Thumbs up Backsplash Photos

Greetings,
Well, here's some photos of the most recent backsplash I just started on today.
Tomorrow I will be grouting it in, using the Hot Chocolate color.
Just a small backsplash, and the homeowner wanted to have it match up with the existing backsplash as best as it could, without tearing the old out. All of the tile was provided by them.
When I'm finished I'll try to get some close-up shots and post them too.





Kind Regards,
Ted Thomason

Very nice!! I've got a question, though-- what's that finish on either side of the stove? It almost looks like wicker!

Greetings,
I got the spacers at Lowe's - They are from Tavy - http://www.tavytools.com/
The ones in the backsplash pictures are 1/16th spacers.

Kind Regards,
Ted Thomason

I sometimes use finishing nails they work well. The room looks funny after they are all set.

Hi Ted

Nice work!

What kind of tiles are you using for the border? They look very familiar to a job I am currently installing. The ones I'm using are a cement tile with a exposed sand finish, and are about 1/2" thick.

Hi Scott

Look something like Uncle Fester's (Adam's Family) bed standing up?
