My tiling project in the kitchen that cost less than $95.00 and one weekend opens up all sorts of new decorating possibilities. Constrained by the in-your-face handpainted tiles of a decade ago, there was limited flexibility in color choices.

I even feel a little smug that I'm living with my less-than-beloved painted white cabinets as a testament to my commitment to improve, rather than throw away. For a reminder of BEFORE, click here.
