Just going to show you a few pictures and give you a quick update on the project.
First, is this what it has come to? To be called a project?
I don't know why I said that.
A project, it sounds like something like something I should be doing for science class.
Well, it almost is just that, something for science class.
If you recall we made these huge concrete slabs and broke them apart and I have spent time acid staining the pieces, some of which are small and others medium and then, some are quite large.
If you have never acid stained, then you should. Everyone should, at least once in their lives.
It is an incredibly artistic and scientific process.
We buy our acid stain in Phoenix, several different colors and then we mix it according to a formula of colors that we have worked out.
I have a work area in the back yard, away from all the plants and with foam brushes, I coat the concrete pieces in layers and drops and streaks and rubs.
The acid stain bubbles and smokes and actually creates its own patterns.
Then the pieces all get layered with polyurethene.
It is pretty unique.
You just cannot drop it on your shoe or a shirt or get it on your fingers.
It really is acid.
So, finally we have begun to install the floor.
It is not grouted yet, and not cleaned so these pictures really are not showing you how beautiful this floor will look, but I thought you might like to see how it looks in its beginning stages.
Senor has chosen to mix his own grout using an almost black paint powder.
He will start the grouting next week.
The concrete slab beneath the window is where the counter and sink will go.
He had to change all of the plumbing and the electricity after I decided to put this counter in a different location.
I think it will look really nice beneath the window, don't you?
Well, that is about it for now.
This is a beautiful project.
Que le vaya bien!
