The Bath - Tile

Okay...sorry it has been so long. Blah blah work, blah blah unhappy with work, blah blah paycheck in a bad economy.  Ugh.  I hate being a grown-up sometimes.

But then, I'm sitting in my own house, drinking a glass of wine at 4:42 on a Monday.  It isn't all bad, I suppose. 

So the bathroom.  Once we ripped out the old manky blue tile-from-hell, we decided to go with clean, white 4x4s and some travertine accents.  We were initially going to go with travertine for the floor, but all the floor tiles were filled, and i hate the look of filled travertine.  Anyone feeling me on this? I also hate the bubbly, crumbly look of some natural travertine, so it was quite funny, me in ye olde HD aisle with all the tile out on the floor in front of me, picking out the most non-porous/non-filled bits for our bathroom.

We decided on limestone subway tile for the floor, and I installed it in a brick pattern.  I love the look of it, but wish I had been brave enough to do a herringbone.  Next time...

 We thought we would make a little cubby for shampoos and such in the shower wall.  Cute, right?  Yeah...seconds after my husband cut into the sheetrock, I heard a stream of profanity from the bathroom. Fully expecting to see a bloody mess, or possibly his arm off, I ran down the hall, only to see him (non-bloody) staring at the open wall. It went something like this:

Ummmm...honey?  I thought your arm was off.  WTF.

Look at this fucking shit.  I mean, just look at it.

Uh...yeah.  I see a 2x4 and some sheetrock.  So, you're going to make my cubby?

The 2x4 is installed on its side.


These fucking people built a whole wall with the 2x4s facing the wrong direction.  You can't have your cubby.  It's probably not even structurally sound.


GAAAAAAHHHHHHHFUCKINGGGGGGIDIOTS!! cubby.  no arm off.  I'm, um, just going to go now. 

 Later, I tried to put some shampoo in, just to see if it could possibly, in any way work.  That shit is just a toe smasher waiting to happen.

 We moved on to the fun the accent stripe.

Kind of cute, huh?  In a cubby-less sort of way.
