The main floor bathroom shower was leaking into the basement, the result of my teenager being careless about ensuring that the curtain liner remained inside the tub, combined with a need for new grout in a few seams between floor tiles and cracked sealant between the tub and the door. My solution: replace the shower curtain with glass shower doors. And, as soon as we can, fix the grout and caulk.
What we really need is a complete bathroom remodel. Most fixtures are original to the 1950s house, the 1950s tile is cracked. Also, it’s lavender and pink. And the window in the shower is a major problem, with peeling paint and a mildewy shutter.
But we can’t afford a complete remodel right now. So we’re looking at some simpler fixes. The first one was completed over the weekend: We have a new shower door! It makes the room look larger, and I really hope it will help keep the water in the tub. Next up is some spot re-grouting and caulk work. That will probably happen this week.
After that, I have plans for that weird window.
