So after our horrid experience scraping cement from between the many, MANY subway tiles in our bathroom, we’ve finally rounded a corner and are grateful to see that all the hard work was worth it. In many ways, it feels like we’re starting the year with a new shower.
So you can see the difference, I’ve captured a few ‘halfway there’ shots. While there are a few bits we need to go back over because we didn’t scour out enough of the old grout, we’re really happy with the overall result. It’s not a job I want to repeat anytime soon, but it has been worth it.
Next we’re going to paint the yellowed rubber edging along the tub a bright white, and then go back and smooth out some of my botched plastering. Then we will be well and truly finished until we decide to gut the room and start over.
Any of those jobs that you’ve hated doing, but then loved the final result?
