{Basement Progress} Installing Mosaic Subway Tile Backsplash


I'm slowly making progress on our basement makeover. The other week I finished the PLANK WALL and just last weekend I added a mosaic subway tile backsplash to our bar.
The full step by step tile installation can be found on my blog, HERE.
When we first moved into our home the basement was dark and dated. The walls were covered in paneling and the only light were two large florescent ceiling lights. We knew we wanted to update the space and also add a small bar area, so we slowly tore everything out until we were down to the studs.
The bathroom was moved down a few feet to make room for a bar. The old bathroom sink became the new bar sink and new plumbing was ran for the bathroom.
To save money we used inexpensive wood cabinets from Lowe's that we stained and installed ourselves. We added granite counters and that's how it sat until I found time to install the backsplash.

    I love subway tile! The cabinets came out great! Love the color! The counter top complements the cabinets and tile. All blends together. Super choices. Great work!
