Bathroom Tiling Project Stats:

  • 70 tile squares laid
  • 132 tiny tiles cut with a deafening tile saw
  • 6 major cuts on my hand from using nippers
  • 2 tiles cut with nippers before realizing that the use of nippers was dangerous to my health
  • 3 breaks taken to run up to Timmy Ho’s for a bathroom break (and more coffee)
  • 5 different steps into the adhesive with flip flops
  • 7.5 hours to finish laying the tile

And it’s done and it looks so good!  I can’t say that was an easy project.  Combine my desire to achieve perfection with an un-square and un-level bathroom and you’ve got a recipe for a nervous breakdown.  Good thing Colby was at work while I tackled this project!  But because of the tile design, I was able to shift tiles enough to mask the un-squareness and give the appearance of an even bathroom.  Check it out:
