I don't know about you, but whenever I have tried to tile anything in the past, I have always wanted it to be straight and neat. I don't try to make it look "home done"...I want the most professional looking results I can get short of hiring someone else to do it.

So explain to me how come the vinyl flooring we buy to put in our bathroom has real looking tile but it is not perfect. It has that "home done" look and apparently that was what they were going for. I don't mind it because it does seem a bit more real that way but I just think that it is funny we would buy an imperfect "picture" of tile but if we were really tiling, we would want it to be perfect.

I commend you on tiling period. D and I did it for the backboard for our woodstove and it was a challenge to say the least, but it turned out beautiful. We have also done some faux brick work and that was fun, but you had more leverage with that project. Yes, it seems the distressed and hand crafted look is in. I like it and it goes with the look of our home so I will incorporate it often.
