This month we installed a back-splash behind our kitchen counters. This is a before shot.
Jasper is the foreman of this construction site...
Type of rock tiles we used...I like natural rustic and rough finishes. These tiles were fairly straight forward to install as you don't need to grout them. You apply tile adhesive to the wall and to the back of the tiles...then press and push the tiles onto the walls. The most tedious part for Dino was cutting them to fit around the electrical outlets...he did a wonderful job!!!
We used Off White Quartzite...lovely warm/cool colors to this type of rock...it also has a bit of sparkle.
I wanted to add a cool white tile to go with the white farm sink and to add some contrast to an otherwise warm toned kitchen and paint scheme.
My man at work...measure twice...cut once.
Me above buttering up the tiles with adhesive.
Adhesive added to back of tile.
Tile adhesive we used.
I just finished making the chalkboard with Dino's help...and I just ordered some easy erase chalkboard pens...the nice thing about them is that they don't smudge and make a mess like real chalk...I can't wait to start doodling. I will take some new photos of the completed kitchen soon.
In the meatime we are gutting two bathrooms and renovating my studio which didn't get done when we moved in 1 1/2 years ago. We can see the light at the end of tunnel now and our home renos are almost complete.
I am sorry I don't have any new pieces of art to share with you...I have been a busy gal! Hopefully I can take a day here and there to create something...but at this time I can't make any promises,
