Adding Kitchen Back Splash

Pin It
If you have never tiled, do it ! ! 
It's one of the most rewarding DIY projects. 
Husband and I do not work fast, but we are very steady. 

We know when to have things hired out, we had all the counter tops sanded and buffed. They are Corian and look brand new.

We always pick 2-3 tiles purchase one 12" x 12" of each and bring them home. We had to do this twice, my kitchen is small and what I thought I liked, I didn't like when home in the kitchen.
