Hello! Well, we’ve made it to the halfway mark of the One Room Challenge. YIKES! We still have so much to do, so I will just celebrate our ALMOST tiled entryway for a moment. To recap our previous weeks catch up here:
On to this week. We worked on tiling the entryway.
I knew from the beginning we wanted the entryway tiled in penny tile. It fits the age of the home, and we have black and white penny tile in the upstairs bathroom. I also knew I wanted to provide an Instagram moment for the house since it will be an Airbnb. Something similar to these.
I will post a tutorial after the One Room Challenge. But I am so excited about how it turned out.
Laying out the words. The house is two blocks from Lake Michigan, which locals call the “Fresh Coast” or sometimes the “Third Coast.” So I played around with that until I settled on….
So, as I said, we are ALMOST finished. We still need to grout! But I am truly excited about how it turned out. I am not going to lie; it was TIME-CONSUMING. But well worth it. Next week we are working on trim and paint!
-Until next time,
