FC Scores

Left alone, it didn't take me long to score.

Yup, you have to carefully score this cement backerboard with a carbide cutter before cementing it in place.
Next comes some bit of tile ...



But ...



... I'm taking a brief remodeling break where computers can't find me.
Chat with you soon.

Basil? BASIL?

FC, that's pale green!

(Looks good, though.)

Enjoy your break! That tile will wait and it is summer after all.

Susan said...

I like the basil. It's soft and also cheery. What brand is it?

Miz S said...

That's really close to my living room color! I love it. Ok fine, take your break. Get lots done.

I love the new color. You've been seriously busy here- it's looking great. Can't wait to see it tiled.

I did laugh when Bear startled at the armadillo- that's a pretty good video clip. It did occur to me, reading that post, that Bear in the morning is sort of like having a baby- hoping they'll go back to sleep after the first get up and all.

I love that green color. In fact, the dining room where I am sitting right now is painted a similar green. Very fresh and upbeat.

I can't tell. Are those tiles on the hearth or is that some kind of prep or stain?

Nice colour! That's just about what I've been thinking of for my office-turned-home-gym (read: treadmill and trampoline) room.

Can't wait to read about your remodeling break where computers can't find me! That surely means some wonderful pics to come. 8-]

T'sall okay, just went to the Florida Alps (North Georgia) for a few days.
Thanks for dropping in while I was off the reservation.

Lesle,
Who names these paints?

SC Momma,
Now you're talkin'!

Susan,
It's Valspar from Lowes and it is so easy to use.

Miz S,
Punched in and back on duty, maam!

Vicki,
HE IS SOOOO LIKE A BABY IN THAT RESPECT!!
You nailed it.

Smilin B,
OOps, went north!

Pablo,
The hearth had a basic brown tile on it and I've removed it prior to attaching the backerboard that the new tile will go on.
You are seeing the wooden box beneath and the marks left by the old tile grout lines.

Bro J,
More to come as progress happens. I think the tile decision was made today... feels like it anyway.


ThunderD,
But of course.

3C,
We're fine, just joined the girls up in the mountains for a few days.
