Remember a couple of months back when I broke the faucet in my tub so the plumber had to tear apart Mom's bathroom wall to fix it? Yeah, well, Mom decided that since I already had to patch the drywall, I should paint the walls. And while I was making the walls, I should re-grout the tile walls in her shower. And since I had to mix grout anyway, I should replace the tile floor. And since I was going to have to pull up the toilet to replace the floor, I should replace the toilet. And that's how we got here:
The only hitch was -- surprise, surprise -- the bathtub faucet. I removed it to clean it and get at the tile behind it. However, when I put it back together... drip, drip, drip. I really should have known better. Fortunately this repair was as easy as replacing two small gaskets and applying some elbow grease. Which is good, as I had already repainted the walls.
Overall, I'm happy with the work. The shower tiles still look an uneven mess, but I couldn't correct that without re-tiling the shower entirely. There's only so much that one man can do in two weeks. I do have to get my 10 hours of sleep a night, you know.
