Master Bathroom Update: The Shower is Done!

I know I haven't posted a bathroom update lately. Honestly, I haven't been working on the bathroom lately.  Other things have been on my mind.  Getting ready for Christmas, and preparing for my 6 (going on 7) year old's birthday party. 

Originally I was going to post about her party this week.  It was a winter theme with a hot chocolate bar and christmas cookie decorating, but in light of the tragic events in Connecticut, I just didn't have it in me to write about it right now.  My heart goes out to all those families who won't be celebrating another birthday with their 6 year olds.  Since my daughter is exactly the age of the school children victims it is hard not to put myself in the shoes of those parents.  There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said before, or that could sum up the tragedy of the situation, so I will leave that other more eloquent people. 

Instead I will share one quick update on the bathroom that is pretty exciting for me.  The frameless door finally went in and now the shower is complete!

I am absolutely delighted! Now to just keep plugging along on the rest of the room. 

Budget for this part of the remodel: $1331.30
Sanded grout: $27.10
Sanded caulk: $13.76
Credit** for extra tile +$119.56
Glass door plus install: $1410.00
Renovation total to date: $2506.45

**I originally purchased excess tile and included in the budget. I was able to return the extra tile at Lowe's for a credit, which is why I didn't purchase the tile directly from the tile store.

  6. My son's shower is very similar to yours. He got a price on the glass for the shower and shower door and it was $2,300.00. Could you tell me where you got yours for half that amount?
