Bathroom Update- Tile

We last left off at the end of May when we were texturing and painting the bathroom and it was all prepped for tiling.  Then we were out of town for I think 5 weekends straight.  Then it got hot and we just didn't want to tile.  Then I finally said "okay, for real, we have no plans for this weekend whatsover, I don't even have any chores to get, let's tile."  And tile we did.

In roughly two days (spanned over two weekends), this is where we are.

We've also just recently tiled the floor of the bathroom where the toilet will go.  Our tile guy, who set all the cement board and re-sloped our shower floor, is going to be coming over Tuesday or move our niches just a tad upwards so they line up perfectly with the grout joints and then seal them up watertight.  After that is done, we'll be able to tile the rest of the walls, do the mosaic band and insert of the niches, and put the shower floor in.  Then we grout, seal it, put the toilet back in, get shower curtain rod and we're done!!!!! For now.  At least it will FINALLY be back to a useable bathroom.

We'll save up some money for a new sink countertop and frameless custom shower door.  We also want to eventually strip the sink cabinet and repaint it white.
