Hi Valerie,

I don't mean to sound hoity-toity, but tiling a shower is a bit complex for the do-it-yourselfer, especially a first-timer. However, everyone doesn't agree with me, including Michael Byrne, who is the author of Setting Tile (Taunton Press). Great book, even if I don't agree with him. I've seen it at Home Depot, and I have a link to it on my site (alongside my own book, which won't help you in this case).

Lot's of luck,
