Over my gardening years plants have come and gone, but a few have proven themselves for the long-haul and get planted in every garden I've had. They include evergreens, flowering shrubs,
and the toughest perennials that truly do come back every year.
These lists of my favorites are not unusual, hard to find, or expensive. I can't justify spending large amounts just to have the newest or most unusual plants. I look for beauty, longevity, and low initial cost all wrapped up in the easiest care possible. And these all fit the bill. They include:
first cleaned the tiles. 2. put grout into places where needed. 3. used latex semi gloss and natural sponge to create the faux finish. 4 covered the tiled area with several coats of
polyurethane (water based ) 5. caught the area around tub. It's holding like a charm, taking showers, splashing water on it and cleaning it. Just make sure the polyurethane is covering EVERY AREA of the tiles.

great idea for tiles! We were having company at our house, and the marble bathroom sink had
become so stained that we did the same technique on marble. So far, it has been great! we will still have to replace the vanity at some point, but for now, we can save our pennies
