New Tile Kitchen Floor

Hubby put in the new tile floor in the upstairs kitchen. WOOT!

Here he is several weeks ago, ripping out the old floor - aged linoleum in a not-so-lovely brown and cream. That room was DARK! And only one light bulb to light the entire kitchen! (He put in recessed lighting, too. But the spray on popcorn ceiling treatment will have to be removed before I post ceiling photos.)

after the new backerboard for the tile was put down, tiling commenced! (That cabinet hole is where the new oven will be.)

in progress...

grouted and complete, except for the quarter inch round tile that will go around the edges under the cabinets. Note the Harvest Gold wall that was revealed under the floral wallpaper that he ripped off.

Wow, what a difference from the old floor to the new! I'm in awe of guys like Mitch and Michael who can do such things.
