Z-brick backsplash--any way to cover?
OK, this is a duplicate of the deco forum, but I think I'll get more responses here...I think I have the ugliest backsplash imaginable! It's the faux brick that was popular in the 80s. It's red with black "mortar". This is not cheap plastic cover; it's like half bricks that were put up. It is my MIL's house(deceased) and my DH put it up for her--he can't understand why I don't like it! I know the best case would be to tear it out, put up new sheetrock and have a CHOICE of backsplash. BUT, my DH is really not inclined to do that no matter how much I hate this stuff. It becomes the "someday" project which I know I'll never live to see. So, is there anything to cover the brick? My concern then is that the outlets would be too recessed to be usable. My DH suggested painting the brick, but a lighter color would just show more dirt and still be impossible to clean properly. If anyone has successfully done this I'd love to hear about it. Pix would be great too!
