the floor in my bathroom has always been something of an eyesore and no matter how much i scrubbed, it never seemed clean. it's been there for god knows how long and while i sure it was once white, the linoleum has turned a dingy yellow. it reminds me of un-brushed teeth. sick.
anyway, i got it in my head that i had to do something about it...but what? my bathroom is all white (which only made the yellow floor more obvious) and i decided that a black floor would look smashing. but i wanted a matte back floor, because i thought that glossy black tiles would just look too tacky. now...where was i to find matte black floor tiles? BF teased me about how I'm always making up things in my head that dont really exist, but I knew I could figure this one out. and i did! i found a great solution: RUBBER!
while searching online, i found RubberCal, a company in SoCal with all sorts of rubber flooring solutions; mats, tiles, you name it. i'll save you all the blah blah blah about the whole process, but basically, they delivered some sheets of rubber right to my door, i made a template of my bathroom, and now I have a gorgeous black floor!
the whole project was so easy! and whats more, the floor is made from recycled rubber, so it's enviro-friendly. oh, AND the rubber is so heavy, i didnt need to tack it down or use any stinky adhesives, so whenever i move, i can literally just pick the rubber up and return the bathroom to it's original...er, splendor. to top it all off, the whole project- the rubber, shipping, and tools and materials- cost about $100.
im so proud of myself :) you can check out the whole process here.
up next...the yard! stay tuned as i install sod for the first time on Saturday!
