Love these rooms! I don't have a problem with using floor tiles as back splashes - I think it looks nice.
The more people become honest about their financial constraints, the more we will accept people will reveal their true colors. What I mean is, the backdrop works because it looks good, coordinates and is practical. Everything it was before, just that now more people are willing to listen.
It works. I don't think I would do it in the kitchen but I like it in the bathroom.
i like what cutclothe said.i've seen thid done on hgtv and thought it quite clever.
Live the life you dream about...I dare you.
