free-standing glass block backsplash?
Some of you were very helpful a few months back when I posted about redoing our small and awkward kitchen. We have decided to put the remodel on hold and just make 2 small changes to make it a little more functional while we save up. One of the changes is adding a backsplash behind the sink, which is part of a peninsula. We were thinking of making one with glass block. The peninsula is flat, with NO backing at all, so there is nothing to put tile on. I thought glass block would be a good choice for that reason, plus we live in a 100-y-o American 4-square, with glass block in the bathroom, and a few prairie/arts&crafts accents throughout the house. There is a 2 3/4" strip of countertop behind the sink (formica I think), so there would be enough room for the blocks, right? I have done a little looking online but haven't found anything useful on free-standing glass block backsplashes. What do you all think? Any advice? Is this a good idea or a crazy one?
