Mosaic Tile Backsplash

So we finally finished tiling, grouting and caulking the backsplash for our 2nd bathroom. It took such a long time because we were pretty lazy.

Here’s the breakdown of the costs:
1) Jeffrey Court 5/8 Vintage Merlot 12 In. x 12 In. Glass Wall Tile (from Home Depot) - $13.99 each. We used 2 sheets and cut each 12×12 sheet into three strips.
2) 1LB Laticrete Tile Repair & Bathroom Fixture Adhesive (Mortar) - $2.94
3) 1LB Laticrete Unsanded Grout - Bright White - $1.88
4) White caulk - We already had this in the toolbox so I’ll count it as $0!
Total after tax: $35.82

Not too shabby if you ask me. I gotta say that grout really makes a difference. I wasn’t as enthusiastic about the color/texture mix when the sheets went up, but after the grout went in, I really liked how it turned out. It seemed to mellow out the colors (if that makes any sense).

Next up is to finally put on those baseboards!
