Cedar shingles

I have a few bundles of cedar shakes. They were replacements for my exterior siding. I am considering using them as the walls to my shower. Stained and sealed. Anyone try this? Anyone see a reason not to try it?

Isn't cedar highly resistant to rot? U wouldn't need to seal or stain em.

That finish in the shower may prove troublesome to keep clean.

cedar shingles would be harder to clean than the fiberglass panels one normally uses for shower sides...

Those are some very valid points... I got rid of them because they were hard to keep clean on the outside! Whew. Good thing someone thinks of these things.

They still look cool on accent wall. I saw guy use on side of bunk, nice look, not sure if snaggy as you pass. Master bedroom?

I would have taken them, they are fantastic for showers. They are very hard to rot, almost waterproof, and they smell amazing. Also keeps out the mosquitos.
