First, remove any remaining residue from previous installs. The back side of the backsplash/sidesplash should be smooth, ready for new adhesive.
How to Install a Backsplash
Remodeling a bathroom on a budget? Try to find vanities, vanity tops (with coordinating backsplash/sidesplashes) at places like ReStore. Since vanities typically come in standard sizes, this is a great way to save money on a remodel. Plus, it's easy to install the backsplash and sidesplash in your space!
Use a caulk gun to apply construction to the back side of the backsplash and each sidesplash.

Also, use the caulk gun to apply clear silicone to the vanity top. The clear silicone should be applied where the backsplash/sidesplash will be placed onto the counter.
Place the sidesplash or backsplash onto the vanity top. Once it is set in place, press it against the wall. The construction adhesive will adhere it to the drywall.
Finally, run a line of clear silicone along the angle where the backsplash/sidesplash meets the vanity top. This will prevent water from seeping in between the two pieces.
Gorgeous, right? You can also check out the full vanity makeover (which included making it taller and deeper!) if you are looking for more affordable bathroom reno ideas.
