So the wall that the sink was on got knocked out to make room for the shower.I did get to pick everything out but I had to do it fast.When he decided to do this he didn't waste anytime.
We had just enough travertine tile to do the floor,right down to the last tile.I had seen it on a great deal at home depot months earlier and just bought it on a whim,not having a clue what I would use it for...got lucky.The vanity is certainly not a one of a kind,got it at a local lumber store for $100.The mirror and glass shelf were a tiny splurge from home depot.The mirror tilts and is perfect for when he shaves he tells me.
I am sure you can see some of the grout still on the tile in this picture,it is all off now though.I had an idea to try something different on the ceiling of the shower and so we used a product called miroflex tile.It has that old tin look and claimed to be extremely waterproof.I am pretty happy with it except I still wish that I had chosen one that was a little plainer and closer to the color of the tiles.We looked at doors and I wanted a frame less glass door but we would have had to special order it and they were very expensive.I did a little research and decided to give it a try without a door.We knew we could always add it on later if we thought it was needed....luckily,it's not.Water doesn't splash out and it makes it feel very open and larger.The little glass blocks have lights behind them for extra lighting in the shower space.The ceiling is quite low so it wasn't possible to have them in the ceiling part of the shower.
We kept the same toilet but added a cabinet for extra storage.This cabinet had sandblasted glass in it that was damaged.They let me pick out any glass that I wanted at no extra charge! I chose this one because it camouflages items well and the glass is exactly the same as the glass blocks.
I bought paint and the color was so bad,I think he might have mixed it wrong because I can't believe I picked something so far off from what I had in mind.I ended up using some of the left over paint from the kitchen,added some of the dining room paint color to it and who know what else and it turned out to be just what I had in mind.My husband thinks I'm crazy when I do that but it wasn't the first time and it won't be the last either.
So there it is,I've never used it but they tell me it's a good shower,I'm a bath girl.We are currently planning out and making purchases for my bathroom redo which hopefully gets going over the next couple of months.I have been able to take my time making every decision for that project slowly unlike this whirlwind project.
