About Me

I started this blog at the urging of my AK friends to help relay my moving to WA. I'm hoping this blog will evolve into a place where I share my home-decorating/remodeling, craft projects, and adventures in dog-ownership.

Thanks for reading!!

To Do List...Tiling

Thank you This Old House!  I got the tiles glued to the wall yesterday, tomorrow GROUT!!  This time I'm going to color the grout grey to start with.  Last time I ended up going back and painting the grout, because it was too light, this time I will try to get it the right darkness to start.

I decided to make more of a backsplash behind the stove.  I'm going to make a removable backsplash for behind the sink, really soon...

So here are the pictures:

First the prep. Which really takes the most time.

Halfway done

 And done! Well I have to wait for the glue to set, so grouting happens on Sunday. Did a really good job cleaning the stove while it was out (not as bad as the first time we took out the stove, but it was nice to clean thoroughly none the less.)
