Faux Brick Backsplash
DIY Faux Brick backsplash from faux brick panels
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.
Put your cut panel into place.
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.
