We just recently discovered tiling (we were too chicken to do it before) and now we are hooked! We tiled our kitchen back splash and loved it so much that we decided to do a fireplace remodel. One day my husband said that he saw a fireplace with mosaic tile on it and really liked it and after he said that there was no turning back. I’m the one that usually has to push for the projects, so I always jump on when he wants to do something! It was actually really easy to do and it only took us about 24 hours to finish. For a full tutorial on how to tile, check out my post here.
So here is the process of the tiling. We actually just tiled directly onto the other tile. We started in the middle and worked our way out. We also used the sticky mat again (instead of cement). Then we grouted it and sealed it like you normal do. We got the sticky mat at Home Depot.
Because the tan tiles ending up clashing with the mosaic tiles, we replaced them with a nice light gray. We did it when we installed our hardwood floors.

Question for ya, are your components (dvd/blu ray/cable box) in the white plastic bins under the tv?
I am considering putting my TV over the fireplace and am looking for ideas for the components and tiling the fireplace 🙂
