I have always wanted a beautiful kitchen with an expensive and beautiful backsplash. You know…the kind you see on Pinterest and in the architecutal magazines.
When we bought our home, almost 10 years ago, the kitchen was my least favorite room.
It was tiny and outdated. The countertops were a marbled green color and the wallpaper was white with green stripes. I wish I had a picture to show you, but I don’t. I had three kids under the age of 8 and no time for picture taking. Besides, the kitchen was a hideous beast I wanted to forget.
I do have some older pictures that were taken about 5 years ago when we knocked out a wall to open the kitchen up into our game room. You can see the before and after in the picture below.
It’s still not the kitchen of my dreams, or even a kitchen that I love, but it is what it is, and little changes can make me very happy.
I decided to order the faux brick wallpaper for myself as a Christmas present. I wrapped it, placed it under the tree, and was filled with happiness when I opened it on Christmas morning!!!
I didn’t take any pictures during the installation process, but it is fairly simple. The hardest part was lining the pattern up correctly. This can take some time to figure out, but be patient and you will figure it out. The key to making the backsplash look really realistic is to line up the pattern properly, so don’t skimp on this part!!!
Here’s a “before” picture.

I love it!!! What do you think???
