I decided this weekend to tackle a project that I have been putting off for far too long. I bought all the materials well before Christmas but was reluctant to start the project since it would be my first home renovation project that I would be doing all on my own.
The Project: Kitchen Back Splash
When I first moved into this house one of the major eye sores was the kitchen back splash. For some reason, the previous owner had a basic tile back splash which would have been fine if she hadn't PAINTED OVER THE TILE with a weird textured stone paint. Who does that?!? It was terrible.
Last year I finally updated the counter top and sink (with some help from my super handy step dad) but I was struggling with the hideous back splash. I don't have a big budget and so many of the options I love are a little too expensive.
Eventually, I came across a product that both fit the budget and looked beautiful - faux pressed tin panels in a beautiful copper colour. Brilliant. I was able to install the panels over the existing awful painted tile. It was actually fairly simple and I am proud to say I did the entire project myself. Sure, it's not perfect but it looks so much better than it did before.
