This should NOT be viewed as a “How to Tile” post. If anything, it is a “How Not to Tile” post. We are not professionals. This was the first tile job for both of us. Hopefully, our story will provide amusement and the attitude of “Hey, if they can do it, anyone can!” However, unless you are a professional, experienced amateur or a masochist, I recommend that you hire someone to do the work for you.
Day One: Saturday, March 16, 2013
We got a late start. Since it was the first day of spring break, we stayed in bed a little longer than normal, but it felt really good not to have to get up and go to work. After we finally rolled out of bed and ate breakfast, I started moving the furniture out of the dining room so that we would have room for the kitchen appliances.
Douglas pulled the stove out for me, and I painted the wall back there. It was really disgusting! You can get a reminder of what it used to look like while reading “The Time It Rained in the Basement…. And Other Plumbing Stories.”
