Quick and Easy DIY Shower Niche Installation Steps, Tips, and Video for homeowners that are comfortable doing DIY remodeling.
DIY Shower Niche Install Time
Hi again! If you’re keeping up with our Master Bathroom Remodel, you probably saw my last post with the before photos and design plan for our new bathroom.
This time, I have the demo photos, plumbing and counter top updates, and the quick and easy DIY Shower Niche Installation Video.
The contractors are gone now. They were able to get a lot of work done in about 10 days. Before they hung the Hardie Board for the shower, I got in there and framed in a new, bigger shower niche. And, this is an easy DIY, guys. Check out the video below to see just how easy it is.
Be sure to stop back soon, I’ll be sharing the DIY Plank Ceiling I’m installing in the bath, the tiling I’m working on now, and more big changes coming to the bathroom! And, check out how I built our garbage cans into our vanity cabinet doors to keep them out of site and away from little hands, or paws. 🙂
