Vertical Tile in Guest Bath? Check!

Now it just needs grout!

PS. I had my countertops templated yesterday...the color will be BAMBOO! Thank you for your votes.

Tiling, Continued...

Behold! the Glory of the guest bathroom tile work. (It's not complete, but you'll get the idea from these progress shots...)

Close-up of the beer niche...I mean...shampoo niche.

Tile and Appliances

We tiled and installed appliances this weekend, and I don't really feel like writing, so here are photos!
This is the half bath on the first floor. Simple tile layout -- it only took us an hour.

This is the front entry. I felt this area needed something a bit more flashy, since it's the first thing one sees upon walking through my doors. Dig the 45 degree angle and the mosaics!!

This is the finish entry tile. We places slivers of the hardwood flooring around the edges to show what the wood floors will look like next to the tile. Nice, eh??

The appliance shots pretty much explain themselves, but I'm stoked nonetheless. I'm leaving the plastic on until I absolutely have to take it off.

Come Together, Right Now!

I took a few days off over the Holiday to do some work on the house...

Mike and I worked our asses off, and I have pictures to prove it.

Holy Kitchen! It's starting to look like a real house! (Now all I need is countertops and a sink and the kitchen will be done!)
Oh, and appliances, which are in the house, but not yet installed...
And the electrical work is finished! We just need to have the city inspect! Huzzah!
(The last item to go in...the chandelier!)
Tile starts this weekend, and once that is done, the plumber can come finish it all up for me! Yay!
