Next up… project backsplash!
I’m not sure exactly what happened, but one day I woke up and looked around and thought… I’m always so busy and putting stuff on hold that I’ve been leaving things as they are in my house instead of really making them my way. Then I decided that slowly but surely I want to get some projects done, no matter how I have to find the time.
Okay, so on Sunday I showed you some of the work I’m trying to do in my office to make it into my dream space, but the magnitude of that project is kind of overwhelming. In the meantime, Angie’s list had a great deal on tilework that I want to take advantage of to install a kitchen backsplash. This is fun! I’ve been wanting to do this since we built our house seven years ago but just haven’t gotten around to it. No more procrastination! I got a few samples yesterday at lunchtime and a ton more are going to be delivered over the next few days. But as worried as I was in the showroom that I wasn’t picking off the top of my head something that would blend our natural wood cabinets and floor with the black and tan countertop and the stainless steel appliances we’d someday (can’t justify it until the current ones break and they’re still going strong!) like to have, I actually liked a few of the ones I got so…
What do you think? Have a favorite? Any that make you shudder and say, “No way! Don’t do that!”?
PS… please ignore my cluttered kitchen, these pictures made me realize I need to streamline!
If I had to choose right now I’d pick this last one. I love how the glass is cracked looking inside and gives it an extra sparkle that doesn’t really pick up in the pictures but makes the under cabinet area look brighter in real life. So what do you think?
