Tub Surround: Grouting & Finish.

Well... not the complete finished product...

Grout is evil. I really don't think that I need to elaborate much on that... Before this project, I liked to grout (I know, that's weird). But, this project had too many grout lines and it was a huge pain and took way longer than I thought. I got blisters and ended up getting a weird pinched nerve in my hand/wrist that hurt for almost a week.

I still feel like I'm cleaning up after all of this...

Don't criticize my photos too much... These were sort of still in progress, so everything isn't as clean as it should be or is now. 

I can't even begin to tell you how glad I am that this is done. The bathroom looks 8 million times better... Except now that bathtub looks extra horrible from all the love it's had over the years. I'm not sure how long it will be before that gets painted/refinished because I just happened to decide on something slightly/possibly life changing that will cost a good chunk of money at the moment, so we may need to wait a couple years (ish, I hope not). Ok, maybe until extra pay check month (when you get paid every other week, two months a year you end up with 3 pay checks!) or Bill's yearly bonus or tax refund.... we'll see.

Hopefully I will soon have everything completely finished for some extreme when we bought the house and now photos. Crazy difference... I still have some things to finish up and do final photos (see above photo with paint that needs to be touched up above the tiles.
