bathroom update

We are so close!!! The tile is all in and grouted though it still needs inspection. The walls are painted but will need touching up. Friday the toilet went in but it turns out the plumber's helper that did the pipe work in the attic hooked the toilet up to the hot water. The mirrored cabinet went in to the tune of much cursing (removing parts of 2x4s involved). Wiring moved, hole repaired, and the bracket for the light fixture went up but it needs to be moved up another 1/2" yes, it makes a difference to me. Baseboards, chair rails, and door trim got worked on. Rocky worked Saturday and the door to the bathroom went in and the molding went up around it on both sides and around the door to the rest of the house from the hall.

tile grouted and papered over, walls and bead board painted; a little different angle than I've been showing:

finished floor (though I still need to cream etch the blue border tiles to give them a softer look), baseboards and chair rail getting cut:

chair rail and baseboards going in, door trim around the shower in, mirrored cabinet installed, toilet installed, light fixture bracket (which you can't see in this pic) in, floor is covered again to protect it:

the door and most the molding and chair rail is in:

Of course, finishing the bathroom isn't finished. 

The back wall of the closet/hall has to be rebuilt and the access to that part of the house through the garage (instead of through my room) closed off, insulated, sheet rocked, textured and painted, and baseboards. And then the punch list on bedroom and bath/hall/closet. House still needs to be painted but that can wait til fall.


  1. You have the coolest tiny bathroom in the universe. The entire universe.

  2. Mr. Moon is working on his bathroom as we speak. I am beginning to have many doubts that it will ever be finished.

  3. Looks great!! I love the colors and tile design <3

  4. Great progress being made! You will be so grateful when it's all done!

  5. This has been a long haul for you and I am glad to read that it is almost completed. I love the floor pattern.

  6. Neat, and clevely designed.

  7. The tile looks wonderful! And - it's your bathroom. You can insist on moving something a fraction of an inch if you want. What a masterpiece of tiny spaces this is!

  8. A hot-water toilet! I have never heard of such a thing! LOL

    The floor looks great, and I love the color scheme.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
