Adding a decorative glass & stone tile border as shown is an easy project with stunning results that you can do inexpensively. This project only cost me $50. I'll show you how!

WOW! Adding a glass & stone tile boarder in an afternoon and inexpensive? uh, NO!
It is indeed beautiful, and makes a statement, but the cheapest is $5+ per sq ft, and the pretty stuff (yes that'd be the glass & stone mosaic) is NOT "cheap" - just installed a killer backsplash and 1 sq foot of this type tile is $9/sqft if you are color blind- but the good looking stuff runs (mid-line) $12-$15 and some go as high as $30. Not Cheap, Not Easy, absolutely can not be completed in an afternoon (not correctly any way) The backing the 1"x1" (by pix above) has 1/16" space that needs 1/6" spacers on all 4 sides of everytile (12 rows of 12 tiles per sheet with like a kazillion itty bitty spacers) Takes TONS OF TIME! Then once its on the wall, 24 hours dry time, then the grout game- Smoosh it in said tiny lines, then wipe them off 3-7 times- carefully so as not to pull out what you want! Then 48-72 hours dry time before it can be sealed and caulked. I'd be pretty amazed if ANYONE could complete a boarder in the bath pix above in an afternoon!!! NO WAY!
