Kitchen Back Splash Done


I've been wanting to show you guys all week but since I don't get home until after dark, it was hard to get some decent pictures.  Here goes.


The tiles are grey, brown, tan, and white.  Hubby chose this one.  I was leaning more towards a neutral tan and white set but glad we chose this one instead.  It pops more and has a good mix of colors that will go good with the future dark cabinets.  The back splash will pop out instead of blending in. 




I picked up a few faux plants and pots from Ikea.
 

I was finally able to find some stainless containers to match the rest of the kitchen appliances at Target.
 



Now for the hard part, painting the cabinets.

See the rundown on how we tiled the back splash here.
