Tips for grouting tiles, painting walls
Work from top to bottom. Start by painting the ceiling to prevent any paint spatter from marring a just-painted wall. Roll the paint to within a couple of inches of where wall and ceiling intersect, then cut in with a brush for the corner. Work your way around the ceiling in this manner. Next, paint the walls using the same method.
Finally, paint the window trim, door trim and baseboards. Don't forget to use a drop cloth and painter's tape and paper to keep drips at bay.
If you can afford it, consider updating the shower curtain or shower door with a new model. Other nice touches if your budget allows are new mirrors, light fixtures, towel bars and faucet.
