Putting the 'Custom' in Custom Tile

Posted 05-16-2009 at 04:40 PM by orson

I bought my better half a toilet for Christmas.
I know, that doesn't sound like a particularly good idea in general and, as it turned out, it wasn't. She did, however, very much want the toilet replaced. Of course when it came time to install the new toilet I couln't reconcile myself to the idea of putting a shiny new toilet on an old and unattractive vinyl floor.
Ripping out the vinyl revealed 5/8 inch plywood rotted out around the toilet as well as a toilet flange that was completely...
