Fireplace "Tile"

Say what?! I'm blogging? I know, unbelievable and about freaking time. My summer got away from me, I've been having a great time vacationing but I also have been working a ton as well so needless to say it's been hard to finish projects! I currently have 2 half re-upholstered chairs sitting in the dining area that have been sorely neglected! I'm hoping though to get those done by next weekend...
And I greatly appreciate Lauren picking up my slack!

Now onto the a project!

Isn't this tile so pretty?

Well, it's wasn't always that way. Here it is, and it's not that bad, but as I've said in the past I am a tile snob (because I work at a tile store helping people design their kitchens and baths and pools and whatever else fun stuff they need) and I was having a hard time decorating because the peachy color of  this tile always threw everything off.

BUT I don't own this house so I can't just tear it out or tile over or even paint over. I had to do something non-permanent.....
Well I've seen people put sayings on tile with vinyl so why not graphics?
So using my Sihouette I cut out these damask decals, if you will, to a little less then the size of the tile.
And Applied!

Turned out great! People who have seen it before asked if we re-tiled, when I tell them "NO, it's vinyl" They're shocked! So, I guess you'd say that's a success!
