The Results...

Of our Home Depot trip:

8 cases of tile

4 bags of mortar

1 roll of shower pan liner

1 shower drain

and a partridge in a pear tree.
The plain tile is for the shower walls and the bathroom floor. The mosaic type tile is for the floor of the shower. I am taking all of the icky green tile off of the walls, so we will have to put up new drywall, but we'll talk about that next time. Then I am going to do light brown walls with dark brown texture (never done that before, so we will see how that turns out).

This is going to be so much fun. We actually did not get everything we need, because Daddy was afraid my car would be overloaded and we would not make it home, but we have enough to start the project. I am going to tear up the bathroom floor and remove the vanity right now.


Never give up said...

Remember, don't put the tile up over just the drywall. It won't work. By Hardyboard from Lowe's or the Depot and put it up first. If the floor is concrete, you can put the tile straight down on that. If it's wood, you've got to put Hardyboard down also. Good luck!

Nice tile choices. For your next project you should go to They have a much larger selection than the Depot.
