Object: Kitchen Backsplash

Materials: Porcelain Floor Tile

Method: Direct

The left over porcelain tiles used for the kitchen floor were broken up and used for the backsplash in the entire room. The pieces were affixed to the walls with mastic.

The trim between the tiles and counter top is tumbled stone purchased at Home Depot. The random blue toned stones in addition to the overall texture of the trim fit nicely with all the other elements already in the kitchen. I put a bead of clear caulk under the trim to make sure any puddled water would not seep through to the wall.

After all the cabinets and counters were taped off, the grout was applied. A coat of sealant, to keep the inevitable spaghetti sauce from sticking, was the last step.
