Shower Power and My Love Affair With a Chandelier

Our tile friend came by last night to let us know that there was a cancellation, and hence, an opening in his BUSY schedule for TOMORROW! {Which is now today} and wondered if we wanted him to do the shower, wow. Normal people might say that we hadn't even LOOKED at master bathroom tile, as in ever. Normal, right minded people would thank him for thinking of us and tell him we weren't ready, we didn't even have the tile. Normal people might have laughed it off...Well, apparently we aren't normal people. We said yes and right now he is tiling our master bathroom shower!

This meant that we made an appearance at Lowe's at the butt crack of the morning to look, discuss, pick out and {gulp} purchase tile. So this is what was in our budget AND tickled our fancy. The top photo is of the 2x2 tile that will be on the floor in the shower. The photo below is the large tile that will be on the walls.

And here are two photos of the accent tile, one with and one without the flash to showcase both the stone and the glass that will be featured as our accent tiles a bit over midway up the shower walls.

With flash to showcase the color of the glass pieces.

And while we were at it, you know being methodical and rational... we headed over to the bathroom vanity area and picked up this pretty young thing. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! We will each get 2 drawers, a small and a large and since there is no linen closet in {darn, I forgot my towel...running naked quickly and discreetly} close proximity it will allow us to store towels below on the shelving area along with a short waste bin since it's large and in charge and just fit in our tiny master bathroom.

We still have to purchase, and install ourselves, the master bathroom floor tile, a faucet and new light fixture...but other than that we just got ourselves a new master bathroom! It looked like this last night

Stay tuned for what it looks like later this evening.
And now for my new favorite light fixture...

Ok, so I realize that this isn't exactly some fancy photo shoot that really captures the ambiance of the chandelier, but's our house and my crappy camera so we're working with it. I'm sure a night photo would be best but I'm too excited to wait. But, seriously...I LOVE this chandelier. I think it's rustic but goes with our more modern industrial pendant lights too. Lowe's has several great chandeliers and smaller chandeliers right now...they mimick some of the great industrial/modern lights that are popular without the fancy price tag.

Here's one of it up close and personal.

And from a different angle, sigh...I love it.
