    I have had the tile to re-do my fireplace for months but haven't go around to doing it myself. My son and his friend came over today and did it! It's 1" glass tiles and it so pretty! Way better than the white tile that was there originally that stuck out like a sore thumb.

    It still needs to be grouted after the mortar sets for a day but I can do that.

    It looks so much better in person. The color isn't quite right in the evening with a flash, as you can tell by the wall color difference.

    I've been wanting to do this for a long time and happy it's done!

    I have a medium tan grout. It's just in the middle range of the tile colors. Not too dark or light so the grout lines aren't what you notice most.

    Great job!!!!! We used a similar tile (DAL, right?) for our backsplash in the kitchen. Yours was a contender for a bit but went with a softer look instead.

    Oh yeah, I totally agree the glass tiles are much better - the picture above the fireplace is a perfect match. And the light will reflect off the glass tiles so nicely.

    I've wanted to do the same tiles in my kitchen, you see it all the time on the HGTV shows.

    What a huge difference in your living room!

    I don't recall what brand the tile is. I looked at several and decided on this one. It's not totally taste specific like a bright blue or something and it went with my decor anyway. There is white tile countertops in the kitchen that I want to change to granite someday and this could go on the backsplash also.

    I watch HGTV a lot. I love to decorate too.
