As I mentioned in this babymoon post a few weeks ago, the soap dish tile in our bathtub fell out the other day and smashed into about 40 pieces when it hit the floor. Ugh! We were disappointed, and a little dumbfounded, to say the least, but we weren't necessarily surprised. The tile work was original to the house, so we are talking about almost 50 years of wear and tear on that grout and caulking (which hopefully explains the amount of dirt and grim that you will witness in the following photo.....I SWEAR that I've tried to clean it)!!
|Here's B holding the tile in place. I think he had envisioned us taking turns|
holding the soap dish in place while it set a little.....but I preferred to document
the process while he SUFFERED!! Hehe

As much as we try to scrub it, it just doesn't get any cleaner.
And now that we know that some of the tiles can just spontaneously fall off,
I'm going to scrub a little softer so as to not encourage anymore from jumping ship.....
Oh, and you can totally see the outline of the chip in this close-up shot.
Does it bother me? Yes, but do I care enough to re-do the entire project.....HELL NO!!
|From far away, the grout lines don't look as bad...but you now know the truth!! EEK! |
