Bathroom Tile Plans
Gargoyle House

So, because we're going to have to have a lot of plumbing work done on the house, in the bathrooms, we figure the tilework is going to get all screwed up, we're going to re-tile the bathrooms after the new sinks and pipes go in. And we have Plans for that tilework. Next week (or this weekend), I'm going to start buying blank tiles by the box, because I am going to paint the tiles that will go on the walls, and design the mosaics that will go on the floors.

The main bathroom, the one between the west bedrooms, has windows flanking the medicine cabinet/mirror. It's rather church-y, and so that will be the Alliance bathroom. Blues and yellows. I am going to put a mosaic on the floor to resemble that linked banner. Blue tiles, maybe gold as well (or maybe those Italian glass tiles with the gold leaf or whatever, shiny...

The bathroom by the serviceporch, the one we'll be fermenting brews in the shower stall, will be the Horde logo - red on black. The walls will be (shiny) black with scattered hand-painted tiles using the icons from the game. I'll be making multiples of the various icons on tiles, to use in both bathrooms. The Alliance bathroom will be blue with yellow grout. The Horde bathroom will be black with red grout. I figure I'll do the various race banners in 2x2 tile sets, and have the icons placed randomly.

My plan is to blog this. This is where I'll be posting photos, ideas, updates. It's going to be all house-based, remodeling, etc.

Funny you should mention that...

From a few hours' reading on WikiHow, Instructables and a couple of DIY sites, I'd come to the conclusion that glazing is the way to go. chronovius had mentioned a public kiln in (Monrovia, I think? I can't recall offhand). THIS is one of the first sites I found regarding tile-glazing, and I was trying to find something similar that wouldn't necessitate a kiln.

Ah, well. Since I want these tiles to last, I'll have to put in the work to make them last, and you and Hroar came up in my brainstorming, as a result.
