Bathroom BEFORE and AFTER (1 year later)

So, I realized I never posted the pics of the completely finished bathroom. All I can say is Rick and I had a VERY busy year. Better late than never. Here is what the bathroom looked like when I moved in to Rick's Bachelor Pad. Let me warn you these pics could offend some.
Are you scared yet?
Notice the beautiful pink tile, EVERYWHERE!
You can uncover your eyes now. After a month of VERY hard work by my very talented, hard working, strong, amazingly handsome, husband (mostly by himself, with a little help here and there), this is the finished bathroom!
My also talented, beautiful mother made the shower curtain for us. I searched high and low for a ceiling length shower curtain, with no luck. This was not only hard because of the length, but because Rick allows no "girly" patterns or textures in our house. Which means no floral, damask, whimsical, polka dots, pin tucks, pleats, it pretty much means only stripes or solids (Auburn patterns are also allowed). I looked into just buying fabric and having her make one, but that would have cost $150 and I couldn't find the perfect fabric either. SO, I found a Pottery Barn duvet on ebay ($60) I thought was perfect, mailed it to my mom, and she made EXACTLY what I was looking for and still not so "girly".
Rick did all the tile work in the shower and the floor.
I did contribute a little with my painting skills. I think the bathroom turned out absolutely PERFECT!!!! I LOVE THIS ROOM!!! I am so proud of the hard work Rick put into this, all while I complained about having to go to a friends house to shower for 23 days in the middle of winter. This room makes me happy and was well worth it! What do you guys think about my handy dandy husband?

Wow! That is so nice and classy. I have to ask what you did about the tile though. We have been looking at some houses that have that tile and I am at a loss. Did you bead-board right over top of it or tear it out? Really amazing job. You are lucky to have such a handy husband.
