Confessions, Of The Bathroom Kind!

I have a confession to make, when I posted our Guest Bathroom Reveal way back here, we weren't completely finished.  Sitting behind that white waffled shower curtain was a partially finished shower.

You see, we didn't mean for it to take this long to complete.  We tore the original shower out, installed the new bathtub and then started tiling with these fabulous extra large subway tiles.  Then we hit a brick wall with the shower plumbing.  Well by we, I mean Chris.  Sorry to throw you under the bus, babe.

What we thought would be a rather simple DIY turned into a rather difficult problem.  A problem we let sit for months before finally getting the courage up to bust out the tiling Chris had already done.  

Then, a few more months toiled by as we let it sit before actually fixing the plumbing issue and re-tiling it.

But our problems didn't stop there.  At this point, it had been over a year since we purchased all of our plumbing supplies and we couldn't find what color grout we had originally used.  That led us on a guessing game, and you guessed right, we were wrong.  So out had to come that grout and we had to buy the other color which then ended up being correct.

A few more months drug by and thanks to my step-dad for coming by and helping Chris install the drain under the house. We officially have a working shower for the kids and guests!
