    Thank you everyone. We have not sealed the backsplash yet. We were waiting till we painted our cabinets. We do plan to seal it. The kitchen is a basic U shape. The sink is on an outer counter, not up against the wood. So not much splashing of

    unless they are drying in the shade Joe I don't think they would get mold. besides, people usually sand them down before working with them and that would get rid of anything growing on them. Then they are usually sealed as well.

    @Joe and Marg, Pallets tend to be made from Hardwood for repeated use, usually Oak, they are pressure treated to resist insect infestation, so that is something to consider when you're sanding them....

    Love this idea - we have lots of reclaimed - recycled wood that my husband has used in our carport and storage shed and this is a great idea for a backsplash.
