Things I Can Do

I live in a crappin' old house. And since I have a hard time stomaching the sight of my mother eating plastic and singing to imaginary animals, I find stuff to do. Most recently, I learned how to tile. I went to Home Depot and bought some stuff and just did it. My shower had started to flood the bathroom anytime anyone other than I showered. So to avoid user error and clean up potentially hazardous mildew, here is what I did:

1. Remove old, black, poisonous, termite-filled tile and wood:

2. Put in new wood and mortar:

3. Apply new tile:

4. Apply grout (color: Haystack):

5. Clean tile and apply grout sealant:

6. Allow to cure for 48 hours before using shower:

Done! Before and after:

Next project: Build an office.


  1. U rock...I am about to do a Bobby Flay throwdown with some home improvments in my crumbling down casa. :)
