Kitchen Backsplash

Okay, okay, okay…this is not a permanent backsplash, but I don’t hate it. Eventually I would like to have white subway tiles, but the thought of tiling is very intimidating for me. I can do it, but I’m going to have to put my perfectionista pants on and I haven’t had that kind of patience in me just yet.

In the meantime, I have used a stick on wallpaper that looks like brick. Back when I moved in, I put this wallpaper inside of my cupboards. Now that some of my cupboard doors have glass, it looks like the wall is brick all of the way up.


The wood is from an old cedar fence. It’s nailed on with just a few nails and then I white-washed it. I used my jigsaw to cut around the electrical outlets.



I didn’t seal it or anything, it’s temporary, but I couldn’t live without something while I wait to muster up enough courage to do tile.

Cost: I already had the wallpaper, but when I’d originally purchased it for the inside of the cupboard doors it was $30/roll at Target. The wood was free from an uncle.
