Kitchen Backsplash Reveal

Let’s Recap:

1. Last week I disclosed how I have never been in l.o.v.e with our kitchen, hence the lack of attention this room gets here on the blog. I have always wished it was brighter, whiter and was never head-over-heels with the kitchen since we moved in.

2. I shared my plan to DIY a backsplash with the help of my amazing dad– a project that neither of us had ever done.

3. Today, I’m back to share the kitchen backsplash reveal and a newfound sense of kitchen excitement. This backsplash has almost inspired me to try my hand at cooking a meal or two. kitchenTa-daa! I plan on dishing what I learned throughout my first-ever backsplash DIY project tomorrow. For now, I’ll leave you with pretty pictures, a source list, and a few more items on our kitchen to-do list.

kitchen backsplashFor now, I love the new look and completing this project has totally inspired me to keep the weekend warrior projects coming! I want to keep this DIY train rolling right into the dining room.  Plus, I have my eyes peeled for some budget friendly bar stools that are fabric and more neutral. I think that’ll be the perfect way to continue to brighten the space. If you see any…. let me know! More dirty details tomorrow (like holy dusty, dirty is an UNDERSTATEMENT for this tile project). See you then!

    Looks beautiful! I especially like the slight marbling going on in the tiles. We will be renovating our kitchen sometime in the future, and I’ll be interested to see how you did your backsplash since that’s on our list too.

    • Thanks Laura! I hope I can provide you with a few valuable tips tomorrow. =)

  • Alysia @ Slim Sanity

    I love it!! It looks awesome. Can’t wait until we can redo ours!

  • That looks awesome! Congratulations on surviving your first tile job!

  • This looks awesome- good for you for taking on a project like this even though you’ve never done it. You give people like me hope (I get intimidated by projects like this but it looks so great- it’s inspiring!)
