Vintage Crafty Saturdays – Fitting Vintage Tile

Thanks for the great post, Jan!  I always wondered about how to cut vintage tile!

Since I’m not very crafty and I always need help figuring out something, I thought I’d share this tidbit about cutting ceramic tile.

I’m about to convince my husband, Bob, to re-tile our pink bathroom (it really needs it) and I want to be well versed in the topic!

I bought this booklet on Ebay and it was put out in 1966.  This booklet actually is a lot more helpful than the do-it-yourself videos online.

My problem is how to cut tile to fit around the faucets.  Here is the directions and a photo of it.

LOL, don’t know why the tiles showed up in multi-colors!

Hope this bit of information helps those of us who are construction challenged.
