So, anyway, here’s what we ordered:
5 boxes each of Desert Gray Speckled + Black Speckled
12″ square porcelain tiles,
from Daltile’s Color Scheme collection @ only $2.99 sq. ft.!

(I couldn’t even lift one),
so G.O. used a cart to transport them from his truck to our back door,
5 boxes at a time:

we immediately laid out a few tiles for a look-see:
Hey, look! It’s our new Maytag dishwasher!
Is it wrong that both G.O. are madly in love with that handle?
It’s so chunky! It’s also stainless steel,
which pops so nicely against the white appliance.

Here’s G.O., getting a head start on said-same:
Definitely stay tuned!
