Kitchen backsplash done

Well, it's about 99% done. Still some touch-ups here and there, but that's it. Here are the results...

This was my first tiling job and I learned a lot of lessons. First, I now have a new appreciation for people who charge big bucks for this stuff. It is hard work, tedious, labor intensive and it takes many, many hours. Second, buy tile from a reputable place, get samples and overestimate (like 10% or more) how much you will need. Third, unless you are proficient at this, don't think this is something you can knock out in a day. All told this was probably about 20 hours broken up into 4 days.

Still a few other things to do in the kitchen, but the big stuff is done now. I'm very pleased with the results and people who have seen it so far are impressed.
