Basement Bathroom - mostly done

The guest bedroom in our basement was big, way bigger than we needed for a guest bedroom.  One thing the basement didn't have was a bathroom...so we came up with a plan to add a bathroom in the infamous "purple room".  The removed drywall is where the shower will go...
 ...still leaving plenty of room in the bedroom.
 Stubbing in a bathroom is a little more than I wanted to tackle, so I framed up the walls and then we hired a plumber to come in and break up the floor...
 ...and stub in a toilet, vanity and shower.  The boys were pretty amazed that when you break up the floor there is dirt under there!
 Starting to put the pieces back together, water lines are run and shower base is in!
 Time to add some drywall and tile!
 We went with this pinwheel mosaic tile for the floor that we found at Lowes, it gave a fun pattern and a splash of color
 For the shower, I used a classic white subway tile.  Easy to use and affordable!
 I didn't take pictures of putting up drywall, but the walls are up and textured and the tile is going up.
 About 500 subway tiles later...
 we are almost done
 We went with white grout in the shower, to me it gives a clean look.
 I'm not done with the drywall and trim in the hallway, but here is a look at the floor tile, we used dark grout for the floor
We found a shower door at Home Depot that is a slider with dark bronze hardware to tie in the mirror and dark floor grout.  Added some shelves for storage...
 I found this old school house door at our local Re-Store, I frosted the glass and added "BATH" vinyl letters
 The nearly finished bathroom...
 I still need to add trim, a transom above the door and finish the drywall in the hallway, but we now have a functioning bathroom in the basement!
