Hi! Welcome back to the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home! A bananas awesome event where you makeover a space in 6 weeks.
To make this utterly difficult for myself, I chose to remodel my master bath in 6 weeks. Fortunately, it’s small and we are not changing the footprint.
So what to show you this week?
Well, a fair amount of the shower tile was laid.
Penny tile. Such a simple tile yet so difficult to lay properly. If you don’t lay it properly, you will see gaps and the individual sheets. See in the shower pan?
There are a couple tricks to combat this. 1. You have to remove alternating tiles on adjacent sheets so they “lock” together. 2. You have to use dark grout.
The gaps are too easy to see when you use a light grout.
See the images below? First is from the Hotel St. Cecilia; Second is from Domino Magazine.
Needless to say, I’m using dark grout.
The tub has arrived and it’s awesome.
Now, I need some serious help with the Chandy over the tub.
Which would you pick? Is bubbles over the tub too literal?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Hoping we get the floors right and the scones arrive sometime soon.
