This is icky, time-consuming work. Planning is the key. Do this in warm, dry weather. Otherwise, the glue never dries. Be careful to spread the glue thin and even. Otherwise, the glue will "leech" out between the cracks between the tiles. Also, if your garage is sheetrocked, but some 4" vinyl 'toe kick' cove molding and suitable mastic glue. After the tile is down. apply the cove molding. Then, where the cove molding meets the tile, run a thin bead of silicon sealer. Now you can wash your garage floor with getting the sheetrock wet.
The most important step is laying out the tiles so they are square with one wall (preferably the longest and straightest one). My garage is only 10 feet by 13 feet and this project took me ALL DAY (and I had help). Always buy more tile than you need. Check the boxes the tile comes in. Be sure you buy ones from the same lot number, otherwise the colors won't match.
