Days 11 - 13 David tiled.
He did a FANTASTIC job, and it turned out beautiful!!! (This labor intensive stage was the hardest part for him.)
The porcelain tile we chose is from the Koshi Collection.
Shower Prep ::
Day 15 - David started installing the green hardy board in the shower. It's a special, moisture protection dry wall.
He couldn't install the bottom panels till the shower pan was installed.
Wall Color ::
This is the pebble tile that will go on a wall opposite the shower head.
Isn't she a beaut?
I was looking for a bluish-green paint color, one that would tie in with the pebble tile and the warm-colored vanity David built.
Wall color - Rookwood Blue Green, #2811 Sherwin Williams
The day after painting, David immediately installed the new toilet. As my mom said, "Back in business!" Ha ha
Dallas has a 1.2 gallon flush only, unless the stool has a dual flushing system. (You know, one for the big job! Ha ha ha!)
That one sits 2" taller than a normal toilet. (And my tall husband appreciates that nice perk!)
Shower walls ::
This was the BIG day that he and I had been looking forward to!
We went with cultured marble for the entire shower. We loved the look of it and when the estimate came within budget, we took a deep breath and went with it.
The color was called White On White, (which actually looks like a light gray on white), and we had ordered it in a matte finish.
We took it all the way to the back wall where the pebble tile will go (the green & white wall.)
We encased the window as well, to water proof it. The glass shower curtain will take about two weeks to arrive, so the shower cannot be used yet.
In a short amount of time, this project has come a LONG way. We are so excited about it. David keeps saying, "Gosh! I never imagined having a bathroom this nice." Neither did I. As I said before, he is quite blessed with some great talents. If we had to pay to have this done, it would not be happening.
At the same time, he's getting very tired. Being on the home stretch, I think the next thing he plans on working with is the tile for the back wall as we wait for the vanity top to be completed.
