I will probably get to work on this later this week. Have several other projects going on right now and dont want to start another one just yet.
Will post back how I did.
What Havusa said is right - including the part about grouting not being particularly difficult.
I'd add a couple things...
First, I kind of like the grout to be a little "wetter" than peanut butter consistency. It's a personal preference, and you don't want it to be too watery, but I like it to go on easily. *For cost reasons, I'd suggest you don't bother getting pre-mixed grout. Just get the powder in the bag.
Second, when applying the grout, go over it several times to make sure it is thoroughly worked in to all the areas. Don't skimp on the amount of grout you're applying, because you just wipe off the excess anyway.
Third, Havusa is spot-on regarding what you apply it with. I usually use a grout trowel, but I often just use my hands. I'm not sure why, but sometimes it seems like I can get it on better with my bare hands.
Mostly though, don't worry. You're already asking the right questions. Applying grout isn't rocket science. Just take your time & enjoy it.
