It's amazing what writing a quick post can do to get you motivated to finish projects! I was sure I wouldn't get around to finishing the back splash until Spring, but I did it! ALL. BY. MYSELF!!! With the exception of my Dad helping with a minor electrical problem. (When I cut the power off to the outlets, the one that the coffee maker uses, went dead. My dad did the investigative work on that one and helped me replace the outlet all together. Thanks Dad!)
I can't thank The Lettered Cottage, The Empty Nest, and The Handmade Home enough for all the inspiration and how to's!
I made all of my cuts with a jigsaw borrowed from my Dad. (Thanks again Dad!) Just like Ashley at The Handmade Home, I hot glued the bead board onto my existing tile back splash and the corbels too!
