the farm: bathroom renovation episode 1. – tile experts?

I’ll start off by saying that my husband has strictly forbidden my use of power tools. I’ve had too many accidents with staple guns in my past – I’m working on that. I’m trying to display exemplary tool-belt diva behavior on the off chance that maybe someday I’ll get to use a nail gun. I…

  • UPDATE: I received a very speedy response from the ever-helpful staff at Recycling The Past.

    “Look like they’re from the 60’s or 70’s…don’t think they have much value. Careful may be Asbestos under those almost guaranteed! I’d look in the phone book for a good asbestos abatement firm that can properly remove them. Wear a mask if you do it yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Pfft. Just like that, my excitement is gone! I do NOT care if these are from the 60’s. They will be gone gone gone. ReplyCancel

  • Did I fail to mention that this is the only bathroom with a working shower?ReplyCancel

  • I was going to suggest calling Recycling the Past since they are the tile experts. But I would have assumed 60s porcelain tile too. Older tile tends to be smaller and have smaller grout lines too.ReplyCancel

  • I don’t know, they’re kind of fun! Somehow the idea of the bathroom all in white with the tiles… Maybe I’m just nuts from a day trip halfway cross country and back. I’ll toddle off to bed!ReplyCancel

    Thanks Kate. They are fun!ReplyCancel

    I don’t know much about the tiles. They were there when we moved in, and I didn’t like them.

    Have fun! LOLReplyCancel

  • I think the tile was made around 60’s.ReplyCancel

  • They don’t really look like valuable tiles and even if they were, simply because they belong in the past doesn’t make them good to look at. Get ’em out of there and put something worth stepping on!ReplyCancel

tagged again ;-)

My good old friend Mrs. Limestone has tagged me. For those that haven’t checked out her blog, Renovating A Brooklyn Limestone, it is a must-read. I’ve been addicted to her blog since the very beginning. This is not the first time I have been tagged, but thankfully the list isn’t as long, I think I…

  • hey! is that a nikko blue already in bloom in your yard???????????ReplyCancel

  • Hi Dawn!

    It was actually in bloom when I bought it (greenhouse) – so it bloomed a bit early. It wasn’t planted in this photo, I brought it out for the session to have some blue in the background.

    HOWEVER, my “Blushing Bride” hydrangeas are just starting to bloom. Do you have any Nikko Blue’s in your yard? When are they supposed to bloom? Should it be soon?


  • Marianna

    I love the running in the rain pics, you can’t even tell it was raining. The Feeley girls look like they had a lot of fun!!ReplyCancel

  • hey lady, my nikkos are budding but won’t bloom for some time…….I don’t pay much attn to dates, but since seeing your awesome landscape map I want to next year do one and track dates. I guess to say July, but I will keep you posted. I also ahve a whiteish/greenish hydrangea, unsure of it’s exact name and that one is also budding!ReplyCancel

  • Marianna, thank you!

    Dawn – yes, they’re already done for the year because they were greenhouse grown. I need to get them into the ground soon!ReplyCancel

    Laura, Thanks so much for the wonderful pictures. You did a great job and I’m thrilled with how many pictures I have to choose from. I can’t wait to frame some for a photo wall. I’m anxious for you to come visit us again and capture our new baby once she arrives and some more photos of Paige and Matthew.ReplyCancel
