How do you finish the edges on corrugated metal?
I have just recently painted my cupboards and counter-tops (and I love them) but I need to put up a back splash and I would like to use corrugated metal but I'm not exactly sure how to finish off the edges? Should I use wood? I've read that their is some sort of aluminum trim you can use I'm just wanting to find out the best think to do.
thank you for your time and attention! Kay

Depending on the type and color of the corrugated tin you use, you can edge the backsplash in a number of ways. For a play on texture, you can use bullnose tile. Measure the areas to be trimmed and do a dry layout on the wall with the tile to determine the best arrangement. Cut any tiles to size with a tile saw, and apply an even layer of thinset to the wall, using the notched end of a trowel. Press each tile firmly into the thinset, wiping away any excess with a damp sponge, and once everything is installed, let it dry for 24 hours. Apply grout over the tile and then wipe away the excess with a sponge, ensuring you thoroughly clean any grout that gets onto the tin.
You can also use the same color and type of wood as your cabinets to trim all the exposed edges, cutting the trim to size and securing it to the wall with finishing nails. To play off the metal theme, use aluminum trim in a matching or complementary color, attaching it to the wall using the same adhesive you used for the corrugated tin.
