Shower reveal

The master bathroom shower is DONE! And it's gorgeous! Michael really out-did himself this time.

At the end of this post he had finished the main accent tile wall and was starting on the side walls. That was a l.o.n.g. process.

Here's the before and after. Wow! We've come a long way, baby! (remember...the shower area used to be the closet for the main floor bedroom - and the door you can see on the right side of each picture never used to be there)
The bathroom itself isn't entirely finished...but it's definitely getting closer. There's still some touch-up painting and we need to install a glass shower door but we finally are able to use the shower and not worry about waking the kids up in the morning by running upstairs to get ready. Woohoo!
The one mistake I feel like we made in the kids' shower was to use little tiny accent tiles at the bottom of the 'soap nook.' (you know - the little cutout that holds the shampoo and soap) I hate how yucky the tile gets underneath the shampoo bottles. For our shower we remedied this little issue by using one slab of tile to line the bottom of the nook. Lesson learned.

Overall, there are six different profiles of marble tile in our tiny master bathroom. It all works together to make a sparkly, pretty, light and bright room. 

It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since we ordered the shower hardware (with jets). Now it's finally installed and I couldn't be happier with it. Here you can see the jets and how ridiculously high we mounted the shower head. It's pretty much at the ceiling - which is a feature my tall man loves! :)
