Let's Travel To....My Casita: Bathroom Edition

There was a lot of Pinterest inspo that contributed to our budget-friendly bathroom design. Peep our hexagon tile that I LOVE! The tile was on the pricier side but seeing as how the space is relatively small, we decided to go for it and splurge on the tile. Una vez al a ño no hace da ño! Let’s start with our bathroom mirror, which was made by Nick *insert heart-eyes here* He spent some time on YouTube looking for ideas until he found one that we both liked.
