Bathroom Floor - Part 3: Done !

Finally, I'm getting to this last part (Part 1 and Part 2) of the bathroom floor.  So sorry to keep you waiting!  So the last thing that I needed to do to finish my tiling project was to put new quarter rounds on the bottom of the baseboard.  I measured the perimeter of the bathroom (I can use this as a real-life example in my class this year !) and went to Lowe's and picked up three, white, eight foot long quarter rounds.  I made sure they were already white so that I didn't have to prime them.

My neighbor came over with her trusty manual miter saw and we got to work.

She helped me to figure out which way to cut each quarter round so that the corners matched.  Each end needed a 45 degree angle cut so it fit in the corner.  She actually did the measuring while I watched and held the wood so it didn't slip.  I'm a bad DIY blogger since I can't quite explain how to cut the quarter rounds for the corners.

We did have one measuring mishap…I always seem to measure wrong!  We cut off about an inch too much.  We just cut another piece and fit it in, using some wood glue to make sure it stayed in place.  Then I just added wood filler to make it smooth and flush.

After the all quarter rounds were cut and placed by the baseboard, we used  finishing nails to attach them to the base.  We nailed them in, then used a nail punch tool to tap the nails in deeper.  Once the nails were in deeper, I used wood filler to fill in the holes.  I just put the filler on my finger and shoved it in the hole, then wiped away the excess.  

After all the nail holes were filled with the filler, I took some caulking and put it on the top of the quarter round.  The caulk came with it's own smoother piece and it worked wonderfully!

Once the caulk was dry, I took some white paint we had lying around the house and gave the quarter rounds and baseboard a quick paint job.  Let dry and done !

The pictures don't do it justice.  It is amazing what a difference the tile makes in the bathroom floor.  It looks so much cozier and relaxing now.  

Ok - we aren't completely done.  We still need to replace the toilet, vanity top, and paint the cabinet before it's finished, but it's looking good !

Tile anything lately?

Now you can Do It Yourself Too !



  1. Very clean and nice job, i don't think if i will be able to do that with that much perfection as i don't know much about flooring and stuff but it sure looks easy.

  2. It often comes into question what is the best wall mount for such big TVs, can you mount a 75-inch tv on the wall, are tv wall mounts universal, what size screws are used to mount a Samsung tv, wall mount for 82 inch samsung tv for wallmountedhub and even can you hang a curved tv on a regular wall mount? Read till the end to have all such questions answered.

A Tisket. A Tasket. A Wall Full of Baskets

Soo...after my new found obsession with Pinterest started, I came across this wonderful idea for small bathroom storage . Our upstairs "guest" bathroom doesn't have a lot of storage space, our sink is narrow with little cabinet space, and I'm not very in to the shelf/cabinet over the toilet idea.  So I was thrilled when I saw this picture.  I love baskets because they are a versatile way to store anything and they look good doing it.  I was also excited because the current towel bar over the toilet was not centered, which really bothered me, so now I had an excuse to take it down.   For the project: Tools Needed: Screw Driver Drill Putty knife (if needed) Paint roller (if needed) Paint tray (if needed) Level Measuring tape Pencil Materials Needed:   Towel Bars Baskets Something to attach baskets to bar - I used craft ribbon Spackling (if needed) Sand paper (if needed) Self-adhesive drywall joint tape (if needed) Primer and P

Fallin' For Tulle Wreaths

Pinterest is at it again.  While browsing Pinterest during my daily hourly look through, I found this pretty fall wreath : Since it is on Etsy, I started to look for an online tutorial on how to make a tulle wreath.  I've never seen one before, so I wasn't sure where to start.  Google makes searching for things so easy and I quickly found this  tutorial.  It was very helpful. I got most of my materials at a store called WOW Outlets in Pennsylvania while visiting my family (yes, another trip to PA).  The foam ring is 11" .  I originally started with a 12" ring, but felt it was too big.  I had almost the whole wreath covered with tulle, didn't like it, and took it apart for the smaller ring. I got some of the tulle at the same store, some at the $1.00 section in JoAnn's, and had some cut from a bolt at JoAnn's.  I also purchased some gold ribbon as well. The flower, leaves, and scarecrow are all from fall decorations I had lying around the ho

Spring Hanging Towels

I just wanted to share what I started over Easter break and finished yesterday in between church, hunting for Easter baskets, and eating tons of food.  My Gram's birthday and my godmother's birthday is in April, so I told them I'd make an Easter hanging towel for them.  I had four towels, so I was able to make 8 all together.  Only five are shown: Since I last made the shamrock one, I did find out that I can make a buttonhole with my sewing machine.  However, I can't find the manual so I still don't know how to use it.  So I'm still sewing snaps on the towels like I did  here .  I did figure out that I can sew the button on at the same time as the snap, so that made it MUCH easier than the first time I did it.  I actually like the snaps and will probably keep with it even if when I do figure out how to use it. I gave all of them away as gifts, except for one.  I think they turned out just springy :) I hope that you all had a blessed Easter !
