The Kitchen Backsplash Reveal...
Have you ever done a project and wondered 'why didn't I do this sooner?' That's me with this back splash. We have been casually talking about it for a couple of years and seriously since October. We bought 2 samples of what we wanted back then. But I wasn't quite ready to commit. Why didn't I want to commit? Well, we have very little wall space in our kitchen and I was worried about having even less room to hang things. And the tile is going to be there for a long, long time! What if I don't like it?? But I shouldn't have worried too much since the back splash makes the room look so much brighter and bigger. Frankly, I don't care about hanging things when something looks this good! I can't believe how much that brown paint sucked the light out of the room. Even when we had the lights on.
I put the Cuisinart in a cabinet and my husband wanted me to put the Kitchen Aid mixer in there too. I decided against that since it's a high cabinet and they weigh alot. I can just see him coming home and finding me on the floor with a mixer on my head! So the mixer stays out.
We are super happy with the way this turned out. So I guess I would say that if you want a new look don't be afraid. Go with your instincts. If it feels right, go for it. If not, keep looking until it does feel right. Don't be afraid to commit. Chances are it's going to look great!
