DIY Kitchen Backsplash


My old outdated kitchen.
I really wanted a unique, copper backsplash but that wasn't in the budget. I decided to create my own using foam board, foam paper, heavy duty aluminum foil, modge podge, hammered copper spray paint, pewter glaze and semi-gloss polyurethane.
Cut foam board to size, duct tape joints, glue shapes cut out of foam paper to board, crinkle aluminum foil and smooth out (about a foot longer than board), spread modge podge over everything a section at a time and stick aluminum foil down pressing around shapes, rolling pin over surface to smooth, paint, spread glaze on wipe of till desired effect, polyurethane, use double sided mounting tape to stick to wall.
Painted cabinets, new hardware and backsplash
I love the artistic, uniqueness of my new kitchen!

    This is wonderful. Great job. Can you share the brand and color of your cabinet paint.

      How do you clean the back splash? It’s really beautiful, but I am assuming it can be wiped down with a damp cloth?
