Anyway, now there are walls in our once unfinished basement. Walls! Like I uttered yesterday: "We got walls and sh*t!" (FC fact #12: Sometimes, I have a potty mouth.)
Moving on. I *think* we've chosen our shower tiles. You might recall that the original plan was to install grey-blue glass tiles. Easier said than done; we had a difficult time agreeing on anything we saw. We came to the reluctant conclusion that the glass tiles we envisioned might overwhlem our small, windowless basement bathroom (we're aiming for light & airy).
I was hoping to avoid big box stores when it came to tiles--just wanted something "unique", you know? Well wouldn't you know it, on one serendipitous day at Home Depot there was a display of honed carrara marble subway tiles with an inset of mosaic glass tiles in cool grey-blue tones. Here they are laid out on our kitchen table:
My pride's a bit wounded, as I had no part in dreaming up this combo since HD did all the creative work. Light & airy? Check. Classic (cararra marble)? Check. A touch of retro-modern (glass tiles)? Check. The FCs all love it? Sweet nectar of life, we've finally agreed on something.
