Bathroom: Almost Done

It’s time for a bathroom update. Unfortunately, not QUITE yet one in which we declare it “done.” But an update, nonetheless.

(doesn’t that sound so nice and calm? that’s vacation, doing it’s job…)

I’ve at least stopped panicking about our defective/mis-mixed grout fiasco. After several awkward conversations with our contractors, the tile store representative who sold us the grout, and the grout’s regional distributor (yes! I went that deep!), all standing around in our 100-square-foot bathroom and refusing to look each other in the eye (seriously; six people in a tiny bathroom with their faces glued to the floor is hella awkward)…

It appears we have a fix:

We're re-staining the grout in place, using what so far seems to be a pretty great product called Aquamix.

…and I’m pretty darn happy with the results thus far. Go figure!

And, we’ve made good on our declaration not to spend a dime on anything.

(I have to say, our contractor has jumped every time we’ve said “jump!”)

So help me god, there’s gonna be a “DONE” post soon…

Is anything ever done? Looking forward to the result and chuckling about the three guys all standing around in your bathroom pondering the grout…………
