Bathroom Update with Pictures!

I finished the grouting today and attached all the shower heads. I also hooked up the toilet so now I can pee properly and not have to look at the cesspit of a bowl on the third floor! I just have to apply grout sealer and wait until we have a couple of grand to spare on glass for the shower enclosure. Here are two pictures. You can click on them for a better image. I left the 4' long level in place to give an idea of scale.

What is left to do? Well, I am going to make a polished concrete sink counter to sit on an 1880s set of drawers. I am also going to put a polished concrete surround and mantle to the fireplace. One more pass with the top coat, a lined chimney and this room will be ready to paint! Maybe by September.....
Now I have to get back to stripping paint in the master bedroom

"Scrape, scrape, scrape, scrape,
Sand, sand, sand, sand........"

Wow! You could get lost in that thing. You did a beautiful job. I love how the tile on the floor is set at an angle to the wall tile, it makes it so much more visualy interesting.
