I spent the past 3 days tiling the kitchen counters. It was a mixture of proudness, frustration and ah-ha moments. I am very proud of my accomplishment, but I didn't believe it would turn out as nice as it did while I was in the process. I was using a basic tile cutter and there is a fine line between not enough water and too much water. I got sparks with too little water and with too much water, I got sprayed with a mixture of water and tile shards. It gave new meaning to the word 'microdermabrasion.'
Ah-ha, I reap the rewards of my labor....I have a new tiled counter top that is very pretty and I can't believe that I actually did it! I made mistakes and I will be even better at tile on my next project.
|Don't you just love my tupper-ware mortar bucket! It was difficult lining up the diamonds and determining where to start the pattern.|
|I am not showing the "Full Reveal" but you can see a glimpse of the countertops!|
|I want knobs to match the green, I have a few of the left over glass tiles and some old wooden knobs that came off the original cabinets, hmmmm. What can we do with this?|
|I cut them in half to form a narrow base and will paint them white, and glue the tiles on top.|
|L@@k! new green glass knobs!|
