MIA - long weekend project

This past weekend I finally dove into my kitchen tile project. A while back when our fridge broke, we couldn't find an almond replacement that would fit in the custom opening. We ended up going with black and got the stove at the same time. I knew then that I didn't want another over the stove mircrowave, so I held off on that purchase. Every time I looked at that almond microwave I said to P....we need to finish this!!! A couple of weeks ago we purchased the new fan/light and then realized....DUH...the tile doesn't cover the area where the microwave used to be! The tile was 25 years old and no where to be found....and of course I used the extra we had on a craft project! Double DUH. So we found a tile and waiting for the long weekend.
Saturday I took down the tile while P put in the new fan.  That tile took a couple of hours to remove without harming the walls.  I should have taken DURING photos, but holy crap, what a mess I was!


The Pugs tried to rest while all the noise was going on.  Seriously I have no idea how they slept at all. 

After it all came down I spackled the problem areas and cleaned up. 

Sunday morning bright and early I glued up the new tiles and then met C for lunch for a break!  On Monday I got up at 6 am and jumped into G-R-O-U-T.... gosh, I hate grouting......



Finally finished!!!  I LOVE the new fan/light and the way the glass tile turned out. P thinks I should hire myself out. Uh......no....

My kitchen sure could use an update... are you sure you don't want to hire yourself out?

Beautiful! But I don't want my mom getting any home improvement ideas that will take away time from me!
Love,

I really like it! You do good work. I'd be too scared to attempt it. Pugs make good supervisors.

They slept through the noise because they are pugs! You see we need to get used to our loud snores and so we don't mind noise.
