From Worn Out to WOW!...Tiling the Master Bath Shower.

Where did the time go? It's been three months since my last post. But what can I say? Life happens! Any who the past three months have been a blur, but now I am ready to get back into the blogging groove. The last time I popped in we had demoed the master bath, painted the walls, and tiled the floors. So today's post is all about the shower. Are you ready for this? DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!

 Behold the finished shower!!!
But before I go any further I would like for you to take a trip with me down memory lane. Whose with me?
 This is how the shower looked before Hubby rolled up his sleeves and went to work. Yikes! The old shower surround had to be cut into pieces in order to get it out of the bathroom. Major headache! Even though this remodel was long overdue at this point in the Reno, I became a tad bit nervous.

Once the shower surround had been removed the old insulation was replaced and the shower floor was prepped. Now I could  breathe a sigh of relief since the surround was out. 

The cement board was installed and concrete was poured on the shower floor. (sorry no pic of the cement being poured )  Once the concrete dried it was time to start laying the tile. Hip hip hooray!!!!

The floor tiles had a mesh backing and to our surprise the installation was a little tricky. Since we are newbies to tiling it took a lot longer than expected, but Hubby powered through it with minimal mistakes.

After the floor was installed Hubby tackled the shower walls. I forgot to take pics of the wall when Hubby first started tiling. Oops!!! Alexander Pope said it best, "To err is human." tahehehe!

Now that the shower was completely tiled, the only thing left to do was the grout. The next day the grout was applied. And at this point we were so excited because our master bath was finally taking shape. Did I mention we were two Happy Campers?

Once the grout was completely dry Hubby thoroughly cleaned and sealed the tiles. Lastly he added the shower accessories and that completed this project. Nice!!!! I took this pic so you could get a close-up of all the details in the tile. Plus I wanted you to see how absolutely gorgeous it is. You like?
One last thing, is the accent tile beautiful or what? Love it!!!
So what do you think? I think it turned out amazingly awesome. Hats off to Hubby and a great big thank you for all of your hard work. Did I mention that our Master bath was his first time tiling ever? Okay READERS/VISITORS please help me spread the love and give my Hubby a shot out for a job well done! Have you under gone any bathroom renovation lately, if so I would love to hear about it!

Go out and make today count!

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…
