Well I've caught up on my blog posting because we just finished this project today. It took us FOREVER to find a backsplash tile that worked with the colors in the floor tile and that we both liked. So here it is and we did it ourselves. We're very proud and if you can squint your eyes and overlook the nicotine colored cabinets, you can see the beach house vibe we were going for.
Cabinet painting will not happen until September as we have too much fun, and family/friends visiting planned over the next 4 months to disrupt the functioning kitchen till then. In case anyone is wondering we used Clayhaus tile that is handmade in Oregon. We couldn't be happier with their product and the color we used is called Steel. Pretty gutsy of us to do our first tiling project with an expensive tile, but that's how we roll.
