I priced ceramic tiles for this project. Yikes! And it would also add way too much weight. So I made my own tiles using scrap wood from Randy’s waste bin. A couple short bits of 4×4 and some 2×4 & 2×6’s. I used some stain/varnish to color and seal the wood so the grout wouldn’t discolor it then colored the white grout with some powdered black Tempera left from the olden days and varnished it all over again to seal it. I am quite pleased with it and it not only cost nothing (the stain and varnish have been languishing in the paint locker for ???) but I learned how to use the chop saw in the process! Also, I give credit to another Spencer… he of H & G channel’s ‘Design On A Dime” where I saw him using thin cut 4×4 for another project and 💡 !
Now it’s the kitchen. Got the old cabinets down and one of the new ones up, but Himself has to move electricity for the lights before we can put the rest up. X you fingers!
