The real before was peeling splintery wooden slats. Ick. This is the oops! I forgot to take a before pic pic.
ooooooooohhhhhhh.... and the after! The tile floor is recycled from a job that roomie did. It was a kitchen floor that was about to hit the dumpster and he just couldn't stand the waste. The light colored stone is the perfect floor for our poolside living room. He chipped away the old grout and lay the tile over the course of two days. Love his ingenuity!
