ORC: Tile It Up!
Things are moving right along on the One Room Challenge. As a refresher, here is the plan for the upper patio area…
Bench is built, all cushions are done, rug is ordered. We ended up changing directions on that beautiful umbrella in the plan because, frankly, the umbrella cost an arm and a leg. Even with husband approval, I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Which has made Graham oh so proud of my frugality. I found one off of Wayfair for less than a quarter of the price in a solid gray and it is…wait for it…backordered. Of course.
Next up on the list…this bar area is getting retiled…
with this tile…
The tilers have already begun and it’s looking so much better.
Of course when it comes to projects, things never go totally to plan. The plan was to have the tile stop on the front wall exactly where the red tile used to stop and have the white wall for most of the bar front facing wall. However, this tile is thicker then the old tile and so there would be this weird bump out from the tile to the wall and the only way to fix it is to float the wall which aint cheap.
Then I thought, well, why not tile the entire wall? Lightly suggested it to Graham and he was on board.
The beauty of the ORC is that there is absolutely no time to hem and haw over our decision. We both slept on it and the next morning I bought the extra tile. Now I’m hoping the extra tile will come on time and we will get everything finished in time. And, most importantly that it’ll look good and we’ll be happy with our decision.
The race is on. Go cheer on the contestants at Linda’s Calling It Home blog.
