Eye Candy: 6 Incredible Mosaic Kitchen Backsplashes

Bits of china and tile have never looked so beautiful. Here are six mosaic backsplashes that just might make you start breaking dishes. Opa!

Alexandra's mosaic creation, pictured above, is more art piece than backsplash.

Marisa chose to use black grout in her backsplash.    

Check these next two out from Therese Dejardin Studio. 

I adore the sweet contemporary pattern of this one, which relied on a tile cutter rather than a hammer for its creation:

And, finally, Ginger's Major Mosaic Kitchen Makeover posted right here on Curbly a few weeks back, which is so beautiful it needed another shout out.

It was some work to make the beautiful backsplash wall with the dollar store plates.  However, in about 5 hours of intense work, my sister-n-law now has an amazing kitchen wall that is by far the most talked about and admired pieces in her beautiful home.  It was "a lot of work" as someone expressed, but she loves it and most DIY projects require  work!  She certainly has reaped an excessive reward for her little bit of hard work. Sometimes money can't buy what our own sweat and ingenuity can produce!!

Talk about a labor of love. Simply amazing. Another 'some day' project that has made it to the top of my list and I can't wait. I wonder about the cleaning? Do they hold up to a lot of cooking and splatter?

Years ago my sister-on-law saw this type of thing in a magazine.  She went to the dollar store and bought the 1.00 plates that had the colors she wanted, took them home and put them in old pillow classes and smashed them with a hammer.  Then she used the mortar and placed each piece as she worked...It was work!  But it is beautiful and probably receives more compliments than just about any area of her home (and that is saying something!!)  It is beautiful!!  This unique wall became a work of art!!
