It’s Thursday! That means one more day until Friday, right? Can you give me a woot woot? We have a BIG weekend coming up. It is Miss 17 Year Old’s Junior Prom! So get prepared for some picture overload of that next week. Her gown is TO DIE FOR! So gorgeous! I can’t wait to show it off to you! So you will be seeing that next week. In case you did not know, last week, I was off for the week of spring break. And I got busy around here. I have been working on this faux subway tile painted backsplash in my kitchen for what seems like forevah! I broke it down into sections. Before spring break, I had two sections already completed. I showed you a sneak peek here. It was even featured one week over at Savvy Southern Style on Wow Us Wednesday! I was so thrilled about that! I felt like a very big deal, for about 2 seconds anyway.
So, over spring break, I was able to complete the two largest sections, which were behind the sink and the rest of the way down the wall. There is only one section left, and it is a very small section behind the microwave, that I can easily complete on the next free day I have. This will be the last post about my progress with this technique, and the next post will be the big reveal. I promise, I am going to clean and make it pretty for pictures, and everything. In these pictures it is a disaster. Work zone! I cleaned it up just a tad for a couple of these shots, but other than that, it is bad.
Overall, I am extremely happy with the results! It looks awesome! Everyone who comes to the house raves about it. We even had a professional painter here to give us an estimate (to paint out living room and stairwell), and he said I should be a professional! After this project is completed, the only other things I need to do in the kitchen are paint the door, and paint the island. I have to say, this kitchen is finally starting to come together, and it feels like “my home”, instead of just a house we moved into. And that, is a very good thing!I am linking up here:
