bye bye ugly backsplash

12 Dec

Hi All! Hope you had a fab and crafty weekend!

Sunday night we did a little backsplash demolition. Yee!

Feels so good to get rid of that hideous granite backsplash.

And let me just tell you it was not an easy task, the amount of glue they used on those suckers was crazy! So I had to in list the husband for some help.

We definitely will have to do some patching which we expected. Unfortunately as much as we love our older home, it comes with a price and most all of our walls are bowed.

After we finished, I noticed a couple of dilemmas. For one I hated HATED how they originally installed the granite on the wood panel next to the fridge. It’s like who does that!

So I’m hoping after we remove the glue we can salvage it to avoid having to tile over it.

This section should be a lot easier, the husband can patch and touch up the wall. I don’t know I’m not a fan of tile wrapped around the wall especially when there is not cabinet there.

And now that the ugly backsplash went bye bye, I could visualize our new tile so much better. We decided to go with a white glossy subway tile.

I’m sooo excited and can’t wait until its complete!

Which will hopefully be this week so stay tuned.
