Shaughnn! You ARE my new neighbor! I'm in South Bellevue right next to Renton. (In fact, I'll be hitting the lumber store in Renton tomorrow.) Nice to know there is a tile expert close by!

So I guess tape is the obvious way to keep grout out of my caulk lines? I thought maybe there'd be some other clever method that I was missing.

Beth,
Grout it all and then use a couple of shaped popsicle sticks a dental pick and a stiff new toothbrush to carve the fresh grout out of the joints while shaping the channel for the caulk.

Hmmm...that sure doesn't sound easier, Shaughnn, but I can see how it'd maybe end up neater that way. Interesting...

Beth,
How complex is your caulk joint? The fresh grout should carve very easily and with a vetical surface the waste will just fall away. Use the toothbrush to clean out the joints after they've been carved. Call it "adventure" and make sure the kids want a piece of that action too.

It's just the straight lines along the cabinets and sink. I get what you're saying now, that should work nicely.

I was going to fix my dead pic links, but I guess there's a time limit to editing posts? Ah well. Next time I do an update, I'll repost the early pics too.

Oh! That joint?!!? I just use the corner of my margin trowel, most often.

I had to go look up what a margin trowel was. Okay, sounds easy.

Hi Beth!

I've been sitting here for over a decade and still no reposted pics.

I'm starting to get very bored...

(I really would like to see them again. It is a fantastic project worth bumping for others to see also, if only we had pics. )
