Who wouldn’t love a customized shower? Stone and tile showers are amazingly beautiful, but having one custom made can come with a pretty hefty price tag. Did you know that it can actually be pretty simple to create a custom shower look on your own? Today’s “your pick” sent in from Mark, shows us just how inexpensive and simple it can be to create your own custom pebble stone shower. Mark and his wife used pebble stones (purchased at the Dollar Store for a total of $53!) to transform a basic white shower stall into a custom stone oasis! Here’s how they did it…
The Pebble Stone Shower DIY
Pebble Stones (Mark purchased 53 2 lb. bags from the Dollar Store)
Lots and lots of patience…
Mark and his wife started out with these pebble stones from the Dollar Store
Use tile adhesive to carefully glue down each stone to the shower wall. This process requires a lots of patience. Mark explained that his wife would come home from work and do a 2″ x 36″ section each night! Once the stones are glued down and dry, apply a layer of grout on top. Skim off excess grout and apply additional layers as needed. Finally, apply a stone sealer to help keep out moisture.
Mark and his wife cut tiles to size and used them for the shower inserts. You would apply these the same way you applied the pebble stones.
Mark’s pebble stone shower DIY came out amazing! At a cost of only $53 and A LOT of patience, I’d say this transformation was well worth it!
