I Painted My Tile Floor and Here's What Happened.

Image
We had wanted to change our foyer tiles before we even bought the house.. it was always one of the things we were going to do. But it was low on the priority list and so five and a half years later we finally came around to it. The tiles lead into our powder room which as most of you know is also a project we are working on. While we hired someone to fix up the bathroom, after reading and watching many youtube videos about how to paint tile we decided we would give it a go.  Step One - Sand the tiles. I have an electric sander from when we re did M's office . That is the only way this would have been possible. I would not have been able to sand such a large space by hand and would have most likely skipped the step. I did not see much difference in the tiles after sanding so it could have skipped. If you have any missed grout now is the time to have it filled and fixed. Step Two - Clean the tiles. I bought a degreaser and hand cleaned the tiles twice.  Step Three - M tap

The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter

The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter Synopsis - With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop.  Studying the body, Sara Linton—the GBI’s newest medical examiner and Will’s lover—realizes that the extensive blood loss didn't belong to the corpse. Sure enough, bloody footprints leading away from the scene indicate there is another victim—a woman—who has vanished . . . and who will die soon if she isn’t found.  But the worst is yet to come. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case . . . and the consequences will tear through his life with the force of a tornado, wreaking havoc for Will and everyone around him, including his colleagues, family, friends—and even the suspects he pursues. My Thoughts - This was my sixth Karin Slaughter book, all part of the Will Trent series. I don't thi

I just about disappeared there didn't I? And it wasn't even to do anything fun.. :( Remember the powder room renovations I spoke about in my last post .. which was over a month ago.. well after getting 90% off it completed we hit a bit of a bump in the road.. while in Morocco last spring we found and impulsively purchased a handmade brass sink and faucet. While we did place a call to our contractor friend before making the purchase, it never occurred to any of us that the supply lines in the US are different from those in Europe. So while we have been searching for a solution none has been found :( Additionally, the little DIY I was working on took on a life of its own and while we estimated it would take a week or so to do it ended up taking a month. A month of doing nothing else.. argh! It turned out beautifully and I'll hopefully share it all with you very soon it was murderous work. Our spring break is less than a month away so that is something we are all very m
