A Job to Satisfy

Our #kitchen walls were #painted white, and it was time for either a #repaint or some tiles. We stopped at the tile store and picked up 3 boxes of green #ceramic tiles, a tub of paste/grout and some of the required #tools.

I then set to work.

Starting from the bottom up everything was going nicely until I had to cut a few tiles to go around the cupboard edge. I got my pencil and marked where it needed to be cut and off to the garage I went.

I took my #hacksaw, which barely made a mark, and then took my large #wood #saw and managed to get the job done with that. It took ages and both my arms ached, one from supporting and the other from #sawing.

As the job progressed more and more #tiles needed cutting so I borrowed a tile saw and purchased a #heavy-duty tile cutter for the straight edges. Needless to say the job suddenly became a lot easier and looked more #professional.

It took one and a half days to finish the #tiling and all that is still needed is to polish the tiles. Sometimes it works to improvise and make do with what you have, but at other times having the right tools and “Know-how” really makes life a lot easier. Not to mention the overall result may go from being acceptable to outstanding.
