completed bathroom

We finally finished the boys' bathroom. I love how it turned out. 


Here's what we did:

Light fixture from Amazon.
 New Kohler tub from Home Depot.
Gray porcelain tile and dark gray mosaic quartzite from Arizona Tile. I wanted to rip the tiles down several times because I couldn't get them just right. I cried and screamed and threw little girly fits over it. I remained quite calm through the whole process. Just ask J.
 Kohler one piece toilet from Home Depot. Toilet paper holder and other fixtures from Macy's. A one piece potty doesn't have a slot under the tank in which to harbor little boys' distractions. If you have boys you know what I'm saying. This one will get a little less grodey. It's the little things in life...
 I pushed for a herringbone pattern in the bathroom since J said he wouldn't do it with the hardwood floors in the rest of the house. I wanted to shoot myself for this decision at least twice and J at least three times. Again, super calm, zen-like attitude.
 Hand built niche. Trinkets from Anthro.
 Kohler pedestal sink from homedepot.com. Mirror from Target.
 Price Pfister faucet from Amazon. Only because the widespread faucet I bought originally didn't fit on the centerset sink holes. Sometimes my brain hurts and I don't think very well.
It's pretty awesome. It {only} took 4 months to finish. Now we are moving on to the flooring for the main house. We just got a truckload of bamboo but I have to finish painting the living room and the kitchen cabinets and remove all the baseboards. Can't wait to have proper floors again!

  1. This looks awesome! I love everything in it. And I totally know about the toilet thing - I have refused to clean the toilet for the last 2 years - Joe does it and now Jase is working on doing it as part of his chores (and hopefully cleaning a nasty toilet will help him make less mess...
