We used Christmas break to install a stone backsplash in the kitchen.
Our house is old by Apache Junction standards. All of the walls have been finished with a textured paint, so installation began with a challenge.
Using orbital sanders, we sanded the wall down to a smooth finish. Home Depot had tiles of stone, which I cut to size with a tile saw. Outlets were cut out with a diamond blade on the Dremel. start to finish, the project took about 4 hours.
I installed a new faucet with a brushed finish to compliment the new backsplash. The final touch was to hang a painting by New Jersey Artist Kevin Quigley.
