Tiling the Master Bath Floor

Hi all today I am back with part two of our master bathroom renovation. In a previos post you saw the ugly side of reno, but this weeks post will be a little easier on the eyes, if you know what I mean. We chose 12x12 Calcutta white tiles for the bathroom floor, and since Hubby and I both loved it, it was a no brainer!
Once the tile selection was agreed upon the next step was to decide how we wanted to lay the tile. I was fine with laying the tile down in the traditional pattern, but Hubby had something else in mind. So he sourced the internet until he came up with a pattern that he really liked. He decided to lay the tile in a cobblestone pattern and I gave his decision a thumbs up. So the next step was to do a dry run. Hubby placed each tile down in the pattern of choice. This gave him a general idea as to how the finished product would look, as well as how many cuts he would need to make. But more importantly he would know whether or not he really liked the cobblestone pattern in our space. 
The decision was unanimous! We not only liked the cobblestone pattern but we also liked how the
pattern added interest to our Tom Thumb sized space. After the dry run and before the tiles were permanently laid, the walls received a fresh coat of light gray paint. It took several days for Hubby to install the flooring, but that was okay since he wanted to take some extra time to do it right.

A close-up of the tile work. Hubby did an excellent job tiling. Can you believe this is his first tiling project ever?
I will share the dresser/vanity makeover in a later post.
We had been waiting seemingly forever to reno our master bath and create a space we both could enjoy and be proud of, now it was becoming a reality right before our eyes. By now, we were getting excited because in a few weeks we wouldn't have to go upstairs to use the bathroom. Did I mention how excited we were? There are several things left on the to do list before this Reno is finished, and I can't wait to share the reveal with you! How about them floors!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
