I had an old tub/shower and the walls were tiled, with plastic tiles. There was one outside corner, and it had a special tile that went around that corner, and overlapped the other tiles by one inch (each side was one inch, and then a 90*) The tiles were getting loose, the grout was extremley thin, the grout was cracked, and I had water leaking to the downstairs.
Now, I have saved the old tub to reuse, and I have gotten a tub surround from home depot. I have torn out the old tiles, the plaster and such down to the 2x4's. Basically, I have 2x4's and a tub. I installed the new faucte for the tub this afternoon, and I have greenboard on the one wall, and more waiting for the other 2 walls. I am only redoing the actual tub area, the rest of the bathroom is good shape, and I am not going to mess with it.
My problem is this - how do I transition from the drywall that I will install to the existing tile? I did a quick search and didn't come up with a tile that did the same job as the ones I had. Maybe I did not know what to look for, but the 'bullnose' tile was the only one I could find for corners? I'd be interested in something like a cornerbead for tile?
