Bathroom update

We have slowly been working on the bathroom on weekends and days off. To say it's been a challenge is an understatement. Our house being almost 120 years old makes everything difficult. The floor is not level and we tried leveling it many times.We finally got it as close to level as we could and I finally tiled the floor.I wanted marble floor tiles but it wasn't in the budget. We found a porcelain tile that looked like honed marble and I fell in love with it.Hubby liked the look and the price too.So this week we layed down the tile.Hubby cut the tile and I laid it down.It was definitely not easy but we kept going and it was finally finished.The next day we decided to tile the shower.We originally bought a shower enclosure kit. I really didn't like the idea of the shower kit but now they sell one with glass doors and I finally gave in. The glass doors are really nice and look more expensive than we spent. My hubby talked to a contractor friend of ours and he told him we could use our glass door from the kit but add tile to the walls instead of using the plastic that it came with so that is what we did.We chose a classic white subway tile. The boys tiled about half of the shower Monday and Hubby and I finished the rest on Tuesday.Yesterday I grouted the floor and the niches in the shower.Today I'm going to grout the shower. Here are photos of the bathroom so far.

Hello Sara! I check into your blog now and then to see what your up to with your lovely house etc. I've been following your blog for years now. Love your style, and the closeness of your family. I only wish you posted as often as you used too, but I understand life gets busy. ;)

Your bathroom looks great! We are getting ready to redo our main bath upstairs. I've been looking for a claw foot tub, and I found an antique buffet to turn into a sink. Love that look! I'll be checking back to see the finished project. :D Thank you so much for sharing bits of your life over the years! You are truly inspiring and magical! :) Hugs, Katie
