I had never planned, thought about or installed a single ceramic tile in my life before I set about to tile my basement bathroom.
I take that back. I did paint a tile once. Just one.
I think it was at one of those vacation bible school weeks in the middle of summer. You know, where your Mom just needs to be "uncrazy" for a few days so she drops you and your 4 sisters off and then screeches out of the parking lot? Or was that just me?
I digress. The point is, it was new to me. But so what. Tiling a floor or a shower is the quintessential DIY project. If you can't do this one then you might as well hang it up. Bob Vila won't even look you in the eye if you haven't tiled at least one floor in your life.
