How to backbutter tile

Just in case you were curious about backbuttering tile - or back buttering tile, since I'm not sure if backbutter is one word or two, as in "back butter" - take a look. Don't worry, it's only a minute and a half, and the old Italian guy is pretty fun to watch.

This is going to be my Sunday activity (and probably my Monday, too), which is why I'm posting this instead of writing.

  1. Thank you, thank you! I'm DIY handygal. I watched several of the clips. Learned a lot. I've always wanted to try to lay tile but have been too chicken. Hmmm, it didn't look that hard.

  2. Ooooh... backbuttering!!!! We put glass tiles in our old house and they were beeyootiful! You will just love how they bling up your kitchen. And never doubt the importance of backbuttering... makes everything look bubble free, seamless and professional.
    But you already knew that! Pls. show pictures of the results!
