A beautiful copper glass and venetian stone combo. Pretty right?
At this point we were just getting started because now we had to decide what design we wanted to do. There are lots of possible combinations when you have 4 in and 3/4 in tiles to work with. After lots of suggestions and tons of pro and con discussions. We chose to put the tile on the bias and cut out a square for four of the copper tiles. Here is what it looks like before the grout.
Then we decided to do a little something different over the stove.
When we got the grout over the tile, I wasn't too sure the tile wouldn't be ruined. It was a little intimidating to see it all covered in black. Those stone pieces were pretty light in color.
So we started scrubbing.
It looks like a hot mess, but it really was pretty manageable. When we finished scrubbing this is what we had.
I absolutely adore the new back splash and think it ties in beautifully with the counter top and black cabinets. I would say the black grout experiment was a success!!! So what do you think? Would you or have you used it in your home?
