DIY: Mosaic Tile Fireplace Project!

I highly recommend attending your area's FREE Do-it-Yourself classes for home improvement projects!  Save $ on the cost of labor...while learning a new skill!

Almost a year ago, my husband and I decided to take on the challenge of re-tiling our fireplace surround. With this project, we had to remove the existing tile (& drywall), replace the drywall with cement board, and then, get to the tiling part of the project. It was quite a job, & we were pretty nervous about taking this project on...but we're really enjoying the results!

Before attempting this first tiling project, we attended a FREE tiling class at Home Depot. The class helped answer many of our questions & was inspiring!
We even went on to complete a second, larger, Slate Kitchen Backsplash Tile Project the same year!...and thanks to a recent Tile Shop Groupon, we have a third backsplash tile project in the works, too!
