• Tiling the Wall in the Guest Bathroom

    Thanks to the folks at True Value, I was able to get everything I needed to begin tiling the wall in the vanity area today. I spent about $25 of our True Value gift card on tile adhesive, grout, a rubber sponge float and a small, plastic trowel. This is the first time I’ve ever attempted to tile anything, but the directions on the back of the tub o’ tile adhesive were very easy to follow…

    I used my small, notched trowel to spread some of the adhesive on the back of the tile…

    And then I used it to spread some more on the wall…

    Then I just “smushed” the tile into place…

    The directions said to let the adhesive dry for at least 24 hours, so I’ll start the grouting process tomorrow. I hope it goes as smoothly as the adhesive process!

    So what started out like this earlier today…

    Quickly looked like this…

    Then this…

    And finally this!

    Our mirror will cover the wall space in the middle of the tile. After I get it back into place, I’ve got one last piece of trim to add to the wall above the top row of tile. Then I’ll be able to get back to work on the farm table vanity. I can’t wait to get the new vessel sink into place once and for all! Washing your hands in the top of a drain pipe sticking up from the floor is no fun. :-)
