Do you have a boring backspash in your kitchen? Maybe you completed a fabulous kitchen makeover and you’ve got a charming beadboard backsplash or you’ve installed sleek and sparkly glass tile.
Or maybe you’re just like me, living in a builder grade house and brainstorming ways to add character and color where there is none.
My kitchen backsplash is covered in square white tiles. Blah. Last year I added a message center to help corral those little pieces of paper that seem to multiply on their own. I succeeded in covering up some of the tile.
That helped a little. Read the full post here.
What else could we hang on our backsplashes to pretty them up?
- How about plates? Colorful china would perk up the most boring of tile jobs.
- Small frames filled with scrapbook paper, postcards, small art or fabric would be cute and economical.
- Chalkboards? What a great way to leave a note or jot down a recipe idea.
- You could also attach a metallic surface (sheet metal?) and hang photos, notes or postcards with magnets. Check out these heirloom bling magnets at Just a Girl.
(Wondering how you’d attach decorative objects to ceramic tile? I used 3M command strips.)
Check out these platters! They could be hung up or just propped like in this eclectic kitchen. Love those industrial inspired open shelves!
