It's PINK.

Last night, Mark and I met with our friend Dave, who will be doing all of the work for our master bathroom. Just to give you an idea of what he's working with, here's a before shot of our shower.

Yep! That's a pink shower! The floor is currently covered in sticky linoleum tiles that we had to put down in order to get approved for the loan. Prior to that, it was bare.

The bathroom is pretty small, about 25-30 sq ft, not including the shower. There are some built in cabinets to the right of the shower that are pretty sorry looking, but salvageable according to Dave.

So what do we have planned, you ask? Well, we thought we'd keep it pretty simple and classic. We've chosen a 2x4 neutral tile for the shower and a matching 12x12 for the floor. The tile will carry all the way to the ceiling in the shower. We've decided to repipe the shower head to come down straight from the ceiling. The vanity will be a dark espresso and all fixtures will be a brushed silver.
As for paint, we found all (most) of our colors last night!!! The bathroom will be painted in Glidden's Cafe Latte -neutral and taupe-ish.
Sewer re-pipe to be completed on Friday, garage install on Friday, HVAC (asbestos, re-ducting, a/c and heat install) to start next week. Phew!

I don't know what you're talking about, I think a pink shower is quite nice!!

...although your new shower sounds better. Good luck!
