I've been wanting to revamp our guest bath for awhile now, but with a busy summer I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Yesterday, it was really bothering me so I mentioned to my husband that I wanted to put in a new tile floor - namely, a new Carrara marble tile floor.
He said "okay".
I said "today".
He came back with a sledgehammer and chisel and I said "yay"! I tend to get like this. I'll mull over something for ages and when I finally decide what to do/that I want to do it...I want it done, like, 15 minutes ago. So, thank you to my most agreeable husband.
The old floors were a faux-marble-esque ceramic tile with gray and pink "veining".
That grout! Ugh. Why didn't I do this years ago?
So, we got down to business. He starting hammering away while I was in charge of clean up as we went along.
Derby was a huge help :)
We went down to the concrete subfloor. I filled in some of the larger holes with a thin-set mortar that we had on hand.
We then sealed it with a self-leveling concrete primer & will self-level it tonight. Little surprises always pop-up when doing home renovations, but I still groaned when the sink starting to leak. I want this project done by the end of the week, so wish us luck!!
I redid this bathroom 4 or 5 years ago when I was loving chocolate brown/light blue/ivory color combination (which I still love, by the way), so I am ready for something new. Most of the walls in our house are some shade of gray and while I kind of wish I could commit to doing something completely different in here, I am pretty sure we're going to go gray in here as well. BUT! It will be in a fun, new way (stripes, anyone?).
