Lots of swearing trying to tile into that back corner. Being short sucks sometimes.

You Canadians. Everything has to be puck-related.

Can't you just say "under-counter lighting" like everyone else? smile

Nahhh...they're puck lights...people who say "under-counter lighting" can go puck themselves.

Sean, is that a metal roof on your shed?

I also really like the crossed-tassel motif on your microwave's door.

Shine one, Sean, shine on.

I noted the tassels also, but thought they were Canadian Strip Club souvenirs.

Its what they're called here. laugh I think Orr invented them, but Gretzky perfected them. Then Crosby improved on perfection.....

Looks beautiful, Shawn!

I did a similar glass tile mosaic backsplash in our kitchen some years ago. Glad I did the epoxy grout, but "never again". I'll confidently wager that your work is qualitatively better than mine, as I reach "close enough" too rapidly some days.

Cheers!

Seriously, try this. If you scroll up and down this thread quickly, it looks like Sean is hovering.

Now, get a Wint-o-green Lifesaver and go into the bathroom and turn off the light. Then...

Sean, it's OK, it worked out this time. However, the next time your wife spreads out sheet plastic, then asks you to lay on it, I'd be really suspicious.

We should have a meme contest for your pic. Now matter how awkward your position, the reflektion [sic] in the microwave IS the subject of that photo.

I know we no longer acknowledge such things, but Mark and Adrian---good puck punning.

Sean, you should take the exact same photo naked. But either make sure your wife is NOT home, or she doesn't insist on the sheet plastic thingy. Then quickly scrolling by your pink body in such dark surroundings would be hysterical.

I'm gonna repost your pic in the middle of a thread for a better effect.

We need a few more posts to get your image in the middle.

I didn't read that as an "a", but an "i". But maybe that's because my joke was already heading in that direction.

I just completely redid my kitchen in the spring and went with a real mother of pearl backsplash, and absolutely love it. I designed the entire kitchen (yes..... everything) myself.







Added this cupboard section in the dining area.



Bought this manly bachelor faucet on Amazon.



Mother of pearl backsplash flowing wonderfully with my Cambria quartz countertop.



Corner pullout system I found online.

I'll bet those 3 white chairs are effen glued to the wall so, whenever you have guests for dinner, only you get to sit down.
