DIY projects are all about laying tile. We're
remodeling 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. Here's a hint:
When working with
cement products, like mortar and grout, it's always best to measure
generously. If you have to stop what you're doing to mix up another
batch, it can really throw a monkey wrench into the project. This means
you'll probably have some mortar or grout left over after the task is
complete. Don't throw it out. Plan ahead and have some molds ready to
take the leftovers. It's always nice to have some extra bricks or stepping
stones for landscaping. Here is a photo of a garden step made of grout.
Bob used a plastic
icecream bucket as a mold and coated the sides with oil so it wouldn't
stick. The step is about 8" in diameter and almost 2" thick.
He left the top textured, but he could have smoothed it out or even
stamped a pattern into it.
Here are some hints
and photos about laying tile.
