I recently discovered a new product called "Weathered Stone". It feels like thick paper, but once you are finished with your project, you cannot tell that it isn't tile! Really! You can purchase scrap pieces for a lot cheaper. Below is a detailed tutorial on how I made this project.
Faux Tile Backsplash
Instead of applying the faux tiles to the wall, I placed them in a frame.
See! It looks like thick paper!
Here I started laying out my design.
The grouting is easy and fun.
I found this little metal piece in the jewelry aisle at the craft store. Everything looks a little better with a little bling! Purchase Weathered Stone
Seal with two coats! Cleanable, durable, loveable.
