Tonight I got to try something I've been wanting to do forever: tiling grout. Rob did all the tiling of the backsplash yesterday when I was out, so I missed that part (which sounded like a huge pain, considering all the cuts to avoid outlets). Here are a few photos, and I plan to write a post on Issues You May Run Into When Tiling a Backsplash. (Ie, Don't Screw Up Like We Did.)
I am LOVING how this is all coming together. Since it's night, the light doesn't do it justice in these photos, but I'm also excited to be a little vague so we can do a huge big reveal. Soon. I keep saying soon, but I mean it this time.
Hope you aren't bored with all the kitchen setbacks and that these little reveals are getting you excited for the whole thing. I am stoked to finally have the house together, and every setback and slow process and mess in the floor has been totally worth it for this amazing kitchen!
***UPDATE!*** We woke to find that I should not yet claim to be a groutist--there were lots of areas where the grout cracked overnight because I was stingy with the grout and maybe a little excessive in cleaning the tiles after. More fodder for the post on How Not to Screw Up Your Grout post. :)
