Hello again :)
This week's post is about my stone wall. I've wanted a stone wall for a looooooooong time. I love the look and texture rough stacked stone brings. I've gone to a billion stone places the past 5 months trying to find an option that was the right color and in my budget. Finding the right color was easy...finding the right price was NOT! Everyone wanted around $20 a square foot, i did not want $20 a square foot. Luckily, I found a stone place that was completely incompetent and they misquoted me by a lot, and then they tried to take it back, but i complained. I called the distributor and after lots of back and forth, they agree to give me a wholesale price of $12 a square foot if i paid cash. Shaaady BUT i got my stone :)
A family friend of ours does a lot of stone and tile work so i gave him a call to help me out. I paid a lot for the stone and i wanted it to be perfect...plus i dont have the right kind of saw to cut the tiles. Mike came and helped me out :) this is the adhesive he used. You can find it here i did a little bit of research and this isn't the best option for flooring due to the fact that it takes 5 days to fully dry, however, since nobody is walking on my walls, its' perfect :) it's premixed so just open it and use it.
I watched mike work hard on my wall and i took photos of the process for those of you who are more confident than me.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out! it looks even more amazing in person :) Let me know what you guys think, i always love your feedback! and as always, if you have an questions leave me a comment with your email address and i'll get back to you as soon as i can :)
