Tiling the front entry has finally begun

I sure procrastinated with this one. And I know exactly why.

I LOVE tile. I love it's workhorse functionality, it's rustic beauty and just everything about it. There's simply nothing to dislike about it!

Except for laying it I suppose. I might be tempted to slot tiling right up there alongside my joy for dapping. Tiling, when done right is outright gorgeous. But doing it right is the key. And doing it right takes time for those that don't do it everyday.

'Nuff excuses. The tiling has begun. And I'm doing something different again. I'm coming into the entryway from the laundry room on the bias, however in the center of the entryway, the tile will be squared off, so the bias tile will wrap around the squared off tile. And I might get slightly daring and do abit of a border trim around the square part.

But egads, that takes time. I know it'll so be worth the effort when I walk on it many times over during the course of every single day. It's just that it's so much more 'fun' to paint and arrange and decorate stuff, ya know?

I will persevere Tuesday again and will even throw in a picture as proof. Really. I will. I have to now because I said I would. So I will. Sigh..

  2. Yep, and guess who is going to hold you to that promise? lol
