They were moving locations which is why they forgot.

I’m doing a rolled edge spa so putting a bunch of tile around that, inside it and on its face.
Also, using the peacock as the water tile and on benches and stools.
It should look killer!

The primary function of the bar stools will be to watch TV.......
Ahh, ok that makes sense. Obviously my continous bench idea doesnt work at all in that scenerio.
Yours is a design after my own heart...hardly a straight line or hard angle anywhere!

Hey was your pool featured on Pool Kings?? I think I saw it in their intro.
Ha ha, hardly....but it was featured on the liner company's website as a 'pool of the month' last year for our PB, for whatever that's worth.🙄
I often joke with our PB that he was slumming when he did our pool, compared to his usual body of work. He only does 4 to 6 pools a year and rarely uses any subs....all trades are in-house.

Your pool design is gorgeous! I'm very partial to the Lightstreams peacock tile.

I saw your post about using different colors of glass tile on the in-pool bar stools. I hope you do - I love that idea!!

Peacock gonna be used as waterline tile, and inside the spa which has a rolled edge. Also, gonna accent the benches and steps with it and figure out where to put the rest if any is left over. It is the most beautiful tile I’ve ever seen.

Peacock on the spillover and edges. Gonna completely fill the spa with peacock too.
I’ll have a bunch remaining and at trying to figure out where to put the rest.

The tiles go great on the top of tables, benches, and around flower pots! Oh make some "coasters" for drinks to sit on out of them!!

What colors are you thinking of using for the stools?

Ohmy! That's the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen! It's going to just sparkle with water in it! What a brilliant choice. Did you choose that on your own or did someone suggest it?

Look at that spa!! Now I'M speechless. It is truly amazing. Imo, you get the best out of Lightstreams tile on horizontal surfaces that are underwater. You have nailed it with the spa. I have the same tile on my spa benches. After 4 years, I still oooo and awww every time I see the sun hitting the spa benches. There's nothing like it. You may want to wear sunglasses the first few times you look at it. It's that dazzling! Bravo! :party:

I chose the tile on my own. My permit took 6 months so it gave me time to research online (otherwise I would have gone with the standard builder suggestion and not known any better).
Not sure how I found lightstreams but I did and when I saw the site I knew I wanted the peacock—I actually wanted a lot of them but liked peacock best.
People complain about lightstreams but I have gotten to know the owner, David, very well and after the 1st glitch he now fills my orders in 1 week.
