We had this bare piece of plywood covering the half-wall between the register and the office area. It’s the perfect place for our credit card machine and a calculator, since our cash register takes up a good part of our register table now. (We’re still feeling our way a bit in the new shop.)
So we went to Home Depot (the tile guy was very helpful) for some tile, decided to get a one-inch mosaic, because we have no cutting tools, redi-mixed glue and grout and three square feet of a cute copper glass that looked really cool on the sample board at the store.
Here’s how it went:
I had to cut a couple of rows off each sheet, but they became my counter edge (not shown).
The trowel was the perfect width for this little job.
Then I pressed on them a bit and could feel the tile mesh sink into the glue for a good grip.
I thought I had a photo of the edge and all the beautiful grouting I did. But it looks amazing and all the home improvement shows I’ve watched were worth it.
