Grouting the Shower Walls
The tile starts to come together in the final stages here. It’s been a labor of love, but the shower is just about done. Tiling was the latest hurdle, so grouting pales in comparison. 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!
Shower Tile Before & Afters
Here’s how we started. Thin set and spacers.
And here’s Joe caulking up the seams.
It’s really starting to look good.
Joe’s rain shower head is looking pretty snazzy! The coolest thing about the shower is that it echoes. What a change from our teeny tiny shower before. The one where you’d bump your knees on it while on the john. To get the sheets of river rock to stick on the ceiling, the trick is patience. The thin set is extremely strong, but you need to hold each piece up there for a little bit to ensure it fully takes hold.

Side walls before grout
We just need our piece of glass before we can show it all. What a world of different grout makes! This pewter shade was just right.
We used a mocha for the bathroom floor, in case you were wondering.
On the Horizon
Our DIY game is still going strong with some custom-built accessories that we’re excited to install and reveal. Joe’s my Pinterest board dream maker, and I really think we nailed some shelves. I’m stoked to get this shower wrapped up and the next few projects out the door. It’s terribly nice outside, so let’s not spend it all indoors, ok?
