Walking through Hobby Lobby, I was inspired when I saw these bags of wood slices. I thought they would make a beautiful backsplash.
Easy Rustic Backsplash
When we built our guest cottage instead of giving it a full kitchen, we designed in a wet bar. We gave it a sink and a counter big enough for a coffee station and microwave. The one thing I couldn't decide on was what to do for a backsplash.
I could do it myself by simply gluing them to the wall with wood glue. It would be quick, easy and inexpensive.
It was a bit like putting a puzzle together. I loved that I couldn't make a mistake.
I just had to keep layering in the ones that fit. There is naturally space between the circles and that's ok.
Each bag of circles cost under $5 and it took about ten bags for me to cover the area under the cabinets.
I tried to vary the different sizes of circles each time I glued a piece on.
We kept it below the cabinets giving it a relaxed slope up under the open shelves.
