The Crazy Suburban Mom: My kitchen backspash...

My kitchen backspash...


So what do you do when you don't have a back splash? Not tile? Not wall paper? Not even a cheesy faux finished Tuscany village back there?

Well if you have a sense of adventure you ransack your house for every scrap of paint you can find and have at it!

One day a few years ago I'd had it with my back splash. Or lack there of. I grabbed all the paints I had (which wasn't much since I did not paint than) and created a back splash. This is the kind of thing that sends my family screaming out the door. What will I do now? How bad will it look? How long will the place be a mess? Will the products require a haz-mat suit?

I figured the worst thing that could happen would be that I needed to paint. And I already needed to paint - all that was there was icky dirty uncrushable builder's paint.

At best I'd love it. And if I didn't love it at least maybe I could tolerate it...

I never changed it. It remains....

and interestingly enough later on I decided to do something entirely different to the other side. The side with the stove.

This isnt wall paper...

Who knew normal old mailing paper - You know the brown stuff on a roll? Could look so good!
