Default Getting around outlets when installing mosaic tiles

This article could be very useful when installing a backsplash. I hope you enjoy it.

mariarezende : If you weren't spamming, please except my apoligy and welcome to the site. Those little tile can be a ------ to cut to fit, and that site didn't show a spacer that should go behind the outlet to hold it out at the thickness of the tile.
