Here is how it looks now and the tape shows where the wall will go. My tape line isn't straight but it was to just give me a visual so I could make sure it was what I really wanted to do!
The area is about 5 1/2 foot wide by 12 foot long.
Here's the tile we picked out.
I wanted to do a pinwheel pattern after we worked on a clients kitchen and eat in area. I loved the look. So we picked up some 12x12 inch tiles and some 6x6 inch tiles. They were very inexpensive at Lowes. At first I wanted the real slate tiles they carried but I didn't like how those tiles were falling apart just looking at them in the store!
This is what the pattern looked like in our clients home.
