Zalina has tackled a tough DIY and is looking for some advice: I am remodeling my bathroom by myself. I tiled the walls surrounding the bathtub. It was my first time tiling and it definitely turned out second rate. I miscalculated the measurements and ended up with space from the top medal edge so I created a border of broken tiles to fill in the space. My question what should I do around the faucet handles?

Should I paint? I tried broken tiles but it was hard to grout around the faucet handles and I removed them. I am a complete novice and I don't have the sophisticated tools to cut tiles. Thanks for any advice.

Please help Zalina out with some tips, suggestions and advice to help her finish off the job....
