I'm so happy to welcome you to the MapleStone Home blog! This is where I, along with my wonderful DH Jeff (who's my builder of dreams...whatever I dream up or inspiration I find, he builds); share all the diy projects, crafts, hobbies, recipes, what I've read and happenings within our North Carolina home.

Guest Bathroom Reveal

When we bought our home in 2009 I knew eventually that the builder grade bathroom tile would be replaced sometime in the future. Fast forward to 2021...Jeff and I were on one of our many visits to Lowes when I spotted this tile. I knew immediately that was the tile. I also wanted a new sink, vanity, mirror, toilet, tub door and lights. We bought everything needed for the project and got to work.


We removed the sink, vanity, toilet & mirror.  Then began removing the tile floor. 

WOW, was that a job and messy!!

We decided to hire a plumber to install the toilet. Putting the new cabinet in was a so fun (sarcasm), or specially since the walls weren't square! 

I picked out 12×24 tile.

We had to wait for the tub doors to come in, but the kids & grandkids were coming in, so a temporary shower curtain was hung.

Here's what it looks like once the doors came in.

I love the way it turned out!
