Then, once the old counters were off, the workmen arrived with our new counters and seamless sink.

So, neither Tom nor I have ever laid tile before.
But, how hard could it be?
I started my border pattern of stones at the end of the counter and worked my way along...
I stopped for the day after getting this border all the way around.
I was pretty proud of myself since I have never, ever laid tile before!
Once I got all the tiles up on the wall that I could do without cutting, I was at a standstill until we could get a friend over to help.
Thankfully, just such a friend came by after Thanksgiving and blessed us with 6 hours of hard work, cutting each little square one at a time! He was a true angel!
So, once all the tiles were in their place, it was time to try my hand at grouting!
This was a BIG JOB, but I was up for the challenge!
It took me about 3 hours, but the grout is finally done!
A little recap of my tile journey!
I have two very, very raw fingers currently in band-aids as I type, but it was worth it!
