Cool Idea: Galvanized Steel Instead of Shower Tile

Country Living has an inspiring article about how one of its contributing editors (also a carpenter) transformed his dated, minuscule bathroom into a seriously glamorous one for only $1,000. The photos definitely wowed me, but I have a soft spot for clean, white rooms, especially those with feminine accents. What really impressed me was his innovative use of sheets of corrugated, galvanized metal as a tub surround instead of traditional shower tile. The sheets totaled only $21, and the only other supplies he needed to install it were an enamel finish, roofing screws, and caulk, for about $10.
The juxtaposition of the frilly, ruffled shower curtain and crystal chandelier with the galvanized sheets and bucket keeps it all from looking too industrial, and fittingly, gives it a country vibe.

Yes if you go on the County Living sight it lists the clear sealant that was used. But as for how long it will last can't say, I imagine though it would be a good idea to re-seal it every so often like an outdoor deck.

Won't this rust? I mean, even galvanized will rust when exposed to water, right? Is it sealed somehow?
