diy backsplashPosted: July 6, 2011
Here’s how it went:
House Hunting. See a kitchen with a glass tile backsplash. It was bright and bold and beautiful and I wanted to buy the house for that reason alone. Obsess about it. End up buying a different house. It doesn’t have a backsplash. Love the new house, especially the kitchen. Still obsessed about backsplashes. Decide to save up some money and have one put in.
Many months later:
Happy hour with our friends the Sloans. Backsplash talk. Early morning Lowe’s run to buy some odds and ends. See this:
Buy it. Spend Sunday DIY-ing our tile backsplash. Realize we are not handy. Grouting is hard. Learn that they write the directions the way they write them for a reason. Decide, “Oh well it looks fine” on countless occasions throughout the day. Step back. Kind of far. LOVE.
We have decided that we wouldn’t do it again. It was pretty messy and a little tricky. We are so happy that we did it.
