Board and Batten With Leftover Faux Wood Blinds

A trip to ReStore and my lack of funds for a subway tile backsplash gave me the idea for this Board and Batten with Faux Wood Blinds. I needed new blinds and scored big time at ReStore paying only $12 for two sets. After I shortened them, I ended up with a few extra pieces. Nothing gets wasted in my home, so I used the blinds to create a kitchen backsplash.

Nail Polish Marbling

Nail polish marbling is something I’ve always wanted to try. Some people use mugs, plates and vases for dipping in nail polish, I used faux wood blinds. After installing the faux wood blinds board and batten in the kitchen, I still had several pieces left. The white faux wood was the perfect candidate for my nail polish marbling.
