Bathroom - Tub Walls are Finished!!!

Bathroom updates!


Instead of tile we will add a wood panel to the front of the bathtub.


~ Before ~

The strange box above the shower is now gone!!!
It's looks so much better!


It took us awhile to decide where to place the tiles. A lot of math had to be done. lol


I love the little corner shelf. The store only had one shelf that matched our tile. I would have loved to have two shelves on the same wall.


The updated bathroom is in the lodge room.


Here are the true colors of the tiles.

 ~ Before grout ~


I love having the tiles go all the way up and on the ceiling.

There were two floors in the bathroom. Neither one was in good shape.


 I bought floor tile that my husband is not so happy about. He ended up taking the backing off of them. They were uneven and would have looked like a child installed them. It's going to be very difficult putting them down as each one is a different size. Live and learn. :(


I found out that you need talent to grout. I dripped more grout on me and the tub. My sweet husband had to do the rest. I gave up trying. Then the caulk we used did not dry. The next day it was sticky and wet. I spent over an hour removing it all with a plastic putty knife.


We are now halfway finished with the room.


 Already tested and approved by my son :)


We are taking a break.

Thanks for stopping by.

XO,

It looks beautiful, Dee! I can't wait to see the whole bathroom finished.

(I had that same black & white floor tile in our bathroom before we renovated it.)

Anne said...

Love your new bathroom xox

It looks fabulous. Love the color of your tiles and going all the way to the ceiling, perfect. Beautiful job. Hugs, Marty

Diane said...

A beautiful job! Well done!!

Connie said...

Great Job! It is always much harder than they make it look on TV. Seems that by the time you are finished with a major project like this, you have learned so much about what to do and what not to do. Your bathroom is gorgeous!
Enjoy, Connie :)

You can do anything you put your mind too can't you? That was a hug job! I am so impressed. Very pretty and you and your hubby work good together.
Love, sandie

Linda said...

Beautiful job and the bathroom looks gorgeous. I also love tile on the ceiling. It is dramatic. I hope you enjoy. You make a great team.

Dee, So much work but so worth it. Doesn't it feel good to accomplish such a huge task? It looks fab, you should be proud of all your hard work.

Barbara said...

Oh Dee the new tile is beautiful! You two did a great job! I also love that it you took the tile onto the ceiling...great look.
Hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday evening!!!

Miss Val's Creations said...

This looks great Dee! All your hard work and patience is paying off! I look forward to seeing the wood panel alone the tub. That is such a unique idea! I would not have the tolerance for tiling and grouting so I really admire you and your husband taking on such tasks.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful tile, Dee, and the shower looks great with the added height.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Dee,

You certainly earned that break! Wow, there are so many unexpected surprises that cost you time and are aggravating. But the end result so far looks very good. Funny is that you both also decided for ceiling tiles, all around. Like we did downstairs except that we had still a shower built in and you only the low tub. But for cleaning and practicality it works well.
Enjoy your break.
Love to you,

Mariette

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

It looks gorgeous Dee! I love the tiles all the way up and love the pattern. Well done!

When we redid our master in our old house we put beadboard on the front of the tub and loved the look.

I hope you have a great week!
Pam

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Wow -- it looks stunning! I love the 'colored' tiles mixed in -- really adds great character and charm. UGG . . . that part about having to remove the sticky caulk made me cringe!

Meegan said...

Dee,
Thanks for your sweet comments when I received the "Newbie Spotlight" over at DebbieDoos. I REALLY appreciate your thoughts.
I am your newest follower :)
Your tile job is amazing!!

Pat said...

Dee,
wonderful looking new tub/shower enclosure I love the tile you chose. Pat

New End Studio said...

Terrific! I like the accent tiles you chose. Know what you mean about grouting- I did it for a backsplash wall and the consistency has to be just right, needed help to get the haze off the next day. You should write some ebooks on these skills and projects.

Suzy said...

Great tile job! The tile that you chose is so pretty. The finished product looks perfect.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

It looks beautiful Dee!! You guys did a great job! Love the idea of adding a wood panel to the side of the tub!

Misti @ Living On Cypress Hill said...

That looks great! My hub and I have our shower all torn out right now and our new shower "parts" should be delivered today. I'm so excited! Maybe in a few months (I wish sooner, but I'm a realist!), I'll be able to blog out it :)

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Beautiful tile. I love the update! Linda

Bliss said...

Looking good! What a difference just having the shower go all the way up. I had a bad tile pick once as well, and husband did the same thing.... take the back off so he could lay it straight. Live and learn!

~Bliss~

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love the tiles you chose...what a great color and design. I wanted to do my bathroom in these colors but I'm stuck with a tub and counter with streaks of blue so I'm going to paint my bathroom blue...soon, I hope! What a project! Your bathroom is gorgeous!

Cottage and Broome said...

Love the new look in your bathroom, can't believe you guys did it yourselves! You deserve a break! Enjoy thanks for sharing, Laura

nádya said...

Oh, Dee, what a hard work and a beautiful final result. I loved the tiles colour and pattern. In my bathrooms I have similar colour tiles. And the fittings are looking great I loved them, are they metal? Everything is just excellent!!!
Blessings,
Nadya

Cindy said...

Wow! What a fantastic tile job! It looks so much better with the tile on the ceiling. Much more open. Enjoy your break ;)

PAT said...

This is beautiful, Dee!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Your tub looks great. I would love to have our shower changed to a larger tiled one.

Tammy said...

Wow! It looks fantastic! Great colors. What a difference! I love your lodge room too. :)

Poppy said...

Oh my, what a beautiful job you've done here, Dee! I love love love the the tile colors! And removing that box above the shower opens up that area so nicely and I like how the tile goes all the way around and up on the ceiling:) Wonderful job! Now you can sit back and take a break. Enjoy your day:)Hugs,Poppy

Dee, it is beautiful and I am impressed that ya'll did it. Joe and I attempted tile once and failed big time. Well done. Olive

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh Dee that sounds a little like the bathroom from hell, with the tiles and grout. It looks fabulous now, I wonder why they use to make the ceilings in them low....To save on tiles??? Oh you deserve a break!

Woodworkin' & Good Eats said...

Hi there Dee, Well, my Connie said get over to your blog and check out your new bathroom. As usual she is right, you did a great job! I've never tried laying tile. It looks pretty tricky. Come on over and check out my latest post, I'm a little bite proud of it, too. Steve

La Vie Quotidienne said...

Wow! What a wonderful job...I like the way that the tile goes all the way up...that must have been very difficult to do. It really looks great.

D said...

It looks wonderful! I love how it goes around the entire bath section.

Jamie said...

Wow! Looks like all your hard work really paid off. Your shower is beautiful now! You sound like me. I always start something and realize I can't really do this after all, then my husband has to take over and finish my less than stellar work. :) ~ Jamie

Rhissanna said...

Wow, this is a big job. I'm so happy to see you're making progress. And yes, tiling and grouting are all horrible jobs. I've done it but I'm never volunteering again! Good look with the bathroom and keep us posted.

Debbiedoo's said...

Awesome tile work Dee!~ Love the color and the decorative in between. Nice job!

The Bold Abode said...

What an improvement! It was definitely genius to open up the ceiling and tile it... it really makes if look luxurious... I've never tiled, so I'm very impressed with you taking on such a big project!

Waldemar said...

I commend you for having an excellent house renovation. My favorite part of your newly renovated house is your bathroom. The tiles, the lighting, and the bath tub look so vibrant! I’d surely have a great time pampering myself with bubbles and water.
