Shower Finished

For the last 2 months my husband has been working on the shower in our master bedroom.  He removed all of the existing tile down to the studs, replaced some of the plumbing, replaced some of the studs and then hung new sheet rock. 

This is the only picture I had of our old shower.  The shower is in the center of the house and we use it as our tornado shelter.  I took this picture during a tornado warning.  Each cat is snuggled in their crate.

We hired a professional to do the tile work and I am so glad we did.  He told me where to go to buy the tile (he gets a really good discount). 

So I went and picked out the tile.  These are the 13"x13" tiles we used on the walls.

I picked out pebbles for the floor and to create a decorative stripe around the shower.

  The shower looks much better in person.  These pictures don't do it justice. 

And "ta-da" our new shower.  There is no door, I hate cleaning a shower door.  The door knob you see is the door going into the bathroom.  He put in 4 shelves for all our soaps and shampoos.

We have a new shower head and 2 more shelves for whatever.

I had to use the flash to get this picture so the color is a little different.  This is a larger, lower shelf that he added just for me.  I place my foot on this shelf when I am shaving my legs.

Another project done.  Now I will start painting the bathroom walls, painting the cabinets and adding new hardware and ......  it never ends. 

Until next time,
