Tah-Dah, OR: WHAT WAS I THINKING? - Hello friends. I was going to post this about two hrs ago but had to check all of your WONDERFUL entries since I had logged on last. I feel totally inadequate looking at your FAST work, since this project took forever. This was by far the most challenging project I have undertaken. Mostly, because I HAD NO CLUE what I was doing. I was anxious to get going so started cutting the glass before DH made the actual backerboard base. Because I cut it larger (easy to cut it down later, right? -- WRONG!: it was like making it all again when I had to fit it properly). I got very uptight trying to place the pieces perfectly, which I found very difficult, mostly due to the oval cutout. I ended up cutting several new pieces, hopefully it doesn't show. I don't like the irregular spaces, and there are a lot of mistakes. (DH claims only I can see them but I don't think so). All in all I really enjoyed this project just BECAUSE it was such a challenge. I opted for the back splash on a backerboard strip b/c I felt it would be easier to install, which it was, but I'm not so sure about the straight lines. That's why I'm thinking of tying it in with some more wall painting. -- But I'm already thinking about several new mosaic projects.
I love visiting this forum, all of you feel like old friends. Thanks for your support -- and continue your wonderful inspiring work.
