Easy and Inexpensive Kitchen backsplash


tiling was not an option for me. Working on a backsplash alone, while watching 3 children under the age of 5, it was just not an option. While working on this project, I was able to do it as time allowed and still have a working kitchen. Also the look for the price could not be beaten. Follow the link for step by step instruction.

      @Kris Zahn I got this one at Lowes. If you click on the link above, it will redirect you to the original blog post. I am pretty sure I put on there a picture of the actual wall paper serial number and info.

    What did you use to attach it to the wall?

    How did you do the corners? Did you have any shrinkage?

      No shrinkage at all. About 4 years and it looks just like the day I did it. For the end corners I applied wooden trim.

    how did you get this wallpaper for $5?

      I bought the roll and then sold the leftover unused roll. My final cost was only $5.

    How does it look now? I'm desperately needing a frugal backsplash idea, but I'm afraid this would look awful after 6 months of splashes and washing,...

      5 years later and it still looks like new!!! And I cook ALL the times.
