We have showers! Well, kind of. They're not functioning yet but they're getting close. Let's start with the Master bathroom shower. It looks HUGE but the actual usable/splashable space makes up about 2/3's of the below green area.
And just like that, tile magically appears. (If only it were that easy and that quick!) We opted for a ceramic 8"x 24" tile. It's called Double Gray but should be named 'greige' because sometimes it's beige and sometimes it's gray. Regardless, I'm super pleased with it and love how the sheen picks up the reflection of the window.
The ceilings in our Master bath are vaulted and we're fortunate enough to have an existing beam. The previous owners painted it white. I wanted to bring in a little warmth to the space so John and I brainstormed ideas of how to do this on the cheap. Guess what we ended up using?
Plywood utility panels to the rescue. They come in 8' x 4' sheets for around $24/each. After a little wood conditioner and stain, we ripped them into strips and nailed them right over the existing beam.
See how thin they are? Definitely something you appreciate when you're working 16 feet in the air and holding them overhead.
I'd say it's a pretty good fix!
Well looky there, those plywood utility panels are making another appearance. This time we used them to plank the walls. Below they're laying in our garage with a coat of primer.
And now you get a little glimpse into the installation and shower tile. If you read Week 2 of the ORC, you'll remember I scored this tile for $.87 square foot. That just makes me like it even more!
The Tile Shop and liked it far before I even realized I'd actually end up using it. Months later, I brought home a sample for my master bathroom, nixed it, then it sat and collected dust until I had an 'ah ha' moment and realized it was perfect for the guest bath.
Any guesses what the heck I plan on doing with this Craigslist find?
