I was on Pinterest!!!! yep, spend a lot of time there. It has a lot of great inspiration.
I showed you my big double wide shower in our Master Bath last week. I used sheer curtains to cover it up instead of just having the glass doors exposed. If you missed this post you can see it here.
I found another quick and inexpensive fix to that same shower that gave it a more spa like feel.
It is adding cedar planks and making a shower floor out of them.
Cedar is the best and cheapest wood you can use to do this project. Cedar is treated and will hold up to water so it is a win win for a shower floor.
Here we go:
|Dull and boring hard to clean typical shower floor.|
|So we went to Home Depot and got some pretty inexpensive cedar 1 by 2 planks. The planks were 8 foot pieces for about $2 a plank. Our double shower floor took about 14 planks to make the base.|
|Terry measured the shower floor and cut the planks to fit. The four planks on the end in the picture to the right he rounded the edges to match the curves in the shower floor corners.|
|Terry then drilled holes to fit the pieces together to make the base.|
|He used stainless steel deck screws so they would not rust and would hold up to the water in the shower.|
|He then fitted the base outline pieces together to make a perfect match for the new plank floor. This sits 2 inches above the drain underneath to allow for good drainage.|
|The next step was to attach all the planks to complete the cedar plank floor.|
|We stained the floor with a semi translucent outdoor deck stain. Here is the inexpensive trick to saving money on the stain. I got a $3 sample can of the color I liked it was plenty enough stain to do all the planks.|
