Down the hall, First door on the left

Saturday, November 24, 2007

At least, those are the directions I would give you, if it had a door!

However, if privacy isn't a concern of yours, our main bathroom is finally open for business! (In other words, to anyone four and under. Or if all you need to do is wash your hands.)

The floor fish at the entrance. It's so pretty, and because it is different than the rest of the floor, I catch myself subconsciously stepping over it instead of onto it. Kind of like when I was a kid and would purposely avoid stepping on sidewalk cracks, not because I am superstitious, but because it became a popular game while I was in elementary school (accompanied by the sing-song "Can't step on a crack or you'll break your mother's back.) It became habit. To this day, if I am walking down a cast cement sidewalk, I avoid the cracks, if possible. This fish has too many cracks. I have to step over onto a safe 13"x13" tile, where there is plenty of room for my foot.

See the blue "dot" tiles? I actually wanted to do a whole row of a contrasting colour like this, but guess what? This was the only box the flooring store had. And they'd been discontinued. I couldn't even order more of a different colour--I can't remember why. The whole product had been discontinued. So I took their one box at a discounted price, remembering that the free tile stash we used on the rest of the walls included little 2"x2" tiles of a non-contrasting colour, and decided to make it work. And voilĂ , you see the little repeated pattern in the photograph. I even had 3 blue tiles left over. Another creative solution to an otherwise perplexing problem.

The paint on the door is drying--hopefully, we will be hanging it by the end of the weekend. Yippee!

Hope your Saturday was happy, friends!
