Tiling the Shower in Just 15 Hours!

We made some real success on the bathroom last weekend, and got the bathtub tiled in! Jon is the master tiler, while I ran the tile wet saw with speed and precision. My little saw is pictured here on the right.

You can fuss and plan and organize all you want, but at some point you gotta start putting tiles on the wall. This was around 10 a.m. on Saturday.
Safety first...always wear eye protection when running a saw.

This is a real picture of me. While flipping though the pics, there was something very familiar about this photo...let's see...I know I've seen this look before...oh lord....

The detail work! A simple band of earth-toned tiles, nothing extravagant, but a little bit fancy.

We finished up around 1 a.m., and were short a couple tiles, so had to complete the final two rows the next morning.

Plus, new lights!! We still have to paint, but the new lights make the room seem a little more finished.

Next up...grout!!

I am very impressed with your industriousness. Love the accent tiles!

Yes, the accent tiles are beautimous! And I particularly liked the "JN + AN" within a heart on one of those tiles. Nice work!

Thanks guys! We used an eyeliner pencil to mark center tiles and bull-nosed edge tiles...I couldn't help but adding a little grafitti. :)

Good job! Is that all you did?

Naw, I did 5 loads of laundry and made beef barley mushroom soup too. But my mom had to help me get the beery taste out of the soup, so I didn't want to take credit for that too. ;)
