Shower Floor Complete!

I have finished my shower floor, what do you think?

It almost looks brand new!  Very worth the effort.  This is not a difficult job, just tedious.  It requires you to plan to be out of your shower a week to do each stage correctly.

1- Acid wash floors (or use a grout de-hazer)
2- Remove caulk
3- Stain the grout.  I found with small tile it helped to use small, damp squares of an old tee-shirt to wipe the stain off the tile because anything bigger dragged spreading more stain or removed it from the grout.
4- Apply new caulk.  I bought this tool and it worked like a charm!
5- Seal grout as many times as necessary so I won't have to do this again any time soon!
