I have one walls (accent wall) thats going to be a darker tan. The other walls are blue which accent everything and lighten the room.

Not too terribly bad. Did you have to hurry and get the tiles on before the mortar (I forgot the term earlier, hence the glue,lol) dried, or were you able to take your time on it?

I was patient and did 3 rows at a time. Keep the mortar in the bucket with a moist rag on top of it keeps it from not setting up.

No problem dude! Gimme a shout any time you need help on anything renovation related, I should be able to help you. My old man was a contractor for 30 years and he's shown me how to do most of what he knows.
