Nothing’s really finished yet in our main bathroom, but big things have been happening the last couple of days! Here’s a taste of what a person can do with $16 worth of discounted/chipped tile. It ended up being a little more than that because he had to go back to Lowe’s to get a few more matching (whole) tiles.
That first picture is Roger using the machine that threatened my sanity for most of a day. Malin is in the background measuring tile for her own Malin-project. (I’d post a picture of that, but it got thrown into a bin of extra tile and taken up to Krestan Hall.)
Then there’s Malin using the tile saw. I was a little startled to overhear Roger asking our 8-year-old daughter if she wanted to help him cut tile. But, as usual, he knows what he’s talking about. As it turns out, the blade of a tile saw is nothing like a table saw blade. Or a chain saw. Or any of those other nightmare-inducing power tools.
The mess was enough to cause nightmares – but it’s mostly cleaned up now. I sent all 5 of them out to gather maple sap; then locked the front door so they couldn’t get back in. I swept and double mopped everything. My house feels like my own again. 🙂
(Yeah, I let them back in eventually – with harsh warnings about not walking on my wet floors.) 🙂
Picture #3 is a bona fide in-progress mess.
The last two shots are shower walls waiting for grout.
And that’s possibly more than you wanted to know.
