the kitchen backsplash

19 Jan

Wow! Sorry for the very long Holiday break. We’ve been so busy over here with getting Christmas done, finishing up the backsplash, and taking a long over due vacation.

We spent 10 amazing days in Kauai with the whole fam and loved every minute of it.

I also finally took some photos of the completed backsplash. Which I’m still drooling over…

At the last minute I decided to go with the Antique White grout and I’m so glad I did. I really like how it pulls out the lighter color in the granite.

Don’t you just love how the light reflects off the tile.

Woo! So now that that’s done we move onto the next big project….

don don donnnn

the guest bathroom!

I’m so excited to get started, I can’t even contain myself. Unfortunately with the play offs in my way, I might just have to wait until after the Super Bowl.

or butter up the husband with some extra foot massages.

Winking smile

Have a great rest of the week!

    I Love it! I had been following your blog and knew we have very similar taste, but we just finished our kitchen and it looks pretty similar to yours…similar subways, similar granite, similar stain….crazy!

    Is this backsplash white or off-white? I saw that the grout is antique white.

    Hi Lizzie,

    Can you give me a link to these tiles? ( or some details on where to purchase, color, etc). Looking to replace my backsplash and would like to do something like this. Thank you!!!

    Hi- i love your update! we also went with plain subway tile and so far, i am happy with the results. I’m putting up the last pieces today (took longer than I thought since I did a herringbone pattern and was dealing with unlevel counter tops and cabinets). Anyway, I’m having trouble deciding on the grout. I’m leaning towards Laticrete “antique white” which is how I came across your blog. Is this the Laticrete brand you used or some other brand? Thanks and congrats on being finished!
