    My sister has been wanting this foyer finished for several years, ever since I built the porch. She told me that she had a bunch of random tile, which she had picked up from wherever, and to do what I could, with it.

    She only requested that I use the centerpiece. Everything else was up to me.

    Here's the end result.

    Yeah, she did pay me for the work, so it wasn't exactly, a full fledged present.

    The Watchdog is her artwork.

    That is amazing. You did a beautiful job.
    Love the Watchdog, as well.
    You must come from a very artistic family. [​IMG]

    ummm... how far away exactly is middleburg from Ocala?
    Do you barter?
    I'm just kidding. It would hurt my husband's feelings.
    (But one day MY utility room will get finished. I am pretty sure...i think.)

    You did a fabulous job with the odds and ends tile. One would think it had been the master plan.
