How to Apply Pebble Tile on a Wall
DIY Network shows you how to install pebble tile on a bathroom wall.
Remove old vanity countertop and sinks.
Using 2x4s and a drill, attach four boards to the top of the vanity (two in the back, two in the front) to create the base/frame of the countertop (Image 1). Attach the last 2x4 to the front of the other boards to create a lip for the countertop (Image 2).
Cut a piece of backer board to size and attach to the top of the 2x4s with a strip screw gun.
When the countertop is formed, cut a hole(or holes) where you want the sink(s) to be.
Spread thinset with a trowel on one half of the countertop (Image 1) and set sheets of travertine tile over the area (Image 2).
Tile the countertop in sections so that the thinset won’t dry while you're laying out the mosaic glass pieces.
Using a utility knife, cut out the tile where the sink holes are.
Working quickly so thinset does not dry, lay out the glass mosaic tiles over the travertine in desired pattern.
Once the mosaic tiles are placed, cut out individual travertine pieces with a utility knife.
Back-butter mosaic tiles with thinset and place into open spaces.
Once all mosaic pieces are set in that section, lay more thinset on the other half of the countertop and continue the process.
Once all tiles are set, let dry, then grout over the entire top and sides of countertop. Wipe countertops clean with a wet sponge.
