Looks like icing, tastes like glue

by - Monday, September 15, 2008

Take a bucketful of fluffy white tile glue...
Add some polished calcutta marble mini tiles...

Sift out threads of tile netting...

Mix well using equal parts elbow grease, determination, and HandyMan talent...

Apply carefully...

And let sit for 24 hours.

Grouting to follow!

  1. It's looking good! My MIL recently had her kitchen professionally renovated and both of you have the same colour palette, but I'd have to say the two are strikingly similar so you guys have honestly done a fantastic job! I'll send photos of her kitchen to your facebook account next time. Good job!

  2. Wow, I'm extremely hormonal ... those pics gave me goosebumps!

  3. Wow, the kitchen looks fantastic! I wish I had chosen that marble subway tile for my kitchen backsplash.

  4. Wow. The backsplash really does give just that extra bit of impact for your room. I can't wait to see the new hardware on the doors and drawers!

  5. popcorn - Thanks! Would love to see photos of her kitchen!

    mrs.leah.maria - goosebumps - and its not even completely finished yet.

    Thanks remodel_addict. The marble adds a little bit of texture and sparkle to the backsplash. We're really happy with how it looks.

    katherine - you and me both! Hopefully, handles will go in on Friday and I can finally use the kitchen :)

  6. I am in love with your backsplash. Seriously, I want to marry it, it's so stunning! It really adds that finishing touch to an already beautiful kitchen reno.
    Where did you purchase the tile, again?

    Oh, it is just so so so so so so pretty. I love it. You must be feeling so much satisfaction for such a beautiful job so well done.


  8. That is one gorgeous kitchen!

  9. Glad you all like the tile. I hope it'll still look as good once the grout is in :)

    freckles chick - we got the tile at Hopefully, there's a store near you.

  10. Great choice - looks fantastic and very design magazine worthy!

  11. Looks fantastic! I am eagerly awaiting all your "final" pictures with hardware, appliances, curtains, etc.

    Question: In one of the pictures it shows the tiles all lying separately... you didn't have to lay them individually, did you?!?

    On TV they always show the tiles laid out on some sort of flexible backing so they can put them on in big squares...

  12. Thanks mer!

    Thanks megan!

    donna - you'll have to wait just a little while longer for the final pics (will this reno ever end? lol)...hardware and valances go in next Friday finally!

    Nope, you're right, the tiles did come in sheets. However, we did have to put in some individual tiles to fill some spaces where the sheets came together. If we had to lay them all individually - I think we wouldn't do it :o\

  13. I'm so impressed! I love this look. Can't wait to see the kitchen when it's finished! -Julia

  14. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the marble tile!

  15. Thanks Julia! One more week and I think I'll have the final pics up :)

    Corey - thanks! Oh, I think you'll have to buy a Griffin Evolve for your kitchen too ;)

    mikeandmcgee - the tile came out just as I hoped. Pictures with the grouting coming up soon!

  16. Oh WOW! I LOVE the tile! Your kitchen looks just stunning. I just posted on WB looking for backsplash inspiration - any chance you and your handy hubby want a side job on the west coast?
