I used clear plexiglass, so that it all still matches the rest of the walls. I secured it with small brass screws and black plastic washers.

Here is a thread that I had posted of our Back-splash upgrade with BEFORE and AFTER photos.

Absolutely LOVE it and far less maintenance needed to keep those STUPID mirrors clean.

I agree with jack. Use standard application methods. Many rv's and MH have been doing this for years using standard applications methods. Go to your local big box store for a training classes and or a installation company they recommend.

It's been to Alaska and back to Texas. Alaska and Canada roads are NOT good.

They have not fallen and won't. Put on with thin set. They are fairly heavy. They come on matt backing. The center part comes in 12x12 sheets.
Here's a link:

Thank you for the link, I don't know where |I would find this tile, but there are lots of placees around and I am sure to find something.

You have used a sealer by DuPont and I want to know if this goes over the whole tile and grout to bring out the colours, is this something you could do on any type of material?

thanks for any information...

It's a sealer/enhancer and should be applied over everything evenly with a paint brush. A couple of coats.

We put these tile sheets in our Bighorn...they are half the thickness of regular glass tiles. Got them at Lowe's, I think.

They are applied using regular tile mastic and grout...lugged that rig around the country for years. Absolutely NO problems with the tile, wallboard, etc.
