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!

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
