From Plastic Sheeting to Tiles

Now that we have a fully functioning bathroom on the ground floor, it's time to get back to the family bathroom in the basement. This was our first usable bathroom, complete with plastic sheeting over the durock walls of the shower. I was almost starting to think that bright blue was going to remain our bathroom colour of choice. But I'm back to the neutral colours for the permanent finishes, opting for colour in the accessories.

We selected a small white tile for the main walls and I crazily thought it was a great idea to cover every square inch of wall with tile. While I love the look, it took forever to install and grout. Plus even though we're using laser levels to keep us straight, there's no getting away from the fact that a 100 year old house, is not. So we've got a small area above the door that we just couldn't figure out how to get the tiles to meet up perfectly. You live and learn!

Watch the blue disappear...
