Work of art is complete and grouted.  I went with Sahara Tan for the grout, one of my go colors.

Tile work in progress at NE Flanders

\n\nWe’ve been very busy at Swingset putting the finishing touches on the most adorable 1920s bungalow in the eastern end of the Laurelhurst neighborhood. I definitely need to pull out all the before photos so you can see some of the horrific things done to this poor house that we have lovingly put back together. ┬áBut this quick post is about all my fun with tile work. One of my favorite things to do is spend part of a day digging through the seconds area in the Pratt and Larson showroom. It really forces me to put my creative cap on and sometimes the tile designs I come up with using seconds and remainders are superior to those when I can choose from any color, style and amount that I need. So here are a few photos showing the tile work in progress and the finished project. A quick shoutout to Tucker at the Pratt and Larson store who is always so incredibly helpful. And I can’t forget to mention our amazing tile setter, Rob Melquist of Ceramic Stone Solutions. Working with seconds can be tricky and Rob always manages to work wonders with my designs.
