DIY backsplash

Kitchen Backsplash: Complete!

We have many many home projects on our wish list for this year. I am excited to say that one is done!

If you remember, about a month ago I mentioned that I was trying to figure out where to stop and start our marble backsplash. We decided to end it at the countertop and I am so glad that we did.


Here’s a few process pictures, I won’t bore you with a step by step tutorial since there are so many out there already that would be better than mine.

Instead of using a traditional tile bullnose or trim piece (left picture) to give a finished edge to the tile (like originally planned), we opted for a thin metal band (right picture) to keep a clean and crisp look.

What do ya think? Greg did a great job laying the tile! It only took about a week’s worth of nights to lay the tile and a Saturday morning to grout and clean up! Please don’t be afraid to ask if you have any questions!

How are your to-dos coming along this year?
