Oh my god. Words cannot describe how thrilled I am with the backsplash. Steve worked on it from 7:30 this morning until 10:00 tonight and he got it finished. He fucking rules. He'll grout it tomorrow and then that wall will be finished. (The other wall will be done next weekend... maybe.)

Now that it's done, we're seriously considering buying more tiles and tiling above the cabinets where the baskets are. But that's still up in the air.

I wish you guys could see the actual tiles in person because these pictures don't do them justice. They are absolutely gorgeous in person. There are reds, and coppers, and silvers, and greens, and all sorts of other colors in them. And unfortunately, what the pictures don't pick up is the shine to them. They're slate (copper slate to be exact), but some of them truly look like metal because they have an irridescence/shine to them that makes them look like copper/pewter/etc.

I told Steve tonight that if I could tile an entire room using them, I would. LOL! I'll post more pictures tomorrow night if the grouting is done.

Friend of Emily's here.. hope you don't mind me butting in! I think your kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! And I agree about putting the tiles above the cabinets... I think that would really finish it off visually. And... your husband DOES rock! 7:30a-10p, that's dedication!

Thanks guys! I really am proud of Steve. Not bad for a guy who really hadn't ever done it before. LOL!

Brandy, thanks for stopping in! The more the merrier! And I agree... I've pretty much told Steve we need to tile up top too. LOL! I hope to see you around some more!
