Faux Tile Backsplash & Dining room

A couple of things that we have done to our home.  When we moved into our home 5 1/2 years ago we painted every wall.  On of those walls was the kitchen backsplash.  I picked a color I thought I liked and put it up.  From the moment it was finished I HATED it.  Not that it was a bad color or anything it was just basically the same color as the cabinets and it looked really strange. (a few painful years later when I could finally talk my husband into painting again)  We had the idea to make faux tile on the back splash instead.  I have loved it ever since.  Recently (like Friday) I helped my super talented friend Sharon over at This Thrifty House (I know I actually get to know her in real life) paint her backsplash I LOVE how she did hers so you should go check it out.  (and yes, those are the only things that get to live on my counter tops)



One thing I have always loved and still love 5 1/2 years later is our dining area.  We added the crown molding and the other wood at the bottom it was super easy and I LOVE the look.
