Home improvement

14 02 2012

I haven’t been crafting much this week since we’ve been busy around the house. We live in a 140 year old house that constantly needs something fixed. It’s endless.

This week we tackled the entry mat. The house has an inset in the wood flooring. It had a grungy black walk off mat in there. It was probably as old as me.

We pulled out the mat, laid down some tile backer board & installed a slate mosaic tile.

After all the curing & grout setting time here is the finished product. 1000% improvement.

Tonight we drain & flush our hot water heater. The glamour never ends!!

probably because it’s always experienced at the same time as a complete Dante meltdown. HA!
