We finally got our tile installed this weekend--and I LOVE it. It is really amazing what a little tile will do for a kitchen.
Maybe I should have put the outlet covers back on before I took these pictures!
I ended up using a light grey grout instead of white--the white was whiter than my tile and made it look kind of tan.
My dad came up for the weekend with all his tools to help us. (Thanks Dad!)
The grout was different than any I had used. It was colored with glass rather than dye, so the grout does not need to be sealed and never stains.
I still need to caulk and paint the window and door trim, but I see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
