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 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. It looks great!!

  2. 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...
