RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Terrific! How exciting to see it going in. Were you able to resist standing behind the tile layer and watching over his/her shoulder all day?

Bee, Love your choice of photos. I normally dislike commercials, but when I heard that one playing I would actually run into the room to watch it, just because the pig was so darn cute.

I am the unofficial chair of the ABB alumni club and want to officially welcome you to the group.

badgergal- Thank you! In my dreams, people refer to me as "refreshingly different" instead of weird, "vibrant" instead of in denial about my age, and "oh so cool" well, just because.

sanjuan- Love Gustave Klimt! Love the use of color in ways that evoke emotion, especially if the emotion is a mixture of joy and sexiness!

cat_mom - Thank you. I love it.

gemini - Looking forward to officially becoming an alum!!

and of course Bee - Keep the pigs comin'!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Gorgeous. So happy for you!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Awesome! I think you definitely picked the right pencil color. So pretty!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

sail-away - No, I sat at the bar pretty much all day and watched. Of course, these guys have been working in my house for 6 weeks, so it's like we're old friends.

secondhalf - Thanks. I'm happy too.

williamsem - I agree. I couldn't have done it without the GW'ers!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Wow, you did it! It's gorgeous, totally original, and totally you (I'm guessing, but it has to be...). Congrats, and enjoy your space in the best of health!

RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

The backsplash behind your stove is so beautiful I could honestly stare at it all day. It's like looking at a waterfall of color and energy and joy.
Amazing!

RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

EAM - Yes! I did it, and I love it, and it IS me, but it's the me at my core, not the me I sometimes feel I have to be on the outside, and that is more than just a beautiful kitchen, that is liberating on a deeper level!

localeater - That's exactly how it makes me feel, and yes, I am wasting time staring at it when I should be folding laundry.

More is going up today. Probably will finish with the tile and then grout tomorrow.


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Stunningly beautiful, exhilirating, and it makes YOU feel great - what a perfect choice!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

I absolutely love the Mexican tile - it looks awesome!

I wish I knew how to do tiny type - Did you maybe think about not including the white tile at all? The other tile looks so great, it feels like the white just isn't bringing much to the party...


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

that.is.soooo.cool. congrats! looking forward to soliciting help and opinions on BS soon.


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

I absolutely love it! I'm going to remember this for my next house (10 years from now). Congratulations!


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Wow! Do you have any closeups of that masterpiece?


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Gorgeous!!! Is that the fabulous Tierra y Fuego tile I see?????


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Well! What happened today? Any more pictures?


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

chiefly - appreciate the attempt at tiny type lol. I like the white, but even my 15 yo daughter told me she thought it looked "random."

breezy - closeup attached. There is no lighting over that wall right now, so I get flash glare from my phone, but you get the idea.

annsch - YES!!! Thank you for suggesting it. Both my husband and I had looked at it before, both loved it, but thought the other would not, and so never brought it up until you posted it here and made me revisit it. Funny how things work sometimes.


 o
RE: Backsplash Starting Today!!!!

Wow! Aren't you a lucky girl! It looks beautiful! Glad I could be of assistance in some fashion. It's a great choice and so fun to see it in someone's kitchen!
