Hello to my fellow renters! Here's the situation: I've been fighting with my kitchen ever since I moved into my apartment. It's completely functional, but it's not ideal for the following reasons: it's way too small, the cabinets do nothing to help visually, and the walls have been stained from cooking accidents of years past. I wanted to class the joint up a bit, and decided to install a fake backsplash by way of removable vinyl wallpaper.
For most, subway tile in the kitchen is a classic look. It's clean. It's simple. But it can be a costly and time-consuming project to take on yourself. However, this tile hack is pure genius and looks fantastic! Dreams just came true for renters everywhere!
Dated kitchen be gone! We're about to get fresh and fun(ky) up in here.
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
Not everything is big in Texas…especially not my 650 square foot condo that I felt needed a little excitement. Everyone knows the kitchen is the epicenter of one’s home (no matter how small), so I figured this would be the best place to create a piece of art that would inspire my cooking as well as conversation from my family and guests.
I ran across the idea of creating a backsplash using broken plates and glass. As you see, starting small...
I don't know about you, but I grew up with a few of these (except the sewing version) floating around the house, due to my mom being a professional seamstress. Now that she's upgraded to fancy metal ones, I almost wish we would have kept some of her old wood yard sticks so I could use them for a project... in the kitchen?
It's time to eliminate my handpainted tiles from the backsplash. I've never taken down tiles from a vertical surface and we've only put down floor tiles. Is it possible to get these off without much wall damage and if there is repair, how hard is it? I am craving some white subway tiles, new paint, new art, reupholstered chairs and THEN I'LL BE HAPPY!!! If there are any really good tutorials out there for backsplashes, send them my way. ...
