You may wonder how, if I was two tiles short, I actually managed to finish the floor at all, and the answer would be here…
Instead of continuing the tile into the small closet, I used scrap wood flooring similar to the master closet to save myself a few tiles. It meant going through the same process of gluing and nailing the floor as the bedroom.
But in a much smaller space.
It was an awesome hour of my life. But, you know, all closet work eventually comes to an end.
Since the tile floor was even with the wood floor in the closets and bedroom, I decided not to use a threshold and just grout between the two floors. I used a little painters tape to protect the wood, and it worked out well.
And after hours of mud, and sponging, and wiping down the floor on my hands and knees (more on grouting floor tile here), I finally, finally have a finished floor.
So that’s the good news. The bad news is that I have an absolute disaster going on with the concrete counters but I’ll save photographic evidence of the mistake I made there for a later date. Like tomorrow. (Cliffhanger: It also includes blood!)
