I was so excited when Jamie called the other day ( he's a professional tile guy) and said he had an opening to come put the subway tile on our kitchen backsplash! I have been waiting for another person who agreed to do it but never showed up... you know how that goes. I'm glad we got Jamie and as you can see... ummm... he was well worth the wait.! LOL!
We talked about his teenage daughters.. one in college and one in high school. And he has a ten year old son... so he's one super busy dad.
Anyway... here is the work in progress....
I chose antique white for the grout and almost had a heart attack when Jamie started to apply it! It looked so dark! He said it would lighten as it dried... I sure hope so!!
Shortly after all grout was applied... those grout lines were still a little dark I thought..
Then... the weather outside turned frightful! A winter storm and overnight the view out my kitchen window turned into a magical and beautiful sight!
A good night to light the candles and let them glow against that new tile! Ahhhh.. and still hoping that grout would lighten up a bit before morning.
So the kitchen BEFORE the tile went on.....
What do you think? Was it worth the wait?
