Tiles and Smiles...the PROJECT continues...

When last we left the bathroom at the Wright Place, paint was drying, tile was setting, and outside, it was snowing...a lot.  As of this evening, plaster is drying, water is running, lights are shining and outside, it is snowing...a lot. 

My able father-in-law has performed many wonders in that bathroom, not the least of which is the installation of ceramic tile surrounding the shower.  I think I heard him say that this was the first time he's ever tried anything like this. 

When you consider his methods, it's no wonder things are lookin' good!

My bathroom tile is more level than my dining room table I'm tellin' ya. 

"The Apprentice"

We learned that the larger tiles are much, much easier to place than the smaller ones.  Think greased pig meets gritting teeth. 

After the grout is applied, it must dry and then the extraneous bits  are cleaned off of the tile and wall.   

Look how far we've come...

...the before...

and the after...

I am thrilled with the finished product...

...and so is the PROJECT supervisor!
