Apparently I wasn’t finished with the powder room redo. : ) (Am I really ever done?) I decided the wall behind the sink needed a tile backsplash. It was just a plain wall that gets wet with water. I actually heard it call out for some tile! I found exactly what I was looking for at Home Depot. The marble/glass “liner”, a 2.3/4 x 12 inch piece, is only $2.94 each! The color is called MARAZZI Artisan Coco.
I have not tackled a tiling job before, but I made it easy on myself. I peeled off each 1/2 inch size square and placed it on the wall one by one. Seven rows of 39 tiles across. That’s 273 tiles I place by hand. But who’s counting. Oh yeah, the “easy” part was not having to grout OR cut any tiles. Side by side the tiles fit absolutely perfect. I got lucky on that one!
I am afraid to tell you what I used for glue. I did all my research and got names of adhesives that would work on tile, but I’m not a permanent kind of girl. The thought of never having the option of removing the tiles or completely ruining the wall if I do was just too much for me. So I used caulk. Yes, caulk. I figured I could just get a scrapping tool under there at take the tile right off when the time came. So while it worked for a powder room that doesn’t get moisture from showers or baths, I’m not going to recommend one type of glue. Do some research and decide for yourself. I hereby am not responsible for any of your tile sliding of the wall. Ha!(Please note: After 3 days, the tile is still where it should be. Yeah!)
I apologize for the quality of the pictures. Trying to work on that. Just for the record, the sink is white. It comes across a cream color in the pictures. (And if you received my last post twice and this post without pictures, Sorry!! For some reason I keep losing my pictures.)
