Not too specific, right? Well, I didn't find the one floating around in my mind's eye but I found a simple and pretty tile at Home Depot. It brought the shower area and the vanity area together.
It was a quick albeit messy install. (I hate dealing with grout!!!)I cut the glass tiles to the height I needed and simply spread an adhesive and grout mix on the back. I loved working with glass tile. The pieces are small and cutting the mesh was easier than using that huge wet saw.
I had to cut a few of the tiles with my tile snip.
The glass tiles were hard to cut. It took a few tries to get ones that didn't break but I only needed two cut tiles.
This whole backsplash was less than $30.00. Each 12X12 section of was $7.00. I think it provides some added drama for not a lot of money.
I love it.
It matches the paint in the potty/shower room perfectly. It brings the geometric motif from the floor into the vanity area.
The neighbor across the street from us when we were growing up had a pink and black scheme in her entryway. It was a big pink cabbage roses on a black ground. I had to be really young but I just loved her walls. I don't know if I was just a weird little kid or if it is a testament to how much I have always loved design. I like that this bathroom has that same vintage vibe.
We always keep a lamp on in here.
The counter was $25.00. We used pine.The wood came from Home Depot.
The sink was $60.00. It is the Cadet by American Standard.
The faucet was $99.00 (You could find one cheaper for sure.) Bill wanted a Delta faucet. We went with chrome instead of brushed nickel for a vintage look. The sink and faucet came from Lowes.
The tile was $30.00. I found it at Home Depot.
The black and white checked floor is about 10 years old. Home Depot had something similar in a hex tile.
I'm looking around trying to decide if it would work in the kitchen or the master bath. We'll see.
