First tile project finally finished

Thanks! Couldn't have done it without the help from the forum. Went with 16x16 travertine with noche diamond insets. Took way to long to finish. I had to do the ogee trim pieces twice after that premixed cr@p from home depot wouldn't set after sitting for a week. I took it all off and re-did it with thinset and a lot of tape. I also polished the edges with a palm sander which also took quite a long time. Oh yea, also learned that a hammer + a shirt does NOT equal a rubber mallet.
