Another Bathroom Upgrade & Giveaway Winner!!


Happy Friday everyone! First, I want to thank everyone who entered my Simpson Strong-Tie Workbench or Shelving Kit giveaway, and second, I have a winner.



Congratulations Angie K! 

Angie blogs at Postcards From the Ridge. She is a very handy lady, so I'm excited to see what she does with her kit.

If you were very observant in Wednesday's post about my make-up storage, then you may have noticed a little something new. Another step in the world's longest bathroom upgrade.



A new title backsplash! 



I thought about writing a tutorial for this,but there are enough tile back splash tutorials out there in the world, and honestly, its not that hard. 

I found my tile at Lowe's for around $11 a sheet. Since I cut the sheets into strips, I only ended up using 2. 


Okay, yes. I still have never painted my mirror trim. Its still just primed. I promise I'll get to that soon!
This tile is a lesson in compromise. I went to the store with my husband and he was the one to suggest this particular pattern. I was voting for classic, white penny tile, but that was instantly vetoed. He loved the geometric shapes and we both fell for the stainless steel and Carrara marble tiles. Although it wasn't my first pick, I decided to compromise and we went home with the husband's choice. 

When we got home, I realized this was the absolute easiest tile I could have installed. I could cut the mat with scissors (no tile saw required) into strips and it fit perfectly above the counter. I did have to trim about an inch off of one strip, but thankfully due to the pattern of the design, I could easily do that. 



Not only did it fit the space perfectly, the colors could not be more perfect. The warm gray matches the concrete counters. The white ties in with the sinks. And the stainless steel adds shine, just like the chrome hardware. Good job honey! I guess I should listen to you more often. Compromise isn't always a bad thing. 




Let's be friends! Follow along, so you never miss a post
