Cottage Shower

Several years ago we realized that we needed guest quarters; the sofa bed in the office wasn't cutting it anymore. Fortunately we had a shed on our property that could be converted. Two years and countless dollars later, it was finished. It was even photographed for a magazine which folded before the pictures could be published. The photographers sold the pics to another publication, but I thought I'd show it to you here.

This is the shower.

Materials:
tile
thin set
sanded grout (unless you are using glass tile)

Tools:
tile saw
notched trowel
rubber float
sponge
level (uneven lines of tile are not good)

I bought most of the tiles at a tag sale at a local kitchen shop. Tile shops have lots of left overs, many of which are in similar color ranges. Tiling is like making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Believe me you can do this. The tools are few and inexpensive. I bought a tile saw at Home Depot which you can rent, but the $125 price tag was reasonable and probably cheaper than renting as it took me 11 days to do this rather large shower. These tiles come on 1 foot by 2 foot mesh, but ever the overachiever, I cut them off the mesh and placed them one at a time for this detailed pattern.

The saw wasn't nearly as scary as I imagined. It cuts hard material like tile, but not soft skin so, although I wouldn't press my luck, it was safer than a wood saw. I cut the 2" x 2" tiles into 1" x 1" for the letters and surrounding boarder.

One work of caution, wear rubber gloves when grouting as grout contains lye and I burned off my fingerprints on another tile project a few years ago. Ouch!

Home depot gives lessons, if you haven't seen enough on HGTV. There are lots of good books on the subject too.
