home progress: bathroom update

bathroom renovation // vintage credenza vanity, round mirror // smitten studioHey guys our bathroom is finished! I still have to add in the final accessories (towel hooks, toilet paper holder, soap dispensers, rug, etc. etc) but at least we have a brand spanking new and usable bathroom. We also just passed our final inspection and everything got approved by the city, so our 2 bed/1bath just officially went to a 2 bed/2 bath (with a new laundry room). Yay!

The reason for the HUGE delay in posting was because we also ran into a big problem with the tile job. After the grout went in, the color was blotchy and that was only emphasized by the fact that all the lines were uneven thicknesses. The guy assured us that it just had to finished drying and it would be uniform.

Well, we waited and waited and the blotchiness never went away (you can kind of see it here). We tried to get the guy back, but never could track him down. Finally, just when I was about to give up and have our brand new tiled shower and floors just look like dirty old ones, a guy on the crew that had been working on the rest of the renovation came in, scraped out all of the grout, and re-did the entire space (and the angels sang, taa daaaaaa).
