Okay, so as I mentioned in my previous Kitchen Renovation Post, one of the things we were going to do is update the back splash around the kitchen cabinets. After much deliberation, we decided to go with the Fasade Decorative Thermoplastic Panels as mentioned before. We chose the Traditional #4 in Crosshatch Silver!
We could actually buy them locally at the Hardware Store in Downs, and we liked that idea alot! They are also very easy to install and come with accent stickers for the outlets to bring a uniformed appearance. And as Don Miller said (owner of the Hardware Store) they are alot cheaper than an actual kitchen makeover! Marion got off CHEAP...hehehehehe!
So, here is what I did...
I bought enough panels to cover the area needed. Precut and fitted each piece - placing outlet holes where needed and trim pieces in position. Then I started at one end and began placing the very aggressive adhesive tape to the back of each panel - replacing it before moving to the next panel.
|See how I would take one panel down.|
|The stove area finished.|
|Working around the corner.|
You just place them right on top of the old tile or wall.
|Note...Marion LOVED the empty counter space...|
I will definitely have to try to keep it less cluttered!
|drink station in the corner...|
coffee, tea, hot chocolate in canisters with coffee flavorings on the side.
|New square canisters with regularly used items...|
Wheat flour, brown sugar, sugar, coarse salt.
I also have the paint now too, but first I need to get some other projects lined out before I can fully paint. The new desk top should be ready early next week, so I need to get on tearing out the cabinet, but first I have to relocate the stuff inside of it...just one thing at a time!
But for now, I can cross of back splash!
