When we bought the house, there was a big stack of tile outside that we have ignored so far. If we cleaned this tile up, we would lower the cost needed for tile on this project. Save some money? Of course! So, we got some soapy water, scrub brushes and a scraper and got to work. It only took a few hours to get most of the tile cleaned up and it was a really nice bamboo looking tile.
I made my cuts with a wet saw and stuck the tiles in place with liquid nails. I never knew how awesome of a product liquid nails was until this home remodel. At this point, my tile cutting skills are becoming very good :) Maybe I can be classified as an expert soon?
