Lucky Gayle!! That's a project I'd like to tackle. We rent this place, but we've already replaced part of the wallboard in the shower with cement board (who in their right might wouldn't put cement board where it's gonna be wet??) In fact, I think you've inspired me and Home Depot may be on my list of places to hit tomorrow!
Last thing I bought this weekend so far was a huge bag of Marie Callendar's cornbread mix from Sams (gotta love Sams - had lunch there - 2 shrimp samples, a new Acai juice sample - pistachio nut sample - varied diet today LOL)
Life is just a chance to grow a soul.
