Kitchen Tile 101

This is the kitchen floor before we thought of redoing it. See Christopher waiting for cookies. This is after Mikie ripped up all of the linoleum. See all the junk he piled everywhere.

This is just starting the first row of tile. The tile in the middle is the center of both rooms. Several rows done now plus the laundry room. See the little crosses sticking up they are to space out the tile evenly. Who comes up with this stuff.
This is all the whole pieces down. Now we just have to make cuts around the edges.
This is the laundry room. Mikie grouted it the other day. We didn't realize the grout was the wrong color until we mixed the other grout today. It was suppose to be light grey. We decided to take it up. So not a fun job.
Christopher got in on the action. He helped take up the grout, vacuum, and sponge the grout.

Here I am taking up the grout. I left Mikie's pic out cause I don't think he would like it much.
This is a close up of the kitchen floor. Don't mind the dirt and grout spread about.
This is the breakfast area completed.
And down the kitchen. The light grey looks way better than the dark ever did.
This was a really big job. Thank goodness Mike has laid tile before. If he hadn't I do not think we would be done so quick.

Wow, even with all the mess it looks fantastic! Can I have Mike for a week to do my floors??? Oh, I better ask if he works for food first.

More than likely he would work for food. He keeps saying he is doing the kitchen for me. I tell him he lived there and uses it also..
