We noticed water damage under the sink. Although the damage was minor, it would likely get worse with time. I got inspiration from the "put peel and stick tile under the sink!"

We were able to "borrow" my dad's wet saw (we "borrowed" it for around 2 years). If you don't have somebody to borrow from you can rent one at Home Depot. This was my first time using it and I was nervous, but it wasn't difficult to use.

    Your subway tile goes perfectly with your farmhouse sink. It's a great decision. It's just sad that you have to hide it.

    I love that simple mat! I did subway tile in my kitchen all the way to the ceiling with that product years ago and it's still holding perfectly. I also helped my daughter re-do her entire kitchen one weekend and it came out amazing. Her tile was
