Step 1

Stand two countertop trim tiles on end on a flat surface. Apply a thin bead of adhesive caulk on the squared edge of each tile. Then press the squared edge against the inside face of the other tile near the rounded edge. Immediately wipe away any caulk that squeezes out and tape the tiles together.

Good to Know

For a watertight vase, make certain the caulk bead extends the entire length of the tile.

Step 2

Apply a bead of caulk around the bottom ends of the two joined tiles and press the corner bullnose trim tile firmly into the caulk. Wipe away any squeeze-out, and tape the tile in place until the adhesive dries.
