My most recent kitchen remodel

Here’s the before….  this kitchen had tile countertops.  It’s not the worst thing in the world, but compared to the rest of the house, it was a bit out of place.

After:  We had granite installed, and I tiled the backsplash.

(Ignore the already kid-ified fridge.)

This backsplash tile has a bit of a story…  it is the “Instant Mosaic” tile from Lowe’s.  When I saw it in the store, I thought, ‘Peel and stick tile?!  Isn’t that a little ghetto?  There’s no way that could work.  Who would buy something like that?!?’  But I kept coming back to it.  The promise of easy was too alluring to resist.  And here we are.  It really was ridiculously easy to work with.  It cuts well with a tile saw, and it looks great installed.  Make sure you’re starting off with a very flat wall, though.  I had some spots that I had patched after demoing the previous tile, and that was a bit tricky to work around.

Anyway…  I was pleased.

And I’m glad to be done!
