White Subway Tile Shower {Our Master Shower is Finished!}


Guess where I am flying off to today?

Detroit, Michigan!

I have never been there before in my life until this year, and now I can say that I have been there TWICE in 3 months!  Crazy, I tell ya.

I went in July with GMC and Onstar, and now I am headed back there today to work with Home Depot and their Celebration of Service program.

I cannot wait to be a part of this wonderful program.  We ALL owe so much to our Veterans, and I am honored to give just a little bit of my service back to them.  What a blessing!

So please say a prayer for me for safe travels.  I will only be gone one day, so it is a super quick trip.

Watch for updates on my facebook page and twitter stream.

Before I head out, I wanted to show you our finished master bathroom shower.

We haven’t used it yet because I still have to hang the white fabric shower liner, but I will “christen” it when I get back from my trip.

We chose to use white subway tile in our shower.  It is inexpensive and classic.

Cy finished the trim work to match the trim work around our windows and doorways.  Don’t the faux wood beams from AZ Faux Beams look awesome?!

Our shower faucet is by Bella Foret.

I love the little cross handle faucet!  Definitely adds that old house character that I love.

Our first faucet had a faulty valve, so Cy contacted Bella Foret, and they sent us a new one.  Whew!

We used grey grout on the walls and floor.  That is Carrera marble on the floor of the shower.

We went back and forth on whether to tile the foot step into the shower, but we decided on a oak wood foot step to match the floor.  It really does look beautiful, although I think it looks a little too much in these pictures.  I think it looks better in person.

I am so thrilled to finally have a working shower.  Now all I have to do is get the chandelier and some sconces for the vanity, and the bathroom will officially be finished.  (Well, except for a little décor of course.)


BTW, here is the chandelier that you loved most when I asked you last week.  Hands down, #2 won.


Do you think it is my favorite? 

You’ll have to wait and see! Winking smile


  1. It’s looking beautiful! Are you going to be all (mostly) done by November or December? I’d love to see how you decorate everything for the holidays!

  2. It looks beautiful Traci!! Y’all have done an amazing job on this space!! I really like the oak wood foot step as well! I think it was a great choice! Can’t wait to see the light fixture you chose!!

    Safe travels today!! Praying for you!!

  3. Your bathroom looks amazing, of course

    I feel like I can really relate to you because I have four crazy boys of my own and I love to decorate my house…but I’m not nearly as crafty as you and Cy!

    Safe Travels!

  4. So impressed with all your hard work! Great tile & marble choices. Just wondering: how will you keep the Oak Wood foot step from getting wet and possibly warping/rotting? It is really beautiful and I have never seen wood used in a bathroom shower!!

  5. I would love to have a bathroom like yours. I love everything… My bathroom off the Master Bedroom is so small that if you turned around you would hit the wall. No kidding.

    We will pray that you have a safe trip. You are doing all of us proud. Thanks for sharing.

  6. That is a BEAUTIFUL bathroom right out of my dreams! I love all your choices but especially the beams, oak step oh, and the tile and the brick…and can’t wait to see your chandelier choice.

    By the way, you’ve done a beautiful job with all the renovations and finishes.

    Praying for a blessed and safe trip!

  7. Now your all set all you have to do is click on “File” and then “Run CD-ROM” or “Run ISO”.

    system on the market by a wide margin. Basically, it’s a copycat device that can run other systems.
