DIY Bath Wall Tile

When we first bought our house, I knew immediately I wanted to change out the tile in the restroom. However, we were planning to hold it off for as long as possible since it wasn't a necessity. Shortly, after moving in we noticed a certain spot on the carpet in our bedroom would get wet after the shower was used.

We initially thought there was something wrong with the plumbing but that wasn't the problem. The grout was so worn out from the bath wall tile that the water was leaking through the wall into our bedroom. Therefore, we needed to replace the wall tile.

We started off with this as a recap.

My brother-in-law and husband replaced the drywall with backer board and also added insulation on the window wall. They than both started adding the new tile which I am very pleased with. However, we never got finished with it and sadly it has been sitting that way for over a year. We did apply clear caulking which I think was a mistake and never touched up the paint.

Sorry about the quality and darkness of these pictures.
There are two tiles that I do want to replace on the shower wall whenever we get around to matching the floor tile. One sticks out and the other wasn't cut properly for the facet to fit on the correct way.

After replacing the floor tile, I would like to
  • Add white wainscoting half way up the wall
  • Replace baseboards
  • Paint the upper half a light blue color
  • Replace the current mirror with a larger one
  • Spray paint the light fixture
  • Replace faucet fixtures
  • Remove popcorn ceiling
  • Remove cabinet above the toilet and use for our laundry nook
  • Install floating shelves above the toilet
  • Paint the cabinet with another white color and add hardware
  • Replace both doors
I am hoping to have the restroom completed before the end of the year. All the projects will be DIY except replacing the floor tile and baseboards. Once that is complete, I know everything else will be complete quickly.

How long have you left a DIY project unfinished? Do you plan on remodeling your restroom?
