New House Update: Master Bathroom + Fireplace

Monday, June 11, 2018



Happy Monday, friends! This weekend was a fun one! Chris and I got to attend an adult birthday party for one of our best friends on Saturday and then Sunday was spent running errands and going to the pool with friends!

Today, I want to give another house update! This blog is a journal that I love to look back on, so I want to make sure to remember this process.

This week's big hold up was our shower flooring in the master bathroom (pictured below). I don't know what we were thinking when we chose our shower floor. The only way I can describe it is if you were buying a Range Rover with cloth seats. LIKE WHO DOES THAT? No one, the answer is no one. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.



See? Terrible. The floors remind me of a locker room shower. Just terrible. In my head I thought the tiles would have the appearance of concrete, but I was, so, so wrong. The sample I chose from was also a 2x2 inch tile, so I blame that as well. Our builder told us to go buy what we want and be on standby for when the tile guy returns. I am SO EXCITED for what we chose. It will be so much better!





In the store I wasn't sure how the hexagons tiles would work alongside the bigger hexagons, but I think they compliment each other perfectly!

Updated: It looks SO MUCH BETTER!


Now onto the next mess up. Obviously the guys installing our shiplap don't know Joanna Gaines. I don't hate the vertical look, but I prefer the horizontal. I WILL be incorporating vertical shiplap in the house, but you'll have the wait and see where that will be!

I am also obsessed with the subway tile surround on the fireplace!! It looks amazing!




The house is supposed to be done in August, and we can't wait! We will be doing a bunch of renovations (some things the builder wouldn't do) and work on the backyard once we close, so I am eager to get moved in and start decorating!

Happy Monday!
