Bathroom Tub Backsplash Update

After painting my master bathroom (again!) I decided to tile the backsplash around the tub. Using leftover tile, trim and wall planks, the update was practically free.

I used leftover wall plank to serve as a "backer board" for the tile. Nailing it instead of gluing it to the wall, it can be taken down without destroying the wall. I don't like "permanent". :D
Stone tile left over from the planter box project. I picked up a whole box of this tile at Habitat Restore for $10.00!
I used silicon adhesive to attach the tile to the backer board.
My tub was so not level! Used shims to level out the tile while the glue dried.
I picked up half round trim at Lowes and stained it with MinWax walnut stain.
I cut and painted wall plank to fill in the space between the half round trim and window moulding. The wall plank looks like subway tile on the wall.
