The Trouble with Tile

After years of neglect, the upstairs guest bathroom and main-floor powder room are in horrible shape. But underneath the grime is valuable ceramic tile, antique fixtures and unique character you just can't buy. Nicole Curtis is determined to save everything she can, but it won't be easy. She needs to figure out how to patch the damaged spots with new tile that blends in with the aged color and texture of the original tile. While starting from scratch with all new materials might be easier, Nicole sticks to her restoration plan and stays true to the original vision for this one-of-a-kind home. She rebuilds a classic built-in medicine cabinet, re-glazes and polishes a Victorian sink and digs up vintage sink legs to replace a circa-1980 vanity trashing up the otherwise quaint powder room. With a little creativity, ingenuity and a lot of elbow grease, Nicole makes her turn-of-the-century bathrooms shine like new.
