#ugliestbathroomreno Update #2.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! It went by so quickly, as it always does. It was a great time with family and friends. We indulged too much, did a lot of relaxing and loved every minute of it. My sister flew back to Ontario last night and Stephane started back at work today so it now seems like it's time to get back to normal routine.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that two very exciting things happened just before Christmas. First of all, our floor tile was laid and grouted. It was done over the process of a few days by our awesome tiler and I'm pretty much in love with the result. Especially since within 24 hours we had it covered with cardboard to protect it from the rest of the work going on around it. I almost forget what it looks like!


Having the tile installed also meant that the toilet could go in. A hallelujah moment considering we only have one bathroom. It was official installed and ready for its first flush the day before Christmas. We were feeling pretty elated.


The shower system goes in next and that last piece of gyprock. Then, the tiler can come back and do the walls of the shower. It's finally coming together. It really does take twice as long as you anticipate!

Floor tiles: Novecento White Hexagon, Home Depot

  11. Is it weird that I'm gushing over the shape of that toilet? With a husband and three kids, the fact that it's pretty much flat on the edges, opposed to the typical weird ledges all the way around that collect way too many gross things, is almost as exciting as the floors.
