A small tiling project to prevent the wall from getting wet also created an attractive finish.

The project

 

I tried my hand at tiling our laundry splashback around the sink area to ensure the walls stay dry and for compliance purposes.

 

This was a job I put off for a while, but after a quick trip to Bunnings, less than $100 and a great instructional video from the Bunnings team, I had this splashback completed surprisingly fast.

Applied Selleys No More Gaps between the tiles and the benchtop.

What I loved most was the pre-mixed tile adhesive and the pre-mixed grout in a tube. These products sped the job up so much.
