After adding upper cabinets in my kitchen, painting it and giving it a whole new look, I decided the gold backsplash wasn’t working. I guess I wasn’t thinking that far ahead when I was thinking about freshening up the space. I hate when that happens, don’t you? All I could think about was a shiny, new subway tiled backsplash. I love the fresh, clean look, but realized that change wasn’t going to happen soon, so I came up with plan B, my substitute for subway tile.
source Isn’t this subway tile beautiful?
The gold backsplash was great with my old kitchen and really wasn’t that bad with the new look. It was the gold I wanted to be gone. You can see the previous looks of the kitchen here.
Plan B was painting the tile. It was a quick and easy solution. I used plain old flat white paint. Because of the texture of the tile, I didn’t think a shiny finish, like subway tile, would look good.
I didn’t cover every nook and cranny completely to emphasize the texture of the tile. It looks more like a whitewash.
It really looks so much brighter.
So there’s the new look! It’s working for me now. I’m almost certain that I’ll get tired of this too! Who knows what will be trending next?
It looks pretty with pops of bright colors.
Here’s a closer look at the tile and my pretty old cheese box filled with plants. Hope I can Keep them alive!
Next up on the interior project list will be painting but that will have to wait until all my work outside is finished. I’ve been enjoying working in the garden and getting the flower beds ready for summer. The weather has been just about perfect for working outdoors and it feels great to be outside. We’ve got some power washing to do and I need to paint the shed door but it’s looking good.What have you been up to?
