    Hi Karen! Who are you asking for free supplies? If you think it might be a project that a manufacturer might like to feature, you could contact them directly. Different companies often sponsor bloggers with a large following to showcase their products. Simplest tiles would be peel and stick. But, if you are careful, it is a project any DIYer can do with grout and tile, as long as you follow directions. It's messy, though.

    Move appliances out of the way and cover the surrounding area to protect adjacent surfaces.
    Establish the perimeter of the area you’ll cover, and apply painter’s tape to the walls to mark the edges.
    Apply thin-set tile adhesive to the wall using a notched trowel.
    Install any border tile first, then position the sheets of subway tile on the wall and press them in place.
    Use a tile saw to cut any tile needed to size or around electrical outlets.
    After the adhesive has dried overnight, apply grout to the tile using a rubber float.
    Use a damp big sponge to remove any excess grout and any grout haze.
