Who would have thought that after 2 or 3 years of cement (it's been so long that now I can't even remember! LOL).... that the hubby would actually get motivated at the last minute & decide to put down our ceramic tile floor in the kitchen THIS WEEKEND! Here is a "before" shot....Here is a shot of the Hubby cutting tile on his new wet-saw. We priced renting one & we could buy this little saw for the same price! Go figure. We do still have both bathrooms to tile eventually, and the purchase already paid for itself getting through the kitchen floor. It was a messy job, but someone had to do it. :)Here is a "in progress" shot. We laid out the whole floor first. Got all the cuts made & everything before we cemented it down.Here is a shot of the hubby mixing the cement.... I swear I was helping all day! LOL I was just the one behind the camera when I had a minute. There was one hilarious moment that I didn't catch on camera.... notice that he has on a different T-shirt now than earlier.... the first batch he mixed was like turning on the blender without the lid on, it went everywhere! It was sooooo funny! I tried not to laugh, honest. Luckily he thought it was pretty funny too.And...... here is a finished shot! It's all in place & cemented down. It is drying tonight, tomorrow we will do all the grout. It was a very successful day! A lot of work but very successful.
