sprucing up the master bath, part two

If you remember last fall I posted about sprucing up the master bath. This is what it looked like after the sprucing:


I did not expect there to be a part two but my General Contractor brother-in-law Jon wanted to get some practice at making concrete counter tops and asked if he could do one for our bathroom. Um, YES, please!

Jon also made concrete counter tops in his master bathroom (his master bathroom is way nicer than mine. I'm a little jealous!). Side note: Jon and Jen are selling their house so if you are local check it out. It's a lovely house.


The new after:


The crappy white counter top with the built in backsplash is gone and a lovely light gray concrete counter top with a glass tile backsplash is in.


I got lucky and found the glass tiles on clearance at Lowes. I spent only $10!! I did the tiling and grouting. It was my first experience with tiling and I am pretty proud of my work! :)

It looks amazing! Any chance of getting a tutorial on the concrete counter tops? Because I really really want to do this at my house. Or if not a whole tutorial, just a few details -- like, did he cast them in place or somewhere else and then install them?

Looks great!
