Very nice, Donna. I think the grout color is perfect. Nice looking job.

Nice work, Donna! I know how hard it is to put limestone on a wall as a first-timer - looks like you did a great job.

Pretty cat too!

Pictures of limestone tile installed

Thanks Bill for posting my pictures. The camera doesn't reflect the true color of the limestone. The last picture is the most acurate. When the bathroom is finished would you like to see the final result? It took me over a year of planning. (I know none of you would be surprised by that!) You really need to see the before pictures too.

I couldn't have done any of this without your help. So many people answered my endless posts.

A special thanks to Brian in San Diego and Bill V. for answering all of my MANY questions and being so patient. I am thrilled with the result.

riverware,

I can't take credit for the install. I was very involved with this project but I know where my limitations are. I did the layout for the walls and floor choosing the exact placement of each tile. I numbered the tiles so he just had to grab the tile and he knew exactly where it went. I also presealed 250sqft prior to the install. My contractor has been in the bussiness for about 25 years. He is not primarily a tile installer. He did the entire bathroom remodel from start to finish. This is his 3rd limestone bathroom, he has done many marble and granite though. I was the architect and designer rolled into one. My contractor and I work very well together, this was not our first project.
