Continuing Bathroom WIP

texaswildMarch 2, 2010

Been a long time since I worked on the bathroom mosaics. Since it's impossible for this old body to work directly on the wall, except for the shells and gems, I cut three pieces of luan for the substrate. Bordered around it directly w/red glass gems and added shells, painted purple w/Rub and Buff. Don't know where I'll go next, but I like it so far.

Well, isn't that just great? I love it, if nothing else, it will lift me out of my dumps. I will get my grouting clothes on and get busy. I have done so many things since I have been recovering and now I may be able to lift them to grout. You have done a great job so far. Are you going all the way with this? Is this the front or back bath?

So when is the open house?

This is really amazing Slow!! Everything just flows and everywhere you look there is something wonderful...bravo!

Question for you: if I am going to mosaic a 7" strip across my bathroom wall(where I currently have a wallpaper border) do I have to put up backerboard first? I can't thinset onto drywall, right?

Thanks, y'all. GC: I did - right over the painted drywall for above the backsplash - except the first application at the tippy top. I put those three pieces on plywood cuz I couldn't work that high. On the counter/backsplash, I put backerboard over plywood. I used Mapei UltraFlex II mortar for the adhesive, and on the grout for the counter/backsplash, I mixed half grout and half mortar.

aka_strawberrygoat

that's stunning, no matter how sick you say you are of it, I never, ever get tired of that project and again, I have deleted the picture on the computer screen for one of your pieces of work...lol
so, the one of the 3 on the far right is the one I have on monitor now.
...
do you mind taking a picture of the entire work, standing out in the hallway?..
I'd just like a perspective of it and will most likely put that one on the monitor...lol

love it!....just love it.

Well, hey, girlie: Nice to see you back too. Re your request for a picture of the entire work, don't I WISH my bathroom was large enough for me to get a shot of the whole thing. No way is that possible - the b.r. is off my bedroom, and not large enough for me to step back for a shot. I'm very flattered, though, that you like it so much.
