My daughter just bought a new house a few months ago and decided to do her own backsplash to save money. They started with a darker gray tile backsplash and didn’t like how it looked up on the wall with the cabinets. So they ripped it off and started over with a gray subway tile backsplash.
They chose this pretty gray glass backsplash tile pattern. But with the granite and white cabinets she just wasn’t feelin’ it!! So she started over. This was a pain to rip off too! Luckily she has a very nice husband and he helped her chisel all of those tiles off. This tile looks cream in the picture. But it has flecks of gray in it and gray grout. So it does look good with everything else in the kitchen.
They like it a lot better. I do too. It is so hard to envision how those tiles will look up on the wall with everything around it already in place. In the store you think it will be lighter than it will be up on the wall. I have to force myself to go lighter every time. It is kind of like the paint rule of thumb; when in doubt go lighter.
|I decided to snap some pics of her cute dining room too. I love how it turned out. This lamp is so pretty and glittery.
When you touch it…you can hear the chiming of the glass pieces.
|Pretty candlesticks from me, her cool mom.|
|This gray colored plate is pretty large on the wall and adds a neat texture piece to the room.|
|Close up of these pretty white matted pictures in different scrapbook papers.|
|We enjoyed some good food while we were there. I loved these cute straws and napkins that matched.|
|Small casserole dishes make great utensil holders too.|
|This is her grandmother’s china, my mom gave it to her as she was the first granddaughter in the family. It is still timeless.|
|Here is a picture of the living room and the cool beamed ceiling there.|
|My favorite little grandson. He’s my only grandson too.|
|Pretty decor in the gray and white room. The tray ceiling is pretty too.|
|I loved the rug and the blue tufted chairs too.. I love it all. It’s such a pretty place.
I think she likes decorating as much as I do. She is really good at it too I think!
