Time Sure Flies

Wow, I blink and suddenly two months have passed. Crazy! Well, I’ve mostly been distracted with trying to remodel out house. Although, we haven’t started construction of our master bath. We’ve been doing a lot of planning for it (and lazing around). I’m happy to say that we’ve been using our hallway bathroom for a while now although the finishing touches haven’t quite been, well, finished.

I finally got around to tiling the backsplash. It was my first time tiling anything on a vertical surface. I pretty much just decided to dive into it. “How hard can it be?” I used strips of mosaic tiles (that I cut from a 12″x12″ sheet), and applied them to the wall after putting some mortar on the wall. Next step is to grout. I wanted a small gap between the sink countertop and the tiles, so I used quarters as bottom spacers. I just cleaned off any mortar that got stuck. Hooray for free remodeling supplies!
