DIY Brick Backsplash
This is what our kitchen looked like when we moved in 7 years ago. Everything is totally different now. We've painted the cabinets, updated the counters, and added beams, columns, and new light fixtures.
Our most recent project was the back splash. At first we used tin, but it was never quite right. My husband and I decided that brick would be perfect because we have a brick fireplace on the other side of the kitchen. We were right!
My husband gets full credit for this beautiful rustic REAL BRICK backsplash. I helped only a tiny tiny bit.
We ended up ordering the brick on line and it was delivered straight to our door (I explain where on my blog). It was very affordable, too. Then we purchased adhesive, mortar, and sealer. My husband gives a FULL TUTORIAL on my blog, but it basically involves spreading the adhesive, and then sticking the bricks on it. These bricks are thinner than a normal brick, but they are real. Then we used spacers to get the swaggy look.
Lastly, he filled in the mortar, wiped it off with a damp sponge, and then sealed the brick. I chose to add the shelf for decorating fun. It is removable so if I want to switch this up, I can!
