Airstream Shower Wall…

By February 22, 2015Airstream, Interior

I just realized that I never actually finished this post I started ages ago (At least I don’t think I did! Lol!) So for those of you curious about what I ever decided to do for my shower wall…here is the answer. I love the look of glass tiles, but a 31′ with a rear bath does not need the added weight. I thought about substituting smart tiles which are basically similar to a wall paper but provide the look of tiles. I ordered samples of those, but couldn’t ever make up my mind on which style I liked best. (By the way, the samples looked great. I would still consider them as an option in RV decorating projects.) The Smart Tiles are not cheap so I looked at some other options too. After much debate, I finally decided on using faux antique ceiling tiles found at Home Depot back in the Kitchen cabinetry section. They are generally for use as a kitchen back-splash, but they are working great on the wall of my shower.

First note: Do not use this glue! I used it on the last of the tiles to go up. Not very long after, I had to re-glue that panel with the good stuff. None of the other panels have had any issues. I thought it would be easier than the glue below since it didn’t need a caulking gun. Easier is not the correct option here. I’m only sharing it as a warning that it does not work for this particular job.

Use this glue or one one on the same level as it. This one works great and has held the tiles to the wall for over a year now with no problem.

This shot is of the re-glue, and yes I was lazy and did not bother to remove all of the cheap glue. So far it hasn’t shown to be a problem. All tiles are still firmly attached to the wall.

Finished wall! It has held up well and looks great without adding any weight to the rear of the TinCan. I’m very happy with it!

Watch out! It’s a crazy lady with a caulking gun loaded with glue!
