Comments - Ginger's Major Mosaic Kitchen Makeover

Tamiko on Sep 23, 2019:

This backsplash looks so good, you did a great job, and we appreciate your comments on the process you used to complete it!

It is so beautiful it makes me want to cry. I can't wait to do my kitchen backsplash and the tiny lavette floor in my new home! Thanks for the tip about the mesh, which I never thought of either. You are amazing!

This is absolutely impressive!  Inspiration to all us DIYers, of what endurance can achieve.  FYI - because I don't usually stop and think either when I get an idea in my head, I can see making the exact same mistake.  Awesome work! Thanks for sharing. :)

Absolutely stunning

What a beautiful difference you made in your space! I made large mosaic inserts in my backsplash about 15 years ago, drawing the design with a Sharpie directly on the wall and sitting or leaning on the counter to apply each piece. So tedious and uncomfortable! It's a good thing I still love it, and with your tips on how to do it right, I'll tackle the project again in a future house. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you thank you thank you. I have boxes of broken dishes from my coffeehouse that I sold several years ago. I still miss it and want to use those pieces in my kitchen. This idea has been in my head since, but I was afraid to start. Thanks for sharing your story and photos. It's beautiful!

so very beautiful. fabulous job!!! you should be very proud of yourself. And when and if you should ever move, get the sawzall out remove the wall and take it with you.

This is just the inspiration I have been looking for.   We've had our new kitchen done for over a year - but living with plain backsplash until I can find something 'just right' - something creative ....  I love what you did, and I love that you tell us how, including your "wish I had only..." instructions.  Thank you, thank you!

I would hate to think about having to move and not being able to take it with me...

I feel ya girl on the "work smart, not hard" thing...This is GORGEOUS none the less.


Heidi on Oct 05, 2012:

I feel so inspired looking at this! Wow! SOO beautiful and so amazing how it transformed the space! I love to do mosaics as well and used to go the thrift store route until I discovered a Habitat For Humanity re-store in my area. They sell tons of nice flat tiles in a ton of different colors for super cheap. However, I love the way you used the center of the plates. I have never used tile nips, just a hammer and pillowcase. I think I need to get that tool. Great job. This will never go out of style.


Dawn Hope on Aug 21, 2012:

You are my hero! Of all the web pages, books and mags I've scoured in preparation of diy'g my kitchen backsplash I have not come across the mesh idea. I owe you one! Thanks!!


Cindy on Apr 06, 2012:

I followed the same process a few years ago doing my kitchen backsplash.  Took a month of re-arranging on my dining room table to get it to look right then followed the same process of back buttering to install.  I did not know about the mesh.  What a better way to do it!


Judy on Mar 07, 2012:

Wow!  It's so creative and beautiful!  I'm very impressed!

Olivia - the spoons, forks, and knives were found as a pattern on a plate that I bought from a second hand store.  They fit perfect in this design!  Please take a look at my website www.mosaicsbyginger.com.  I am available for commissions.  :)



Olivia on Sep 18, 2011:

Saw this on Pinterest and I MUST know-- how did you get those little tiny forks and spoons on your tile? It is so cute. You did a fantastic job. I would swear a professional artist was contracted for it!


Chúcara on Aug 26, 2011:

beautiful ... really talented


Susan on Aug 23, 2011:

I can truely appreciate every minute of this process. My garage is full of mosaic UFOs( unfinished objects) waiting for the grout. My big dream is the back splash in my kitchen. Congratulations from a little Arty -house by a lake, near a beach, in Australia.


Marie on Aug 23, 2011:

That mosaic is absolutely STUNNING!!  Congratulations.  I don't think I could have done it - but you've inspired me to think about it...!


Katie on Aug 23, 2011:

i can't believe this only took you one month! IT looks like a project that would take MONTHS! Amazing and soooooooo beautiful!

Michael - I just had a chance to take a look at your pinterest.com site.  LOVE all the ideas!!!  Thanks so much for sharing! Now I'm seriously adding a bunch of projects to the never-ending list of must-do-this-soon!  Yikes!  :)  I love the mosaic garden towers!  Awesomeness.


Nancy on Aug 23, 2011:

Love the tiny silverware in the pattern! This is sooooo cool!

And by the way - don't be intimidated by Beef Wellington - it's just roast beef wrapped in pie crust.
