A tile backsplash is a quick and easy way to update your kitchen. Steve Watson starts with a list of needed materials and tools for this 2-day project. He then walks you through the six basic steps to installing a tile backsplash: 1) Spread mastic on wall. 2) Place tile where you want it to be, cutting around outlets and windows. 3) Allow the tile to dry on the wall. 4) Mix up grout to cake batter consistency. 5) Spread grout on tile, using your trowel. 6) Let it dry and then clean with a wet sponge.
