Good Job! VERY Aggressive for a first time job. You actually attempted the diagonal pattern WITH borders, and pulled it off! :clap: My hat is off to you. :partyhat:

Nice job Dave! Alot of satisfaction from doing it yourself, and look at all the money you saved by not hiring a contractor. Man I wish I could do such nice work but my knees don't let me. How are yours holding up? :) Scott

Yeah, I can tell you did ALOT of cutting with that pattern! You should have setup the wet saw right there, or in a room alongside the bath. Just spread out a clean tarp to catch the spray and tiles pieces. I hate going outside to cut tiles during the winter. Gotta make sure the water in the saw is warm enuf not to freeze. :D
