Oh the lovely porcelain throne .....

Before we get to the lovely white porcelain throne, this is what it looked like when we first began tiling the floor. We have since made some progress which will be posted in a bit. Daa Daa taa DAA!!! The item I have been waiting to have in my new home finally was installed and able to be used. Thank you to Village Pantry on 56th Street for happily providing us with a throne to use in the meantime. I know I'm about ready to kill this point, but you truly don't realize our modern conveniences until you don't have them, then you become so grateful for running water, a toilet, a bathtub, etc. Maybe this should be a good lesson in simplicity (what we really need vs. what we think we need)......I'll ponder that for a while.
Here are our shower walls about half tiled. This project is was so tedious and just seemed to take forever. I don't thinking shower tiling will be in Adam's plans for a very long time and he probably hasn't ever spent so much time sitting in the bathtub before.

As you can see "man's most used invention" duck tape was a viable tool for this tiling project. Of course even if it wasn't the appropriate tool Adam, as a man, probably could have found a way to use it :0
