Once the shower was tiled, it was time to add a little bling to the walls. You might have been wondering back when we first posted the painted room why the room was painted duo-toned.
The plan is to use just a little of a glass mosaic tile we fell in love with, but was way too pricey to fill a whole wall with, in a minimal way to create a big impact.
My first step was to measure to where the top of the vanity would sit, so that our tile would sit directly behind the sink and double as a back splash. Beautiful and functional- impressed?
Then I tacked up a nickle colored tile edge track that I had cut to the exact length of the wall. I made sure I was nailing directly into the studs for a strong connection, and my large, flat head nails held the track up securely.
Then I spread thin set on the wall, directly over the track and on the wall above it. We cut the 12" x 12" tile sheets in half to make each a 6" x 12" piece, then placed each piece up on on track and firmly into the thin set. Once I had an entire stretch of wall completed, I topped it with a second piece of track by sliding it carefully behind the tiles and into the thin set .
Which just left a little thin set left to wipe off the top. And just like that-booyah!
I love the way this tile is bringing our color pallet into the room, and I can't wait to get the rest of the stuff in there already! But first we have grout and floor tile to go. More to come!
