About a month and a half later I have completed tiling and grouting the walls. I have just cleaned the floor in preparation for putting down the Durock, to be followed by Hydro-Barrier.
I will never use Scotch 3M painters tape anymore as you can see earlier I had painted the wall before tiling. Knowing I would have some grout go off the tile I taped it off. When I removed the tape so did my paint.
This morning I had to cut in around the tile which will leave brush marks when I had a nice rolled finish oh well.
Once I have the floor in place I will go back and place the base cove tile.
