Glass Tile Back Splash

Below is a 1"x 2" glass tile back splash. The home owner just had new counter tops installed and wanted something simple and modern for the kitchen. I used mastic to install the tile and a bright white grout & caulk to finish it off. Check out the detailed cuts around the window frame. This job was started in May or June but not enough tile was ordered. And what the home owner bought was the last of the supply! So about 80% through the job, it had to be put on hold for the rest of the tile to be ordered. Now, when using tile from two different dye lots, there are always variations in color. This time I think the new tile blended pretty well with the old. The glass has so many reflective properties because it is clear and slightly rounded. So each piece has a different look to it depending on how the light is hitting it. Try to figure out the new from the old. I bet you can't!
