Late last night after posting my previous blog post, Jeff and I headed up to the house to check out how the tile ended up in the bathroom. I snapped a few pictures with my phone and thought I would share them with you.
This is a picture of the completed shower (although the new fixture has not been installed). To give you an idea of the scope of work, the tile that starts above the towel bar in the shower (just above the decorative border tile) is all new. We carried it all the way up as high as the ceiling goes - over the ceiling and down the inside wall of the shower. It finishes by following along the archway into the shower. It doesn't seem like much work, but tiling that arch was more than a day in itself!
Here is a picture of the completed floor. The toilet needs to be reinstalled, but the tile is pretty fantastic looking! Installing this tile isn't nearly as complicated as the wall tile is, although it looks very intricate, it comes in pre-assembled 12"x12" sheets that interlock together.
Above is a more detailed shot of the ceiling of the shower. We had a similar ceiling in our shower in our last house and often had issues with humidity and moisture getting caught up on that ceiling. It led to issues like paint peeling and also constant water drop/streak marks on the paint. This will be much easier to manage - especially since this bathroom will be getting so much use! Now all we need is the wallpaper and new light fixtures...and a good cleaning of course! So that's a recap on the bathroom!
And now, just for fun, a few shots of the girls:
