    How was the durability factor I love what you did and want to do it to all of my appliances

      It still looks great: no scratches or tears! I don't have pets or children at home though, so that could be a factor.

    Where did you get the "stainless" covering you used. It looks great

      I'm sorry I don't remember. I ordered it online. Try doing a search for Faux Stainless Steel Film.

    Do u think stainless steel film would work for backsplash, over tiles?

      I don't think it would work. It needs to be applied over a smooth surface. Have you thought of the embossed metal tiles like the ones on old ceilings?
