what i’ve done so far…backsplash

ok, so i’ve finally gotten part of the back splash up and painted. it turned out just about how i wanted it to and i’ve spent only about $10

(we have some boards already up here. if you notice the back its this vinyl faux wood sticker or something. its awful!)

we(the husband and i) used furring board which is used as a base wood for other types of wall…like drywall, etc. it’s also 92¢ for an 8 foot board at Lowes.

then i painted it with only one coat of white paint so the wood grain and knots would show through


if you can tell in the before shot, there was weird partial shelf above the sink. the cubby part is great, but there is a huge half circle cut out in the middle. so i cut down a shelf board i already had to fit and now we have tons more display room!


i have more area to cover and some things i want to fix, clean and add, but for now this is what we have. and we only tripped the electricity with nails once. zap!
