Bathroom Backsplash



My wife said it was time to update the boys bathroom. We bought a prefabbed sink. It needed more than just that 2" back piece. My wife suggested that I try tiling it. I never really did any tile work before but I though I would give it try. I have always liked that small tile that comes in sheets. Once I decide, or should I say my wife decided on the tile, I then had to choose a border. I needed the tile high in the back but the left side presented the problem of having an outlet in the way. I decided to step the tile on that side so I did not surround the outlet and have to cut the tile. As my first job using tile It sure took me longer than I imagined, but we are very happy with the way it turned out.
