Jeffrey Court Renovation Challenge Week 3: The Tile is Here!
It’s week 3 of the Jeffrey Court Renovation Challenge and the tile is here! I am so excited to show you my selections and let you know how things are going and to let you all know how you can start voting!!! (*Directions can be found at the end of this post!)
This post is sponsored by Jeffrey Court. As always I only support and promote brands I truly love! You can read my full disclosure here.
Once I ordered the tile I really didn’t think about how it would be delivered to the house. But then the shipping company called to schedule a delivery time and I was surprised when they asked if our neighborhood could accommodate a semi-truck. Wow, seriously? I had only ordered 200 square feet and that didn’t seem like that large of a load.
Luckily, our neighborhood streets can handle semis because that is exactly what it showed up in! Turns out it wasn’t that large but was the best way to get it safely to its destination! My husband was sweet and came home early to help with the unloading. The delivery guy was great and only one box was dropped and a few pieces damaged! 😉
The Tile is Here
We immediately brought some of the tile in and my husband started laying it out to get more of a visual on what it would look like. I’m not going to lie…I had this moment of panic and self doubt about my tile choices. I feel silly saying this but it kept me up that night, worrying about what I had gotten myself into and if I had made the right choices. Don’t get me wrong, the tile is gorgeous (as you can see!) I was more worried about the tile and pattern I picked and if it would all work together. I’ve never actually chosen tile besides the subway tile for our kitchen back splash. Plus, our entryway is the first thing you see as you enter our home so that adds a bit of extra pressure. Things are officially starting to get real!
My husband, God bless him, reassured me that it all looked good and that it was going to work out. He made me relax and feel better and said that he loved the tile. The next day Lou, our tile guy, came over and said the same thing. He loved my choices! So that night I was able to sleep. 😉I was back in the game!
Next, we are working on the design (so pumped about this part) and it looks like we will start laying the tile this week. I can hardly wait…I’m sure I won’t be sleeping much once the tile starts going in. Not because I’m worried, but because I am SO excited and because I know the voting will start soon! The competitive side of me is totally pumped up!
