We finally did it! The new glass tile backsplash is done. I ordered the glass tile online from The Home Depot, it's the arctic ice tile in the 2"x 4" size. It comes on mesh which makes installation go quicker. We bought a tile saw after comparing the price of renting one to buying an inexpensive one that we could take our time using and keep when we were done. It took us about half a day to cut and install. A couple days later I grouted. Lastly, well I still need to seal the grout, but it shouldn't take long.
The kitchen looks modern and fresh now!
A small area between a wall and the refrigerator.
I'm happy with how it has all turned out. Here is what it was like before, just too dark for me. It is light and bright now! Next, paint the cabinets. Probably not anytime soon, I need a little break.
