OH NO, A Problem

As you can see, the shower has a paint, bubbling, pealing issue.  A friend suggested a funky tile configuration using broken ceramics.  Plus she had some left over grout and sealer she said I could have.  HURRAY, FREE SUPPLIES, all I needed was the adhesive.  So today I went to Home Depot to pick up some stuff to help me begin the project.

I begin to peel the paint away and I notice the wall is damp.  The more I scraped the damper it felt.   However,  I continue on, it's the shower and maybe it should feel that way.

Anyway, this scraping is taking longer than I expected.  Not wanting to disturb my neighbor, I let them know what I was doing in the bathroom (we share a wall).  What a stroke of luck, he explained he had the same problem and had repaired that wall many times.  I should not begin my project until they [Maintenance] repairs the leak. 

I'm calling Monday.

The good thing is that the leak will be fixed before you begin your project. Otherwise, that would have been even worse. Good luck!

Hiya =) We also have a issue with our bathroom, although on the floor.
It has started to leak down to our living room but our insurance will fix the leak but not the "look" of it so that is something we have to cough up from our own pockets. =) I wish you luck with your planing and hope you can manage it. =) Have a good day. =)

Thanks Jess and Libby, I think there was some work done on the source of the leak, which I believe is the apartment upstairs.
Thanks for the well wishes and good luck to you Jess.
