Yeah, our shower...I swore I would never bathe my children in it before we moved into this house. Numero Uno Priority. (Funny thing - two weeks after moving in, we found out we were expecting Elijah. Three children later and still the same nasty tub and surround). We are assuming that the tiles behind the surround were broken or grout was coming out therefore making it necessary to fix it. And this was an interesting fix. The surround was glued over top of the tiles and has never been adhered well since we bought the house.
The best part of this room, though, is the robin's egg blue tiles (see shower picture for best color). Don't get me wrong...I love blue, but this is too much and too permanent. The only thing I'll regret is that this bathroom reminds me of a car I owned while in college. It was a 1978 Mercury Zephyr painted robin's egg blue complete with 8 track player. Blue Gill. That's what we called her. She had "gills" on each side above the front tires and she was lovely. My parents bought her for $600 with only 60,000 original miles. Because of Blue Gill I learned how to drive stick shift. It was a sad day when we sold her and I gave my three bags of 8 tracks back to the Goodwill. Tom Jones, Karen Carpenter, Kenny Rodgers, Chicago...memories!
