egads, do I need to rip out my cement board and start again?


Very helpful info.


You guys rock.
Now if you can co-sign my choice in paint color so hubby will stop rolling his eyes, that'd be great.

I don't know if this will make sense, but....
When Im reading a really good book and suddenly notice Im 2/3 of the way thru, I get a sad feeling that my enjoyment is almost over. I want to slow down and prolong the experience.
THATS how Im feeling with this bathroom reno!
The travertine has been laid (Im in love, I want to move into the bathroom and live there). We are sealing it today. Then grout. Sealing again. Then putting the tub/shower unit, vanity, toilet and little extras like lights and such in.

Poor poor hubby. I snuck out yesterday to begin sourcing stuff for the kitchen remodel. Poor bugger isn't even gonna get a break.

Thankyou all so much for your advice along the way.

Nice job!

Now take that photo, get yourself a program that allows you to input your photo and then change the wall colours to see what a difference another paint scheme will do for you.

That is if both of you are not 100% happy with that compromise job you already have. Sorry don't like it - especially with travertine.

LOL....the paint color was a major source of trouble in this house. ~shrug~ I like it, hubby likes it, I guess that's what counts. Besides....if I even thought of repainting right now, he'd need a mini-mental vacation in a facility somewhere. We've moved on to stage 2 of the reno's and currently have NO kitchen. Nothing. No ceiling, no floors, no nothing. I never thought bbq-ing would get old....but I miss my stove.

Gotcha!

I am following your kitchen reno, by the way and I was glad you did forego the use of a travertine...

Good luck!

While I lovelovelove the look of travertine, I didn't want to have to do the extra prep necessary to support it.....nor did I want the hassle of having to be all Martha-Stewart like around my kitchen. I want to be able to spill stuff and not treat lemon juice or vinegar as if its a harzardous substance. Plus...bonus...porcelain is cheaper!
