In case you were interested, we finally got the tile finished in our new bathroom! YAY! Here are a few pictures. I will post more once the bathroom is completely finished. We are very happy with how it turned out. We didn’t do it ourselves, as planned, because we found a tile guy who was going to do it for such a reasonable price… And we decided that we didn’t want to risk an ugly do-it-yourself look. These pictures are from the point when the grout wasn’t totally cleaned off, but you can still get an idea of what it looks like. Unfortunately the bathroom is so tiny that you can’t really get a great picture of the whole thing. So, here we go:

This is a VAST improvement from:

The rest we will be doing ourselves starting this weekend, including texture, paint, install new baseboards, window trim, vanity, toilet. Can’t wait!!

We need suggestions on one thing. It wasn’t going to work out to do an in-the-wall shelf to put shampoo and stuff on in the shower. So, the tile is all finished and we have nothing. I guess we are just going to have to do one of those shower head hanging racks. Anyone have any other suggestions??

Another improvement that has been made this summer is limestone! Here are some pictures:

Ignore the dead grass.

Thanks for the stone Dad! It looks great!!

    My suggestion is to late – but we had them cut a square tile on the diagnal to make a triangle and insert into the corner for a self for shampoo etc.

    Happy anniversary. I remembered you on the 9th but failed to contact you. Enjoyed the updates! Shower looks wonderful! Wish we lived closer so Mike could help. He even loves to run the errands. This summer he is building a deck cover out of cedar at Ryan’s place. It looks so good!

    The shower looks so good! I am inspired (to start nagging Chad about doing the same thing with ours :). I wonder how those shampoo/conditioner dispenser things works. However, I’d probably do what you guys are thinking about doing which is just buy a nice-looking shower caddy.

    Awesome bathroom updates…keep sending the pics! I love to get to see things people are doing to their houses! Especially ya’lls! And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! 4 years has flown by! We will celebrate 12 years on the 25th…just doesn’t seem possible!

    I just read this last night in a magazine so maybe it will help you with your shower dilemma.

    The bathroom is looking great. I really like to stone work in the front yard. Looks like Talin learned how to do it right on my yard! As far as the shower, I would put a big medicine cabinet above the sink. Keep all your stuff there. All you have to do is jump in the shower, get all wet, jump back out (on a rubber mat), soap your self down, then jump back in a rinse off.

    Looks good. I have a similiar looking shower even with the old tile. How much was labor and tile?
    Thanks
