What happens when you find a few boxes of individual tiles on clearance for $0.02 each? You put on your thinking cap and come up with a way to take advantage of a bargain. That's exactly what's been done here and it covers the old inlaid painted border tiles perfectly. We stopped in over at A Nest For All Seasons where this tile project was happening. The look is great and makes an old backsplash appear fresh and new. Although it might require a little extra grouting or sealing so food and grease doesn't get lodged behind each tile, it was a quick and simple way to dress things up.
For the whole look to make sense, make sure to stop by A Nest For All Seasons to see what this backsplash looked like before. We like the idea of simply covering up the new instead of tearing the whole thing out. It makes a daunting project all the easier.
