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!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
