We have almost finished the upstairs bathroom remodel.  I can’t believe I was initially against remodeling it!  I didn’t want to put any more money into this house, but my husband made me see the light.  Sometimes he has a good idea or two.;)  Let’s start from the ground up, the floor.  I found this great deal on Craig’s List for honey onyx tile and that was the jumping off point.  But I didn’t want to do yellows and browns, I wanted to do yellow, gray and white.  No cream, no brown, white and grey thankyouverymuch.  Here is a shot of the honey onyx on the floor:

love this honey onyx!


The middle of the floor is thassos white marble also from Craig’s list;) and the glass mosaic border is from Home Depot here.  I really dig this company Mosaic Loft, they have gorgeous designs.  The glass mosaic tile threw my tile guy a bit because it has a sticky backing as apposed to a paper backing that comes off with water.

Here is a wider view of the tile:

slight error on the corner... you wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't pointed it out;)

Very happy with my tile!

Is that about enough of the closeups??? I don’t think so.;)  Here is a view under the vanity:

Love the way it looks under the sink vanity

OK, now I think we might be done with the closeups… here is a wider shot to see how it looks under the soaker tub:

tile under the stand alone tub

love this tub, it is pretty small for a stand alone which was just right for us!

Oh, I should have moved the bath matt so you could see how the tile border just dives into the tub there.  I was a wee bit worried about how the tile rug thing would look when it actually went under the toilet, sink and bathtub.  I don’t think you see that much, I’ve seen the border come in so that it isn’t hidden under the tub… I didn’t want to do that, I wanted the tile to frame the whole room.  More to come on the walls tomorrow, can you guess what that is above the carrera marble chair rail?

    I love honey onyx! This came out beautiful. Funny, usually the “husband” doesn’t want the remodel, and the “wife” does. Glad you are both happy.
