My ventless gas fireplace has bland cream colored brick on the inside of the firebox. I would like to cover the brick with porcelain tile, which is supposed to be heat resistant. Has anyone tiled the inside of their firebox? Suggestions?
I have many pretty photos of animals and scenes, as these are my own photos I would like to incorporate them into the home decor. I already have many framed and think tiles would be a good option. The end result being a washable surface. I am open to new suggestions of ways to display my photos.

I was given these metal tiles after a store closed down that my friend owned. Apparently, they are some sort of metal tile that go with a floor security sensor set-up. Each tile is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1/4". They are quite heavy as well. I have approx. 300 of these tiles and was hoping to create something out of them, either individually or in small groups. I think using too many of them on one item will simply make it too heavy. So what do you think? Has anyone came across these before or tried to work with them? Any and all ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated! P.S. I have a welder and can weld, although I'm not sure how it would turn out with these.

I have a plain black laminate countertop in my bathroom that shows just about every drop of water with a nice white ring. I was hoping to do a concrete or tile top but I'd like to keep it cheap by just doing it on top of the existing laminate. Anyone know if this is possible? Thanks!

I'm making gate post finials to look like disco balls (they won't revolve though, mores the pity ;-) Is it possible to use mirrored glass outside without the silver backing clouding up and disintegrating? I could use polished steel mosaics but I can't find any in the UK. Many thanks guys! Michelle

Question by ewcia1028 | last reply
I have installed glass "wavy" tiles around the walls of a bathtub/shower. Each wavy tile is about 2.5" long with a square piece of marble between each glass wave piece. They are arranged on a 12" square sheet of mesh in a basket weave pattern and each of the pieces are butted up next to each other (leaving no room for grout). The person at the tile store told me that I didn't need to grout it. However, given that it is in a bathtub that also used as a shower, I'm thinking it will need to be grouted so water doesn't get up under the tiles and loosen the tiles over time. Three questions: 1) Do you agree that I need to grout?; 2) How do I go about grouting this wavy tile (it is very uneven... the lowest part of the wave of each tile is 1/8" lower than the top of the wave); 3) As an alternate to grout, is there a clear product I can put on it that will seal up the spaces between the tiles without ruining the shiny finish of the glass?

I am having solid hardwood flooring installed in my first floor of my home. The existing flooring is currently 12x12" vinyl tiles. I am in the process of removing the tiles (using an iron). How do I remove the old adhesive that was used to put the tiles down? Is it necessary to remove even though felt underlayment will be placed under the hardwood? Thanks in advance.

I've heard that you can use an unfinished ceramic tile as a pizza stone. I have not been able to find any unfinished ceramic tile anywhere. I figured a bunch of DIY folks like the ones here might know where I can get one. Does anyone know where I can get a 16"x16" unfinished ceramic tile? Thanks Rick

Can I tile over these things without ripping them out? Any tips? The counter is wood veneer and the floor is linoleum tiles that have worn through to what looks like concrete in some spots. I'm pretty handy and I think I can do these things myself with the right tools, but I don't want to make any serious faux pas. I don't think I'm capable of or want to rip up the flooring an counter either. Thanks for your help!
I want to use the tiles for various projects, one of which will be a gazebo floor set into sand.

We installed the tile over a primer. It seems to be bowing up in the center. We weighted it down overnight but it is still not adhered to the floor. Does it just take time? Did we do something wrong?

Question by loree.kaye | last reply
We are tiling around our new tub and about 3/4 of the way up the wall. We have a window that is just off the tub, so the tile will wrap around about half of the window. We aren't sure what the best way to go about this job is. We have the green board moisture-resistant drywall up, and are planning to use a primer and then begin tiling. I need to know the best method for going around the window, which we plan to trim. Would we trim first and then butt the tiles up against the trim? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!
