Corrugated metal in the bathroom


Are you all sick of seeing these picture yet?  Sorry.   


It seems like we're settling into a groove of one, maybe one and a half projects, somewhat finished per weekend.  Last weekend it was hanging this light.

(Thank you Reggie!)

Here's what our shower looks like right now.  I'm hoping that this is the project that gets somewhat finished this weekend.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Budget wise, this has been our slimmest week yet, but things should start to level out for us pretty soon and spring is right around the corner (I hope!) so I can start opening up some paint cans.  I have too many brains that are still developing around here to do any painting until I can open up the windows.

  1. Forgot to mentio that the top two pictures are from Country Living.

  2. I love the picture of the bathroom, it's great! can't wait to see yours when it is finished!

    I hope everything is going well in your new town! My husband and I recently found a church that we are really interested and excited about! Also I have been listening to these great sermons by Mark Driscoll. I don't know if you've heard of him but if not you should check this out:

    Very encouraging and verrry challenging!

  3. I love the look. Is the corrugated metal hard to work with? (Did you take a post down or am I dreaming about your blog?!)

  4. Ha! You must be dreaming Deborah! Unless I have a ghost messing with my blog.

    So far it's not been hard to work with, but Jeff wants to take it all down and put metal flashing in the corners then put it back up. Then he has to figure out how he's going to work around the shower fixtures. Easy for me to say it hasn't been hard, huh?

  5. I can't wait to see it finished. My bathroom has only been under construction for a year now. : /

  6. Love the way this bathroom looks. So now a few years later, how is the metal holding up?

    1. Yes, it's been about five years and it's still holding up...not quite as shiny, but still it looks good and works really well. :)

    2. Great! Husband was wondering what you did around the shower base to keep it water tight. thanks for taking time to answer. Saw you were in SW Missouri. We live in NW Arkansas but are remodeling a lake house in Shell Knob, MO

    3. Oh my goodness, Shell Knob is a small town but that happens to be where my grandparents lived! I spent loads of time there growing up and miss it, and especially them, terribly. Those are such happy memories for me! I hope you and your husband enjoy your remodel and enjoy the lake for me too! :)

    4. Oh yeah, I was so excited about where your lake house is that I almost forgot to answer your question...The corrugated metal sits on top of z channel which sits on top of pvc trim that's been screwed to the wall and caulked.

    5. Wow! Small world! We have been vacationing in Shell Knob for many years. Love that area. Thanks for the shower advice.

  7. I like your pictures here and the material choices you picked out for your bathroom. I recently bought a tiny 100 plus old farmhouse in NC and the house has original pine plank floors, except for the bathroom. The original outhouse is still standing across the road. LOL. But the add on bathroom that was done here years ago, has nasty tile flooring and I can't wait to rip them out. I want to simplify and so am considering the corrugated metal behind my claw foot tub for ease of keeping it clean vs tile and grout. Thanks for the inspiration here on your blog.

    1. What an exciting undertaking...I just love old houses! Corrugated metal would look beautiful behind a claw foot tub. :)
