I'm in the process of sourcing and pricing all the materials needed for my bathroom reno. The original plan was to keep the tub and work around it by adding some wood detail to the apron and new tile for the top as well as replacing the water jet covers, the water jet panel and the faucet. My goal was to keep the cost down by making my twenty year old tub look as pretty as possible. Once I added up the cost to make all these changes it got me thinking about free standing tubs and possibly finding a good deal. I don't know if I'm interested in putting lipstick on a pig if there isn't any significant cost savings. Keep in mind that the labour and plumbing fixtures for free standing tubs can really add up so do your research. I'm on the hunt and hoping to find a good deal so wish me luck!

I came across this image on Pinterest and fell in love with this tile floor. Yes, I said TILE! It's a tile that looks like wood. It comes in beautiful shades of either grey, brown or a white washed look. I have added it to my short list as an option for my ensuite bath. It will cost less in labour to install than stone and also be extremely durable and very low maintenance. I also love that I could lay it in a herringbone pattern as it comes in either a 6x36 or 9x36 tile. Everyone needs a little herringbone in their life, don't you think??

I'm saying goodbye to From My Living Room and I am in the process of moving my blog over to my website at Andrea Johnson Design. I have met so many people through this little blog that I started in 2010 and I hope that will continue. It just makes sense to have both my website and my blog all in the same place. In the process I will be losing Google Friend Connect and all you wonderful followers that have supported me from the beginning. To make this transition a little easier I have already added a new bloglovin' button to my current blog and you can continue to follow me once I move over to Andrea Johnson Design. So if you love me then show me some bloglovin'!

As you know our bathroom will be under going some much needed updating and I've been busy putting together some ideas of how I want it to look and feel. I'm thinking white and classic with a hint of colour only through accents.

Some options I'm thinking about:
Accent band on shower wall
Hardware option for vanity
Two mirrors for above vanity
