Faux Painted Tile Backsplash

Faux Painted Tile Backsplash
contributed by Sawdust And Embryos

I know, I know… it’s Monday. But be of good cheer! We’ve got a backsplash to share! And we’re really excited about this one!

Sarah’s been wanting a backsplash in her kitchen for quite some time, but with the business of life and having other projects taking priority, the backsplash has been sitting dormant and on the back burner. Or, I guess I should say: ‘on the wall behind the back burner.’

Sarah has a sage-green-thing going on in the attached dining area, and we collectively decided on a color palate for the backsplash to include smokey grays and sage green! We love it when we can change things up with color instead of the typical beigy browns! The gray/sage combo has just the right amount of class and color without being obnoxiously funky. We love it!

The camera didn’t pick up the sage very well.  Sad face  🙁


You can see the sage better in this photo.

Dear Green,
Thank you for existing. Your such the perfect combination of blue and yellow, and you come in so many different shades… from celery to olive, mint to kelly, sage to hunter… (speaking of hunter green, do not EVER pair it with peach or light pink). Thanks again green, you rock my world.
Love, Bethany

  1. >This is so cool. I love paint since you can always paint over it and start again when you want to redecorate, which in my case is all the time.

  2. >Wow, your painted tiles look awesome. The hint of green is really refreshing and unexpected. From the photo's it looks like actual tiles rather than paint.

  3. >love this idea! Did you use regular paint and do a marble type technique? how did you get the shine?
