Tile-ish back splash

I am living in a rented house.  I painted the whole house and then wanted to  put up some stick on tiles in the kitchen.  I had never heard of these before but I found some in Walmart  in the clearance aisle.  Too cheap to pass up.  This project took 3 packs

So first thing was first, clean off the wall.  Of course I did not take a before photo.  Didn’t think about it.  Anyway since it was painted a few months ago there was not really any hidden grease or anything on it.  I went over it with Dollar Tree degreaser anyway.

Next clean off the counter.   There was a lot of things on the counter, which made me wonder why.  One look in the pantry and I knew why.  The shelves were inefficient.  

This is how my projects snowball because now I felt compelled to fix the closet,  Next posting.

 

So basically this went really well.  I used a cutting board and a razor to cut the sheets, when I had to trim them.  I took off the electrical outlets and cut around them   I used the cardboard in the package as a straight edge guide.  I cut myself of course so I did what any respectable handy person would do…wrapped it in tissue and secured it with electrical tape

They stuck on pretty easily.  I just used a damp cloth to smooth them down.  Make sure, if you try this, to overlap the grout lines

It took less than 30 minutes to complete.
