more bathroom

well, some good news! chad talked to the tile place and we are supposed to have our color match sample by tomorrow. and he said that once we place an order it should only take about three weeks to have the tile made. for me, this is a huge relief. i had a hormonal pregnancy moment last week and i was like: you tell him we are on a DEADLINE. baby irvington bungalow can't be in a bathroom with lead paint chips floating in his/her first bath. i think that is illegal or something. :) i make fun here but seriously. this is no laughing matter!

we are ordering our wall and floor tile from American Restoration Tile. the floor tile isn't the issue, it has been the color match for the subway tiles for the walls. anyways, this is the floor tile we are going to order. the style is a replica of what we have now but the colors are different. this is just a pic from their site and are not the colors we'll be ordering. we're not having the border that is in the pic. we haven't decided on the color placement of the tile but it will have white, a gray/green/blue color and a black. very similar to what is below.

other than the tile and the plumbing supplies we have everything else already. we need to strip all the woodwork and repaint, including our built-in cabinet and a medicine cabinet we bought off of craig's list. the only other major outstanding item is the bathtub. we have a fabulous pedestal tub we also got from craig's list but it needs to be refinished. so. not sure what will happen there. probably not in time for baby but i think that will be okay.

cross your fingers we actually receive the tile tomorrow. otherwise it might be back to square one.
