After much struggle, the powder room sink is installed. All I have to do is glue the drain pieces together. If theres one thing I learned about pedestal sinks, its that I will never buy one again. Well, if I do, I’ll let a professional do it. It was quite a big pain in the ass. That being said, I’m glad its done, and I’m sure my Dad is too as we wasted way too much time messing with it. I guess all thats really left in there is to finish the last 2 pieces of baseboard and to paint the door. I am going to try and get a white framed mirror somewhere I guess and I have the toilet accessories already bought and in the house.
I would love nothing more then to show you finished pictures of the shower. However, per the usual course of things at the house, there were complications. I ran out of grout after having done 3/4 shower walls. This is likely because I made a bigger joint on the floor then the tile people thought I would. This does not however negate the fact that there is no way in hell I would have had enough grout to do the whirlpool tub walls even had I done a smaller joint on the floor. Regardless, the shower is not completely grouted yet. My Mom picked up 2 more things of grout from Mosaic today so that I can finish it up this weekend.
I also wish I had a better teaser photo of what is grouted… For whatever reason, probably due to my inexperience, there was a tremendous amount of haze and grout that was not visible when the walls were wet in the sponging stage. I want to push some of the blame away because I did not have this big of an issue with any of the floors I have done to date. Regardless, the picture I have is of me mid grout removal round 2. I am using some liquid grout haze remover and a piece of cheese cloth….
I’m not sure what that odd smudge is in the reflection but I’m guessing its more haze I need to remove. In person it looks a whole lot better. I hope to have final shots of it after the weekend. Keep your fingers crossed.
I ordered all the shower and tub trim from Ferguson today and hope to pick it up tomorrow or Friday so that I can install it this weekend. The rain shower head is in this order…can’t wait.
