps and keep us from going nuts in the house.  Jude is especially cranky, being overtired and teething.  And I feel so grungy without a shower and with mortar and drywall dust all over the house.  I really don't know how some people can live in a house where a renovation lasts for a year or more.  That would be tough.

So we're hanging in there, optimistic for a mostly back-to-normal weekend, air conditioners blasting against the oppressive heat headed our way.

  2. Oh wow, it looks GORGEOUS! I think the blue color was a perfect pick; it makes everything look very calm and serene, especially with that white subway time.

    And of course the claw foot tub = LOVE!

  6. It's so YOU! I love the tub. Kinda reminds me of a much more spacious version of our bathroom in NY, gorgeous tile and all.
