More Tile Tales

With the tile on the floor done, we worked our way up the wall (behind vanity & toilet)Because of the height of our wall and the dimensions of the tiles, we were left with about a 7 1/2″ strip near the top. Rather than “rip” a bunch of tile, we decided to add an accent strip of small basalt rocks.  These are the same mosaic stone tiles that we will be using in the walk-in shower so it ties it all together nicely.  We found gouting these stones and the vertical tiles to be a bit of a challenge…And rather messy…But I think you will agree, the results are rather spectacular.

The Toilet is back installed (just in time for more guests).  We are going to be making our own concrete vanity countertop but not until my bum shoulder heals.  So it’s a functional laundry sink for now.  Any professional tile setters out there? Building a custom shower pan for our walk-in shower is just a bit beyond my comfort zone.
