Chemically Applied Tile

After getting what we saw as an outrageous quote to tile a very small bathroom ($1500) I am teaching myself to tile a shower this morning. I've read books, watched videos and TV show, had a high sugar breakfast of cinnamon toast, downed a handful of chemical tablets and am ready to go. Well not really but it's the only way it's going to get done. By the way the 1500 dollar quote took in to account that we have all the needed supplies sitting right there. I really think this was an I Don't Really Want This Job Quote. Well it worked. As they say I'm jocked out and stacked up. Got my supply of Vicodin for the after work pain extravaganza.

Good luck, Dean, I'm sure you're up to the task.

Putting in tile isn't hard it's the bending and stretching and using your knees for things they shouldn't be used for.

Hope you aren't too sore tonight. If it makes you feel better think about all the money you didn't spend!

Stephen and What If, thanks for your support! I managed to get one wall mostly done and it looks good. That one wall though was enough for my junk knee and all the other things that are affected by it. Thank God for certain chemicals that make life bearable. I'm a big ol' boy and me, a bucket of mud, a box o' tile a 2 by and rubber mallet make for an interesting fit in a liitle shower.
