Colorful, Junky BacksplashDecember 29th, 2009 in member junk
I painted my kitchen walls lime green and wanted something behind my stove to draw the color back to that area. My solution was to create a mosaic backsplash. The actual placing of the pieces did not really take that long...a day or two, but the grouting is still not completely finished. Course no one notices that but me, I know where I still need to get busy on that. It is a fairly large area and I used old dishes belonging to my grandmother, small junk,broken tiles, and even the tops of incense cans. That little bit of metal really makes it pop! It is quite the conversation piece in my kitchen, and one friend brings others to see the backsplash all the time. It's fun!
