My parents recently moved into a brand new, beautiful townhouse. It is lovely and the kitchen is out of this world! The only thing they decided not to get done professionally was a back-splash in the kitchen. My mom told me that we should learn how to do it ourselves...so this has been on my mind a lot lately. In our kitchen at home, I'm not sure I'd opt for a back-splash (our counter tops are kind of dynamic and I feel like it would detract from their pizazz) but I still think they can be fantastic. I've found some really amazing examples out there that are serving as some inspiration!
