Renovation Update: Week 9

We're in the home stretch!  Week 9 of construction is underway.  The bathroom tile has been floated, set, grouted and sealed and looks fantastic - I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

I went with a bright white grout on the shower walls.  It looks so crisp and clean.

I originally saw this flooring in my friend Heather's master bathroom.  It looks like little polka-dots - so cute.  And since it's a traditional hexagon and dot tile the style fits with the period of the house.  The floor tile is carried through into the shower as well and helps give a small bathroom a more spacious feel.

We used a platinum color grout on the floor.  It's super light gray but dark enough to hide dirt.  Plus, it makes the little dots POP!  The previous owners of this house used white grout for the kitchen and downstairs bathroom floor tile.  Over time it gets so grimy and dirty - I mean it IS a floor.  Never the less, I will never use white grout on any floor.

We also met with the cabinet maker last week.  He's currently working on the closet cabinets, bathroom vanity, hamper unit and linen closet shelving.  Can't wait to see how those turn out!

On tap this week, the hardwood floor gets sanded, stained and finished!  And, most importantly, looking forward to a fun week filled with Halloween activities, costumes and CANDY!


  1. Looking good, lady! LOVE the tile selections. So calming. And the skylights were a fantastic addition!

  2. Lo, I just came for a quick visit and to thank you for pinning my simple siver gift (and I love your gift wrap board). But seeing your work in progress, I am in love. And your newest follower :) Keep up the good work!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to read a Lo and Behold Life and leaving me a comment!
