Andrea’s rental kitchen was lacking a backsplash… and personality. Enter Etsy with a colorful (and temporary!) solution that complements her space.

From Andrea:

I had been looking for an answer to my rental kitchen woes for over a year when I found these removable wall/tile decals by Bleucoin on Etsy. I was instantly inspired to refresh my dark and boring galley kitchen with them.
After a coat of fresh white paint, a shelf above the sink to add storage and character, the tile decals were the icing on the cake! They were super affordable and they appear surprisingly authentic. It’s actually really hard to tell they aren’t the real thing.
They even made the narrow space seem wider and the color and pattern turned my kitchen into a happy place! And maybe, just maybe, they make my terrible blue counter tops look a little more bearable. Ha!

Thank you Andrea!
