Nicole's Kitchen Remodel…Part 6

The New Backsplash

Nicole chose a new tile:


After we got back from FL I went to town with her to pick up the tile.

Mike starts off by spreading the mortar on the wall:


Making it thick to cover the grooves from the previous mess:



Nicole starts adding her new tile:



Looking a little more neutral:)



Nicole working in the corner:



Almost done with this side of the kitchen:



The new tile is on the wall:




Nicole finished the other side on her own and sent me a picture:



Nicole has a few steps before anything can be caulked.  This is a tumbled marble tile.  Nicole said the tile needs to be sealed, then do the grouting to fill in the holes on the tile, and then it needs to be resealed.  She got all of that done before Mike and I went back.


Mike did the caulking for her:




Yay…the kitchen is finished and Nicole is happy again:)



Nicole's kitchen went from:

I hope you enjoyed this update.  Now it's time to order my new counter:)


Have a great week.

  4. The new backsplash looks good. You have confirmed my dislike for the little glass tiles. I think they were a fad, but I'm sorry she had to do hers twice. I'm in the market for a backsplash myself, and Nicole's experience helped me figure out what I want. gentlearts

    1. Mine also. Just a quick fix. I posted Nicole's tile as travertine. She corrected me as she bought tumbled marble. Just in case you look for what she has:)

  8. I liked both of them but the lighter color is really better overall. I'm strange like that though.....lol.

  9. Just checking to see if you guys are still alive....it's been almost two weeks, and we really miss our M&L World updates. I figured with good weather, there would be tons of stuff being done around the homestead.
    How are the saplings taking? Sometimes its a crap-shoot with those small trees.

    Any new projects....or just working on the ones you have, such as the gardens?
    Hope to hear from you guys soon....
