Backsplash Remodel

Well, finally took the plunge. We removed the mirrored backsplash behind the stove, included a second mirror (of 3) that were surrounding the kitchen counter area. Originally we thought to use tile, maybe the fancy glass mosaic, but in considering the weight we decided to go with a product call Fascade. It's a lightweight plastic, uses a very aggressive tape adhesive and looks like the old pressed tin squares. Total project cost was about $75. We brought a package of the "outlet cover" material that matches around the edges for blending. All items were purchased at Lowe's Home Center. We used the Bermuda Bronze, felt it better complimented the countertops and wood. Project time, (not including thinking about it) was about 3 hours. Measured 3 times, used masknig tape for "dry run".

Great looking job! I did a back-splash behind our stove. I had looked at the product you used but was unsure about heat so I installed tempered, mosic glass tile. I was worred that the tile would fall off from movement as we went down the road so I used a rubberized material (wish I could remember the brand name) that was self-stick and, a mastic called Bondera (comes in a roll with non-stick on both sides so one can remove one side - press against the rubberized material-remove the other side, and press the tile into it). It can be grouted at that time. So far (700 miles) it has held up. Wish I had pictures. Cost was about $400 and 4 hours of my labor (cost of labor $0 - and worth every penny). I think I have posted this somewhere else, also - if so, please forgive me.
