Saturday is the only day I get to have my hubby here, most of the time he travels or works INSANE hours. He is my SUPER HERO. He doesn't love to do my annoying decorating projects. But this Saturday he spent the WHOLE day doing "honey do's" for me. Did you hear me......THE WHOLE DAY!!! He even made a couple of dreams come true for me. (I am cheesy) Maybe it makes a difference that I have been asking for a tile back splash for about 4 years. AND when I say asking...I do mean nagging and begging. We have had some of these supplies for a very long time.
Cutie Pie! wanted to help, well for a minute. As soon as I snatched a picture he was off to play. "That's boring mom."
So there it is before. We, well.. I, had planned this in our last house, lucky we never got it done, so we had some of the stuff all ready when we moved here.
Check out this Tile setting Mat. It saved us a DAY. Normally you apply the mastic, then the tile, and wait 24 hours before grouting, and it is MESSY, Messy, MESSY!
This stuff was so cool, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. We really needed to do this in one day. It is 18"x 9" and comes with 12 sheets. for about 15$. SO WORTH EVERY PENNY.
It went pretty smooth, and we didn't have to do much cutting,
See the beautiful kitchen?? Even my kids said, mom it looks like a different house!! It took us about 4 hours start to finish. for a 12 foot wall of back splash.
