Still Tiling...

We are still working on the floor in the small bathroom. We took out the vanity and decided to replace it. We did not realize these things are so expensive but once we started looking we were committed. We found a nice one with five drawers and a china top and basin for $700 that we bought. It is black enameled birch with a matching mirror. We also bought a new toilet. so it will be a $1000 project when it is all added up. It will make it look like the Queen's bathroom!

We put the old vanity down at the end of the driveway with a "Free" sign on it and this morning a pickup stopped and a man and woman loaded it up. Beats hauling it to the dump.

Yesterday we cut and dry laid all the tiles. Tomorrow we will cement them down. The walls and ceiling have to be painted before the new vanity comes in as well as a new drain installed so it will be a couple more days. As usual, it turned into a much larger project than we planned.

We took today off to explore the new WalMart that opened this week. It is a "Super Center" with a grocery department but unfortunately, no auto center. It does not have a very large parking lot so I will be curious to see if they allow overnight RV parking. I hope they do.


  1. Are we going to see the finished project? I have been toying with the idea of doing the same thing along with a bedroom remodel.

  2. I will try to post some photos Chris. It is very easy to do and the incredible variety of tiles you have available would make it even better!
