DIY Beadboard Backsplash

You can totally and completely transform your kitchen with this DIY beadboard backsplash - it's much cheaper and easier to install than tile, and it delivers a beautiful farmhouse feel! You can see all of the details by clicking through to the full blog post!
To get the backsplash started, simply use a level to draw a line across the top of your wall next to the ceiling to ensure the wall is hung straight. We attached ours with a nail gun - the pieces interlock, so it's almost like putting a puzzle together!
We used a staggered pattern to ensure that your eyes would drift right over the seams.
We added trim pieces around all of the edges and the windows for a nice finished look...
...and then we caulked and painted the whole thing! See way more details/photos and the rest of the projects in this kitchen by clicking through to my blog.

The next part of the project is installing open shelving in that nice blank area, but that's a different post for a different day!
