I NEED HELP!!!!!!!

How in the world do you decide what color, shape, size, design of tile to use on the walls. The new counters are very light so I didn't want something to light on the walls. I will try and take pictures of what we have selected so far.

Not the best pictures but they will give you and idea of what it looks like. There are several different pieces of tile. Only one of each kind to check out the color in the light of our kitchen.



The two pictures above are the same thing. One is just closer than the other. The bottom piece, all the little small pieces, has pieces of the same tile as the larger piece above it. At the very top is a half round bronze color glass tile. That kind of finishes off the top and it matches the darker pieces in the bottom group of tiles. See the little dark oblong pieces. I kind of like this.

These tiles are darker. The bottom and the square in the middle match. I don't know about the strip above the bottom piece. It is prettier in person and has a shine to it. I like the tile right below the half round, the dark narrow piece. It is a beautiful color and looks like crystals sprinkled through it. I don't like the arrangement.

The only thing different here is the 6 X 6 square tile. It is the same color as the tile in the first two picture. The little square tiles.

Anyway these are a few pieces we bought today to see how they looked with the counter. I forgot to take one of the cutting boards of corian with me to look at tile. I will remember next time.

Do you think I need colored tile? I had thought of just white with trim in color. I just don't know. I glad I'm not building a house it would take me forever to decide.

I do have help coming, yeah! Brneyedgal, my daughter, will be here Friday. Then the shopping, decorating, work begins.

I'm off work 5 days. I don't go back until Tuesday. We can have it done by then, right?

Oh wow. I really like the multi-colored oblong piece that looks like a mosaic. LOVE THAT. I also like the darker large tiles - I wonder what those would look like on the diagonal.

The oblong pieces that you said look like there are shiny crystals in it - I like them, but not with the multi-colored one... they don't match. I also like the half-round bronze piece... that's purty.

You're doing the right thing - we'll make different arrangements, photograph them and then narrow it down to our favorites. Then if we can't decide... make that if YOU can't decide, we can always post it on yours or my blog to get a vote.

We'll get it done by Tuesday. Ummm... are we just selecting and ordering or also doing the tile work? It's been a while since I've done it, but I'm sure it'll come back to me.

See you Friday!

I was hoping we could get everything selected and bought Friday. (Get here early) I think we can do the work, you and I. We could rent a tile saw from the rent a center place here in town.

I wish I was off all this week but I can't do that. Our dockets have been huge. With only two of us on our floor. We work our butts off just trying to keep our heads above water.

I leave for New Orleans Thursday at 1:00pm. She could actually leave Thursday after taking me to the airport.

Ha, you have been told on. What are you all doing Thanksgiving? Are you having it early? Do you know what your brother and his family are doing? We are suppose to go to sister #1's house. If your coming up then we could be back home early.

I'm liking the little tiles that are all different colors. That'll add some pizzazz! I'm also pretty darned fond of the faucet. What a pretty kitchen!

Thanks Junebug, I hope when we are done it will be pretty.

Mom - I guess you got my e-mail? I'll be there Thursday, probably around 6ish. I didn't realize Harley Guy left so early, usually it's later. I e-mailed you a list of supplies to get if you get a chance, it'll save us time.

This will be fun! When's the last time we did a project together?!?

herMomsometimes said...

uhhh! Never.

Wrong. We painted the living room and entry way - about 10 years ago.

Just remember....If you want to get done by Sunday you will have to limit her Vodka intake!!!

Hers, what about mine! :-)

Well, there are just too many choices for me to be of any help. I'm a Libra, so I like them all. Naturally.

I say give yourselves time to almost complete the job, then start on The Vodka Therapy. It'll change your life. I swear.

Oh. Wait. I think you already knew that...
