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...

I've always loved wood.

My father was a store designer and display man --also a DIYer so typical of the world war two veteran.

The smell of freshly cut wood brings back memories of my dad.

I have, in the past few weeks, written blogs about choosing floor surfaces, backsplashes, countertops, sinks, cutting boards and a myriad of other things to consider when remodeling a kitchen or bathroom. The one thing that I have avoided, until today, is cabinetry and I do so reluctantly for a couple of reasons. Although I don’t put myself forward as a true “expert” on anything I blog about I do carefully research most things so as to supplement the knowledge that I do have and that I have gained...
