Have you ever had a project that got pushed to the back burner and just stayed there, something you just keep putting off and putting off? We SO have one of those. Last March (as in March 2013) we decided that we were going to tear out our icky master bathroom and re-do it ourselves. It had been in desperate need of some TLC since we moved in in 2009. When we moved in, it looked like this:
The accordion door was kind of killing me, so we ripped it out as soon as we moved in, put up a shower curtain, painted the wall, and left it that way for four years.
As you can see, the shower surround was in pretty bad shape (I cleaned it all the time, I promise! It was stained from the previous owner!), and since it wasn’t made for a shower curtain, we were worried that water was going to get out and rot the floor or cause mold or something. So last March we took the whole bathroom down to the studs.
Woohoo! We were on a roll! But then, as it so often does, life happens. We began working on other projects in the house and since it was easy enough to share a bathroom with the Cs, this project got pushed back further and further. Every few weeks we’d make a little bit of progress. We poured a cement base and put up some hardibacker.
And eventually we put in some insets…
But then this week, something incredibly exciting happened…
We were able to start tiling!!!! Yay! Finally there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel! Now you would think that with all of this time to plan and dream about what this bathroom would be, that I would have everything all picked out and ready to go for when the tiling process is finished, right? Um, no. I seem to be stuck. Maybe I’ve had too much time to mull this over, but I can’t seem to make a decision to save my life. So I decided to ask for your help. Keeping in mind that the adjoining bedroom looks like this…
…I’d like your help picking out the perfect shower curtain! I feel like once I have that in place as my main piece, everything else will fall into place around it, so indulge me for a minute, okay?
Help me get un-stuck! Let me know in the comments which shower curtain is your favorite!
Thanks so much for your help! I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe we’ll actually be able to finish this room in the next month or two! 😉 Stay tuned for more updates on how it’s going… it shouldn’t be much longer now! Have a great week!
Have you ever had a project that’s taken forever to complete?
