I'm on a really tight budget. I'm talking tight. So I had to get creative. I did an aluminum. Foil back splash. It looks fantastic. I get so many compliments. Wish I could upload pics

That punch tin panels you can buy at home improvement centers looks great and is fairly inexpensive. Colors in either silver or copper. It could be painted also.

My friend in Norway poured coffee beans behind glass - it was awesome.

My son installed his own dark green soapstone countertops then purchased sheet metal to make a backsplash.  He left it outside for a few days in light fog conditions to weather it, which did a splendid job of speckling. He then covered with a clear coat of satin finish marine varnish to protect it.  It looks like a deep gray granite backsplash...absolutely gorgeous on a minimal budget.  It's an ideal surface for magnetic knife racks and a memo board too,

Loving the potential of the photo behind glass idea, but would be worried about potential problems with the image over time. The kitchen environment is pretty demanding. I wonder how best to prevent damage to the photo? Seal it all in with silicone or allow some sort of ventilation I wonder?
