First thing first I had to remove the glass panels. Pulled out my blow dryer and a spackle knife that was flat and could slide under the back of mirrors to be removed.
Mirrored Backsplash to Pebble Backsplash
I am living in my RV for the time being, but there was a few things that I needed to fix in one of them was all the mirrors everywhere! Especially in the kitchen as a backsplash. I realize that mirrors make it look bigger but it mattered more to me to make it cozy and durable rather then for it to look big! Y And the manufacturer thought it was a great idea but after the multiple scrubbing of the mirrors while cooking I just didn’t wanna deal with it anymore.
I heated up the mirror with blow dryer and slid the spackle knife behind it and gently pulled away from wall. Took a little bit of patience but I didn’t want to break them and get seven years bad luck!
Once I got all the mirrors removed in one piece which was an accomplishment alone. I found that the glue was a little harder to remove. Are used a straight edge razor knife but it’s still left some raised residue areas. so I just used to goo gone to clean off the raised residue
I had picked up these pebble sheets at Habitat for Humanity. It Was only 8 square feet, but I love them knew I wanted to use it for something. Bingo, just the right amount for my project.
Once I got them up I really liked it but I was concerned about whether the grout would cover the adhesive or not. I waited 24 hours to dry.
I’m not sure if it was all the small pebbles are what but it did take quite a bit of grout I had to go back and buy a second small bottle of it.
It started to dry I felt much better about the adhesive that had bled through. Off-white grout did help to hide most of the bled through. I waited 24 hours to dry. Now it’s time to seal it.
I took a sponge and dabbed it all over liberally I wanted to make sure that it would be easy cleanup. It turned out pretty good I don’t think you can see the bleed through and I love it so much more than the mirrors.
It took me a couple of dayS to accomplish the small 8 ft.² but I had to let dry in between coats of grout and Sealing.
Looks great easy cleanup no more mirrors and updated it tremendously. I hope you enjoyed it let me know your thoughts. Thank you
