The brand new Vicostone quartz countertop has been put in within the hallway toilet! The colour/sample is named Elysian, and it’s the remnant from what I bought for our grasp toilet transform. I’ve to confess that after they introduced the countertop in and set it in place, my very preliminary response was, “Oh no! It’s horrible!” 😀

It took me a second to come back to my senses and notice that sure, I hate it with the vainness shade, however the vainness shade goes to be modified. And sure, I hate it with the backsplash/accent tile that’s at the moment there, however that tile goes to be swapped out.

In order of proper now, it’s truly form of troublesome to understand my new Vicostone quartz countertop within the toilet as a result of it’s surrounded by issues that also must be modified. However right here’s a take a look at how the countertop turned out.

And I’ve to confess that it was a little bit of a shock to my system seeing that gentle grey in there after eight years of residing with a darkish stained wooden countertop.

I made that wooden countertop eight years in the past, and I bear in mind being informed that wooden in a rest room would by no means final. Nevertheless it lasted eight years, and it’s nonetheless in nice situation! You may see how I made it right here.

Now in case you’re questioning why on the planet I’d begin altering issues out on this toilet proper now whereas I’m neck deep in my studio challenge and making an attempt to get the ball rolling on our addition, that implies that you in all probability missed this put up. This was undoubtedly not on my to do listing any time quickly, however generally issues don’t fairly go in accordance with plan.

Anyway, I’m nonetheless planning on utilizing this tile (the unfastened tile that’s leaning behind the tap) within the picture beneath. You may see how a lot cooler grey it’s than the present tile, which reads very heat and virtually brown in locations.

They’d no concept the right way to get that countertop out of there, and fairly actually, I’m undecided the right way to, both. 😀 However since I’m the one who reworked this toilet and constructed that space, I feel I’ll have a a lot better probability at getting it out of there than they’d. And I can assure you that I will discover a means. So I simply requested them to depart that countertop with me and let me do it.

So I’m fairly excited to have this new Vicostone quartz countertop in right here. What I’m not enthusiastic about is having to dwell with this in between state, the place issues are undone and different issues conflict with one another, in the intervening time.

It’s at all times a bit disappointing when a room goes from that “completed” column again into the “unfinished” column. However that’s the character of homeownership, and of constructing modifications because the years roll on. And after eight years of residing with a darkish wooden countertop, that is an thrilling change.
