Once the mirror went up it became obvious we need to tile around the window - finish that entire wall in tile. sigh.
I love the floor tile, even though the black grout is super dirty and turning white. I need to get a scrub brush since the grout is sunk into the floor, not level with the tile, and debris gets trapped.
The tub is the bomb. It is six feet long with drain and filler in the middle, allowing a child to sit at each side. The hand held shower should come in handy for washing the kids.
The cubbies make me happy! The shelf is a beautiful solid piece of wood. The sconces are vintage from etsy.
I want to love this room, but, in equal parts I like the wall tiles and want to rip them out. I guess it's not the tiles, it's the thickness of the grout. The grout is too chunky and way more graphic than I had intended (or maybe I was just wrong). I guess that's something I can and will get used to. The real 'problem' is that the black grout emphasizes the chipped edge of every single cut tile - every tile that is not whole is chipped/frayed at the edge. I don't know what they can do about it. We will wait until September and see. I can probably get used to this too. Is it normal?
ps. The sink is on back order.
pps. Likely using this light
