Steve and I are just about ready to reveal our updated basement floors (and walls). We have been laying tile, painting, adding trim, and so much more! I LOVE THE BASEMENT. I first posted about the installation of the tiles here.
Next up, Steve and I were on grout duty. WHAT A JOB! But overall, it did go pretty fast. We finished up the bedroom grout prior to our Christmas vacation and we finished up the main room when we returned.
Overall, I AM LOVING IT!
Enjoy the photo play-by-play!
|Tiles installed and ready for grout.|
|We mixed the grout with a tile sealant and water. Steve purchased a mixing attachment for his drill.|
|Steve's job was grouting.|
|This is what it looked like prior to sponging off the excess grout.|
|My job was to wipe off the access grout using roughly 10 sponges. I did not use a bucket of water, but instead found it easier to wash the sponges in the sink as we worked.|
|This is where we were at before Steve cleaned the floors multiple times using a vinegar/water mixture.|
|Mur-man helped too!|
I hope to reveal the basement finished very soon!
