The Master Bath and Great Room Fireplace

One step at a time. That is how this tiling is going. The travertine tile has been set on the fireplace in the great room, but it has not been grouted. The mantel and corbels will be created by Mr. Comforts of Home once the tile is grouted. The 2x4's are there to hold up the tile as the adhesive sets.

The master bath tile is almost complete. All of the subway wall tiles and the shower floor are now installed. The shampoo nook still needs to be tiled then it all will be grouted.

This afternoon I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and bought a comforter and some shams. The Pottery Barn bed skirt I ordered arrived today.

Tomorrow (Friday) I am painting the walls of the master bathroom. I am using Dover White from Sherwin Williams.

So as soon as the master bath tiling is done, we will move out of the guest room we are currently in and into the bedroom. Hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday. We will have a toilet to use then ( a very important feature) on the first floor.

It is a little bit like camping right now :-)
Welcome Home,

You are so funny. We were just discussing at work today how spoiled we are by modern features - like our toilets. Wink!

Penny, I know you must be so anxious. I know I am.

Hi Penny, your bathroom is looking fabulous. It will be wonderful to be able to use it again. I think I mentioned that when we had our bathroom makeover in our last home, the toilet was next to my bed for weeks. Not at all attractive.

I love coming over to see your progress. The fire place is lovely with that tile.

Hugs, Jeanne

I'm loving the progress, Penny! I think I mentioned before how much I love the bathroom tile! Great choices!

Jennifer Froh said...

It's coming along beautifully!

I'll have to post pictures of my shower remodel (when it's done!)... we had to do an emergency tear down :( What stinks is I didn't get much time to plan for it :(

Pondside said...

This is so much fun! You do the work and we get to enjoy the progress each day!
I love the shampoo nook - what about a book nook by the tub?

Adrienne said...

Your fireplace is going to be wonderful and the master bath is gorgeous! I love the subway tiles but that window 'takes the cake'!! Can't wait to see it all finished and the bedroom, too. You must be tired but so happy to be making progress. Things will all fall into place and one day you'll wonder what's left to do. Thanks for sharing every step of the way with us - it's almost as good as being there!
