It's Done!

Oh. My. God.  Finally - no more mini road trips to take a shower.  The bathroom turned out great.  Walker wanted it lighter and brighter.  I wanted it to "feel" like the beach without doing the whole room in seashells and fishie wall paper.  I think we both got our wish.  The hard part now is waiting 24 hours for the silicone to set before we use it.  My mom's basement shower is fine, but our new shower is better.  For one thing, we don't have to don cold weather gear to get to it.  The only things that still need to be done are to replace the fan light and to add two little pieces of trim wood at the bottom of the wall and the whole bathroom will have been updated. . We've asked three electricians about the fan light, so far.  None of them want to do it, as it involves going into the unfinished attic to hook up the motor to the vent pipe.  I'm so excited to have my bathroom functional again I don't even care. Here are the before and afters:

I loved the wall color we had before, but we couldn't find things to match it other than what we already had..  Walker didn't like the old shower curtain.
This is the "tent" we made inside the shower after the tile started falling off.
We put in that sink and counter top about a year ago.  The old sink was the same wonky color as the old tub.
This is what the shower looked like after  the first day of installation.
Ta~dah! The sink area now.  You can't see it but there is a new high efficiency light fixture under the shelf over the sink.
The new shower!


  1. Very nice. I think you will love the versatility of the white tile. Did you get a new tub or have the old one refinished?

  2. We got something called a tub liner. It's a custom fitted insert that goes right over the old tub. It's made of thick acrylic and cleans really easily. We did the same thing in our old house and loved it. The walls are one piece of acrylic so the only seams are at the bottom where the walls touch the tub.
