DIY Shower Glass Installation

Our shower is done! Well, not quite. We still might frost our shower glass, or add decals to it. But for all intents and purposes, it’s done and completely shower-ready! We knew we wanted a portion of the shower wall to be glass, but no more than that. So we framed it all out and planned to tackle the logistics later. And now it’s later…

Shower Jet Installation

We’ve taken a week off from the shower due to some other things that came up (and enjoying Mother’s day weekend of course) but we’re happy to report that we’ll be done by the end of the week! Joe worked nearly 70 hours last week, so we didn’t get much done at home, but that’s ok because we were waiting for our glass piece to get precisely cut. Now that we’ve got that, we’re right back in there. It’s a perfectly rainy week for us to wrap up.

P.S. We’ve now officially lived in the house for 1 year! Happy house-versary! Here’s a throwback of us on moving in day.

It’s literally what cements everything together and makes it look unified. If you missed the grouting tips, go back to our shower floor post and brush up. Otherwise, enjoy!

DIY Shower Tile

We’ve come a long way with this little shower of ours. Once you see the tile, you’re going to stop wondering if all this work is worth it and jump on the DIY bandwagon! We chose a really easy, affordable tile to work with, without a lot of crazy accents or small shapes to cut. But dang. I don’t think we could have asked for a better effect.

Bathroom Remodel: Grouting Shower Floor

Let’s see here. When we last left off tiling, we were finishing the bathroom floor. It’s really not a bad week to be working in the bathroom in this gloomy weather. The past week it was so nice outside that we took our cue from the sun and got a head start on yard work. We’ve managed to get the yard cleaned up and fertilized, and some plants planted as well. Just in time for these April showers.

Rustic or Modern Décor?

That is the dilemma at hand. We’re putting the finishing touches on the bathroom, and it’s time to make some style choices to complement our tile. Now that we can see how the paint and tile look, we have a framework for what the rest of the room will look like. Time to tie it all together!
