Kitchen: Tiling the backsplash

After finishing the plumbing and electrical, installing the cabinets & countertops, etc… It was time to hit the backsplash.

 

Now I love the look of glass tile, but not the price.  I really didn’t want to put several hundred dollars into the backsplash.

 

Here’s the upside though.. I do love the tumbled stone look too.  Especially in combination with glass tile.  So this is what we did….

The ivory 6×6 tiles looked just like tumbled stone.  It was very affordable.  I’ve used this tile several times and love it.  Unfortunately Menards stopped carrying it.  Boo!

Then we cut the 12×12 glass tile pieces into 3 strips, giving us 4 inch strips of glass tile.

Really really love how it turned out!!!  Pretty affordable too!  I’ll take that!  😉
