He's the worst.
I shared my plan for our new house yesterday and told you that I already had a few things accomplished from my list... here's one of them!
I wanted to put up backsplash tiles up in the kitchen since the moment I saw it, but I had a few reservations: First, cutting glass tile is not something I want to do. Second, grout is really messy and I'm just not into it right now. And third, I don't know a lot about interior design, but I do know that styles and fads pass. They pass quickly. What happens if I put up a backsplash and decide it's not what I like in a year or two? The only thing that was scarier to me than putting up a backsplash is taking it down.
And then, I found Smart Tiles. These things are amazing.
They are self-adhesive tiles. They are simple to put up. And you can't tell the difference between glass tiles and Smart Tiles. Really, I tested company and they couldn't tell. I'm a fun host.
The first step is having your husband clean the wall surface. The husband has to do this because you will have cookies in your hand. At least, that was how it happened for me.
The next step is drawing a level line and beginning the install.
You peel and stick. That's the install. SO SIMPLE. If you need to cut the tiles, you use a razor knife. If I can do this, you can do this. We had the whole kitchen done in an afternoon and it was actually fun.
Here's the before:
And the after:
I absolutely love them. And another bonus: These are removable. Take a hair dryer to the corner of a tile and heat it up... it will peel off if you decide you're over the tile look and want to paint a stencil instead. Perfect.
Check out the Smart Tiles website and watch the install video. If that doesn't make you a believer, nothing will.
