In order to make the mirror and lighting situation look more composed and complete, I framed out the mirror and refinished the light fixture
We also installed some simple numbered towel hooks that ended up being worth their weight in gold.
The meat of the project of course, was re-tiling the shower and refinishing the old built-in. You can read all about those projects here:
These are really the crowning glories in my opinion. The modern look of subway tile. The classic feel of black trim. Come-on!
Here's some side by side before and afters for ya!
