Although I had envisioned subway tiles for our backsplash, I recently began rethinking that. Because of time, effort and cost.... I had begun to think maybe a tin tile backsplash was a better option. It would certainly be much quicker and much easier than having to figure out how to tile, buy tile saw, etc. Our bathroom tile job still has a few "imperfections" and I like perfection! So, we just went for it! Well, I will give credit where credit is due. The husband did it.... I was napping!
We have a Royal Barry Wills colonial, so I figured the tin tile worked with the style/vintage of the house and thought what the hell. Since you just glue up the tiles, it is fairly non-committal, so if I want to tile a few years from now I can just rip down the tin and hire me a professional tiler. Also, it was very affordable. Our kitchen is not huge, so we did the entire backsplash for around $100. The husband completed the whole thing in around two hours. I have to say I really love it. I think I love it more than I would have the subway tiles. It adds nice contract to the newly painted cabinets and just kind of looks expensive!
What is left to do in the kitchen? I still need to repaint window trim brigher white. I need to find or make pillows for the banquette benches. I want to make some window treatments. And, most importantly we need to find or make a pedestal or trestle table. What good is a breakfast nook without a table! Stay tuned!
Until next time....xoxo
