New half bath!

I just can't stop home improving! The latest project is the new half bath, which involves knocking down a wall. I am very excited about this.

We're hoping to steal 9-12 square feet from our utility room and a closet, which may make this the smallest non-airplane bathroom ever. We've chosen black glass mosaic tile for the floor, with a few white tiles scattered throughout, a teeny tiny pedestal sink, a funky 60s light fixture, and subway tile for the backsplash.

We're going to cover one wall with chalkboard paint so friends can leave us their own bathroom stall graffiti. We've also got a contraband Canadian toilet that flushes way better than the water-saving ones you can get in the States.

The retro light fixture:

Stay tuned for updates!

I am exceedingly envious of your subway tile. LOVE it.

In our "retro" bath in Toledo we keep dry-erase markers handy so that people can leave messages all over the tiled walls.

It's been a fun little quirk over the years...

Is that a black peep?

2pretzels, that is so cool! I love it!

Will, thanks for reading! No, I think it's a goth rubber ducky.

How fun! What a great idea about the chalkboard paint (& the dry erase markers!)
