This Week in Photos

Here we go, action on a couple of fronts this week.

The master bath started getting it's shiny white tile...

Laying horizontally in the shower

One edges out to line up with the top of the tub – this will continue to be the backsplash

Mike super-happy on his visit after work...

...the river rock was his pick :)

The tile floor goes in this week, as does the vanity.

In news from the den, the wood trim fixes were completed and it started to finally look "real" when the primer went on.

In a super-quick decision, we decided to go platinum on the walls (Benjamin Moore's Affinity, "Eternity")

I can't tell if the decisions actually get easier as it goes on, or if we're just worn down. I think it's the latter!

Last week we picked out our slab of Statuary marble. We went with Statuary b/c we think it's closest in veining to the Arrebescata Saarinen table we own, going in the same room, and currently in storage so no one really knows. Let's keep our fingers crossed we don't have to ebay the tabletop.

Our slab — this is going on our kitchen island (as well as on our master bath vanity)
A simulation of the shape of our island, and how we'd cut it out of the slab
And this week we finalized our dark gray quartz countertops
that will go in the perimeter of the kitchen, and the bar

And back to bulbing it was today... the only good news (besides it being DONE) is that we had figured out the system this time.
The auger drilled the holes

Mike bulbed like a million sections of mondo and kept bringing
them down in a bucket where one of us would plant them
The last 2...

The right bank, done

And both sides. This was immediately followed by showers and cocktails!
