Bathroom Remodel - Toilet!

No picture but the toilet is in! Before we could install it we had to get the wainscoting primed and painted and all seams sealed up. All that is done and the toilet is working perfectly. We bought a dual flush one. If you are unsure what that is, the flush mechanism lets more or less water out of the tank depending on the 'waste' you are flushing. I really wanted this for the guest bath since I work from home and thus use the bathroom more than someone who isn't at home all day (plus I drink a lot of water).

We also got the shower all sealed up and we got to use it for the first time this morning. Everything worked great. Though I had a hard time not noticing flaws in my tile job. It's not bad, just one the drawbacks of doing work yourself, thus knowing where issues exist, and being a perfectionist.

I had a bit of a problem installing the shower rod. It's a fixed rod instead of one of those spring loaded ones. The problem was that it came with drywall anchors, cheap ones at that. They didn't work on the tile, so I had to run to ACE hardware and buy some anchors that'd work. They did and while I wouldn't try to do chin-ups on it, it's good and secure.

Things are starting to get there now. We still need to texture and paint the ceiling. We also need to do some more painting in general in the room. Then it's just down to the vanity. We have a plan for it now.
