Debbie, most of us use an outside hosting site like Flickr or Photobucket and then use their url or html hotlinks to post here. the question of grouting over... Did the unsanded grout sink and leave a depression?

You could always give the grout a paint wash....

Glad to see you back. What do you have to lose? Regrout is what I'd do.

IMO, if you re-grout w/the sanded, it'll adhere to the unsanded. Give it a try. Everything I do is an experiment. If it works, fine, if it doesn't, I've learned something. To post a picture, copy the URL or hotmail link on your picture and paste it into the message here.

I agree with Slow, I'd just go over it with sanded grout. its worth a shot, right?
