|Prepping the walls for some tile love.|
I considered the period of the house (1950), along with colors of my kitchen before deciding on a white subway tile. Little did I know, white subway tile just happens to be vogue at the moment. I guess the perk of choosing something trendy is that there are a million different online tutorials, which I needed since this was do-it-yerself. White subway tile is also an inoffensive color, so even in 20 years I hope it will still look great (as opposed to something like electric-blue glass tile).
I used the 22 cent tiles from Home Depot. That's right: 22 cents per tile. Easy on the wallet.

Tiling was really fun. It was super messy, which I love.
I took my time and laid it all out carefully, measuring and cutting and placing each tile one at a time. I got in a sort of zen space while working on it. I like it so much that I'm going to tile the floor and shower stall in our new basement bathroom.
