We still need to seal and grout and seal once more, but all of the tile is in place so as promised (even if our kitchen is in a chaotic condition), here’s how it looks:
The area on the left is where the fridge goes. We tiled back enough so the effect of a fully tiled wall was there. The piece of wood is temporary. We screwed it in place as a guide for the tile–to keep it straight and also as a support. There’s also a piece of wood temporarily behind the oven where we carried the tile straight across. Placing each and every marble tile took us a grand total of 26 hours. Chris made all of the cuts and I laid the tile, and both of our fingertips ended up raw. But we couldn’t be happier with the results.
We’ll be sure to clean things up after we grout and have official before and afters of the kitchen for you next week. We have a lot to do before our first two showings this weekend. EEee! I’m only a little panicking.
Have a happy weekend!
