Master Bathroom Color Palette

One of our commenters was interested in the colors used in our bathroom, so I thought I’d share the detailed info on our paint choices. I’m terribly in love with the way they came together. We started the process by choosing a shower curtain – because as you’ll quickly learn, it’s infinitely easier to find […]

Organizing our bathroom goods

As you’ve no doubt noticed, I am a huge fan of organizing things; clutter and chaos makes me itchy. I don’t know when the compulsion to organize began, because my mother can tell you stories about my years of teenage-bedroom-slobbery. I distinctly remember finding a glass of fungus on my bedside table during one of […]

Master bathroom: the “after” photos

After nearly three months of work (that’s 12 fun-filled weekends, plus the work we squeezed in on weekdays), the master bathroom remodel is officially done. We put the finishing touches on it this past weekend. And now, every time I walk in there, I marvel at the beauty and order we created out of total […]

Installing a clawfoot tub shower

Note: This is Teague’s second post in 2.5 years! Let’s all make him feel welcome, and maybe he’ll come share his how-to’s (which are much more thorough than mine, since he tends to lead the process while I follow along) more often! – Mindy STEP ONE: The first step to installing our free-standing chrome fixture […]

Shower Photos (For John!)

After all the complaining I’ve made you listen to, I figure you guys have earned a look at the glorious freestanding chrome shower, faucet and drain we FINALLY have installed and working properly. It’s a beauty….you know how a piece of real silverware feels decadent and fancy compared to a plain old cheapo fork? That’s […]

How to: Shortening a chrome shower riser

When our Sunrise Speciality shower enclosure came in the mail a few weeks ago, it felt like Christmas. It was a welcome sight, those boxes filled with shiny chrome goodness piled high on our porch. We ripped into them like maniacs, taking each piece out to examine and admire the fixtures inside. But of course, […]

Building trimwork and molding

Adding trimwork and molding is one of the best ways to add elegance to a plain room; I can’t tell you what a difference it makes. It’s one of the main reasons historic houses have so much charm… they have layer upon layer of built-up trim throughout the house accenting the windows, doors, and walls […]

Making the clawfoot functional – where to hide the soap?

There’s one major “flaw”, if you will, in the design of clawfoot tubs. There is absolutely no good place for my aresenal of shampoos, conditioners, soaps, sponges, loofahs, and body washes. I swear, I’m really not high maintenance… but if you looked at my bathroom full o’ supplies, you’d think I spent 2 hours every […]

Installing A Hex Tile Floor: Part 2

Haven’t read part one, which covers cement backer board, tile layout and mortar? It’s right here. Once the mortar is fully set, you can move on to grouting. We chose charcoal gray grout to hide our dirt and grit; white grout would look pretty for a week or two, but I know after that I’d […]

Installing A Hex Tile Floor: Part 1

Yes…….. happy days are upon us, because we’re finally getting to the really fun part of the bathroom remodel. Beadboard went up last weekend, and this weekend was tile-o-rama! We chose white hex tiles from Home Depot, and mixed a few black accent pieces in to make it interesting. The tiles have a very historic […]
