Master Bath Sneak Peek

I'm not going to tell you that our bathroom is almost done.  It's not, much to my dismay.  My husband is now sleeping in our bedroom on our mattress which feels like a cloud.  I'm sleeping in my daughter's room on a firm twin bed.   Why?  because her bathroom is across the hall and I need to get up at least 3 times in the middle of the night to use it.  Gotta love pregnancy!  Here's the latest in the ongoing master bathroom never ending project.

The tile guy is doing an amazing job, but I'm pretty sure I've seen snails move faster.  Seriously, we're going on two months of putting in tile.  This is a two week job max.  We're torn.  We want to tell him to hurry the hell up, but we don't want him to do a crappy job either.  Getting him to show up to actually work is another story.  Well, never again with this guy.  The tile does look amazing though.  

So what's left?

-Toilet- this is priority one 
-sconces-picked them out but haven't bought them yet
-faucets-already ordered
-shelves in the closet
-installation of shower fixtures and bathtub
-glass shower doors-that's gonna hurt my wallet
-misc things that my pregnant brain is forgetting at the moment
-oh yes, finish the f'ing tile already

So I don't know when all this will happen but as long as I get a toilet I'll be happy.

    your tile looks beautiful! hopefully your tile guys is not a blog reader but hey, maybe that's why he is late all the time !! :)

  2. The tile looks amazing, but i'm sure that's SO frustrating! It really shouldn't take that long.

  3. Ummm, it's already incredible. You, my friend, are going to have one sick house when it's all finished!

  4. I can't get over how lovely everything is looking. You must be dealing drugs out of your backyard to afford all this marble. It looks like its going to be fab when its done.
    Sucks that yet another contractor is being a jerk, but it will be worth it in the end?

  5. I can never figure out why they don't show up? It is looking good, and it looks like the hardest part is over. Love the tiles.

  6. A good tile guy is hard to find! At least he's does great work - your bathroom is looking fabulous!

  7. 2 motnhs on tile yikes - i would have lost it :) But the bathroom looks great so far. So when are you due? I have a little one 6 month old.

  8. And I thought my husband was slow...
    Seems your tile guy is a perfectionist, no? (at least when he shows up) It looks amazing so far. I love that you are using a mix of patterns on the wall.

  9. I am jealous of all that space!! I love the tile and yet after two months I would be feeling just as you do...I admire your restraint in not going postal in your pregnant state...give the lady a master bath people! LOL

  10. Oh my gosh that tile gorgeous. I just love your taste - every project you do is so pretty. I can't believe you've been waiting for this to be finished for soooo long - you must be going out of your mind! Hopefully it'll be done soon (and you'll have a toilet!)
