    Just try, it sounds like a small area

    Dont wash your special decoration!

    You will never be able to make your tile backsplash look like stone unless you are a VERY good faux painter. If you hate the color, then paint the tile another color. HOWEVER, before you do that, check out Maria Killam's blog about choosing colors. It may not be the backsplash that is making your kitchen look outdated.
