Surf Board Project... ready for grout!

The PieceMaker Surfboard Bench is ready to be grouted! I was going to grout it this past week, but there was only so much that I could get done in a day, so it had to be postponed.

I'm eager to grout it now though... can't wait to see it all come together!

There will only be 3 grout colors on this piece: black for the water, gray for the rocks, and I'm still totally undecided about what color to grout the creatures.

I will touch base with the PieceMakers this morning, and see what they think.
