DIY Shower Tile
Tiling a shower is where the fun really comes in. We’ve been so excited for this phase of the bathroom remodel. And for good reason! It’s actually starting to look like a shower. Joe’s dad gave us a huge hand so we were able to knock out all the tile in a weekend. Check it out!
We planned out the floor first, starting in the back corner, and worked our way out from there. Once we had the stones cut and placed where we liked them, we got out the thin set and got to work tiling.
Just a few of the tools you’ll need.
Our river rock came in 1’x1′ pliable square sheets.
We liked this stuff because it feels cool on the feet, but it’s flat and smooth. It doesn’t have any jagged edges.
We first cut our sheets in place.
We also liked this stone because we could easily snap off individual rocks and move things around.
Then we got the thin set tile mortar out and got to work securing them one by one.
Let it setup and dry for a day before grouting.
I’m not allowed to show you the finished product just yet, but here’s a peek. Don’t tell Joe.
