DIY Network: Dude, Floor.

Yeah, I said Dude. And dude, this week’s post on DIY Network more than just about the (amazing beyond words) floor: the bathroom is starting to feel d-o-n-e, except that there’s still no vanity or toilet, but those are tiny things, right? There’s a lot to be said about being able to step out of a shower onto a finished floor instead of out of your bathtub onto plywood. I probably can’t say that it’s the last shower and bathroom floor overhaul I’ll do in my lifetime (I’m kind of an addict, like Nicole Curtis‘s brunette sister), but finishing my first bathroom floor feels really, really good.

On Day 11 of the bathroom renovation, we checked a whole list of things off our list. The shower is totally d-o-n-e, the floor too, and I even painted (and repainted). It was a whirlwind day, and I hope I captured all of the nitty gritty for The Pegboard. If not, ask questions. And if you want me to get more specific on any steps of the process, I can do that in future posts too.

What's that I see? Floor tiles and grout? Oh, happy day.

Go ahead, see (almost) a bazillion photos in this week’s update for DIY Network right here.

If you missed the beginning of this bathroom renovation series, catch up for yourself by perusing these posts:

  1. A little video introduction and tour!
  2. An overview of the materials I’ve been purchasing! Because what DIY-crazed girl wouldn’t love tile shopping?
  3. And getting down and dirty with demolition!
  4. Training a beginner to repair a drain pipe and install a bathtub!
  5. Building custom shower shelving, and learning how to install HardiBacker.
  6. And learning more than I ever thought I’d know about shower valves and PEX.
  7. Four days of tiling. No exaggeration.
  8. And then we grouted our little hearts out.
  9. Leaned on and learned about underlayment.
