Metal tile kitchen backsplash almost finished.

Here are a few more pictures. I have one small wall section to complete this project. Things I have learned during this episode. Even though, the self sticking tile glue appeared to be very strong, I did find a couple of tiles which had fallen off of the wall. So I did and do what they suggested in the installation instructions. I am adding a little bit of Liquid Nail adhesive. It adds another 25 seconds to the work and I hope it is worth it. Cutting the radius in the tiles around the windows was tough. I wasted quite a few pieces before I got it half way right. You NEED A ROUTER for those pieces.
But, now it is done and it looks great. More photos to follow. https://picasaweb.google.com/ronald....eat=directlink
Cheers,
Ronald

Excellent work and thanks for taking pics and sharing!

I love that stuff and added it when I replaced my kitchen sink with a residential size composite. Here's the thread and some pics. Anyone Tried "Aspect Metal Tile" Yet?

I went with a herringbone pattern and like the looks but it sure results in a lot of waste when done in a small area. Next is the bathroom back splash that I'm going to continue up around the top of the shower.

I put a couple of good coats of Kilz primer on for a base and used Liquid Nails from the get go. I've put about 12,000 miles on the rig since and nothing has moved.

Thanks again.

Rick
