We used a 47.75-in x 7.98-ft Embossed Red Brick Hardboard Wall Panel from Lowe's. They are $29.98 and one is enough for a average kitchen.

My husband measured and made cut outs for the outlets, using a jigsaw.

We used construction adhesive to apply to the panel. Apply the construction adhesive liberally to ensure it is secure. Use finishing nails to secure the ends.

These panels came "Brick Color" I wanted the base to be white so I picked up a quart of white paint.

This is after the first coat of white, we used a basic white.

I added some black paint into random spots and smeared with my rag to add in touches of darker brick.

Next I applied dark wax to the entire panel to give the effects of "aged" brick. You can go lighter and heavier in some spaces.

Next I needed to light the grout. I used some white chalk paint I had on hand.
