Basketweave bathroom floor: TINY mosaic pieces that were so difficult to cut and annoying to lay to make sure every piece was on the same level.
Glass subway tile: made us buy a new blade for the tile saw and has no beveled edges so the face is completely flat, therefor if any piece sticks out even 1/16th of an inch more you can tell and it looks like poop.
Glass mosaic backsplash: crackle glass with some sort of epoxy over it. If you don't cut SUPER slow the crackle glass cracks all over the place and the line looks terrible. The glass is also sitting on a layer of some sort of thinset product already and the tile saw gets REALLY mad about cutting through two different materials and will kick back sometimes. It is a FUCKING BITCH to cut
Why oh why do we pick the most difficult tile to install?
Once we figured out how the hell to cut it without the tile saw exploding, we got to work.
The good news: it goes up a lot faster than both the basketweave and the subway, woo-hoo!
We got a bit on the opposite wall as well, but only two sheets, so it's rather unexciting. Hopefully soon I'll be able to share that WHOLE wall :)
