I like subway tiles. I know they have been done to death, but I like them. Unfortunately I can’t fork out the cash for the real thing (with its delightful grainy crackle) but I figured I could work with what I had to create a monochrome tiley delight. And it was easier than I thought. The original tiles were simple white with white(ish) grout. I bought a black grout pen (I ordered it from the interwebs for about ten bucks) and I simply ‘coloured in’ the grout. It was like being a kid again, but this time it didn’t matter if I went outside the lines because, by some crazy miracle, the grout paint simply wiped off the tiles and stayed put on the grout.
