Grout of this World

Grouting is fun!


We know how to have a good time.

It's very similar to working with mortar (which we did last week), but way more satisfying on several levels. First of all, it's faster to mix.


Whee!

Between the nice consistency and the flexible rubber trowel, it goes on smoothly and easily. And it's a finish, so of course it looks really nice as it goes on.

Best of all for me, it's pretty much impossible to screw up. Just slap it on and then wipe off the extra.

I really hope my kindergarten teacher isn't reading this. Sorry, Mrs. Chait.


But it's nothing a damp sponge can't fix!

So, ladies and gentlemen and those who have yet to make up their minds, behold our backsplash:





Hermie is happy, and so are we!

Despite how awesome this looks, I STILL can't use the kitchen. The grout is very vulnerable to stains and splashes until it's sealed, and we have to wait 24 hours for it to set before applying the sealer. Realistically, we probably won't get to that until we get a few days off later in the week. Sigh.

My next task for tonight: figuring out how to make rice in the microwave. Anyone want to go out for dinner this week?
