You can already see the difference

We're going to let the tile cure over night and then apply the grout. The white dealy-bobs are spacers to keep the tiles 'bout 1/4 an inch apart. You'll notice that the shower glass has already been replaced. More to come.

One word of advice for future do-it-yourselfers . . . don't take on a project you can't complete within a reasonable amount of time. It's taken us over a month to complete this bathroom, mostly because we can only work on it one day a week. Had it been the summer, this project could've been done within a week.

Wow, that is looking good! Makes me want to go home and rip up some linoleum...almost.

Heh, don't get started . . .. You start one project and pretty soon the whole house is fair game.

Oh yeah, do I know about that!

The previous owner of our house (late 1930's bungalow) had been there 40 years, so we had to remove shag carpet and old wallpaper from every single room. We still have so much to do, but it least we have most of the painting finished.
