So here is where we started last week:
LP picked up the tiling process really quickly, so she ended up doing most of it while I just "supervised." She did a great job!! 12x12 mosaic sheets are so easy to use too that it made the whole process that much easier. If we needed to cut around an outlet or corner, we could usually just cut the mesh backing as needed and continue on our merry way. We actually only needed to cut (with a wet saw) 5-6 individual tiles around the edges of the outlet. We really lucked out with the spacing! And speaking of spacing, the 12x12 sheets are also great because they come on the mesh backing already spaced, so you don't need individual spacers for this project. Another step eliminated!!!
The last step, and probably the most tiresome was the grouting. With the way the schedule fell this weekend, we didn't have time to do the grouting before we left, so LP tackled this on her own Tuesday and Wednesday. It was tedious but it came out really nice. Here is the final before and after:
