Backsplash Is Up! (2 1/2 Years Later)

Woo hoo!  You read that right!  It only took us 2 1/2 years to get around to having our kitchen backsplash tiled. But I ended up with tile that I really love.  There's the silver lining to that cloud!  While the hubby was recently out of town for 10 days (read about my scardy cat self here), I surprised him by having the backsplash tiled.  A big thank-you to my parents for being our financial backers and paying for the project for us as a gift.  : )

Here's what the kitchen looked like when we first moved in...

Here's what it looked like as we started the remodel process.  What a mess!

More pictures along the way...

Here is the kitchen finished minus the backsplash...

And here's the kitchen with the recently completed backsplash!

I found the tile here on Overstock thanks to a tip on Abode Love, one of my favorite blogs.  Check out pictures of her beautiful kitchen here

Do my Wayman Family Nesters have projects that go on like this?  That are one step away from being finished?  Please tell me I'm not the only one!
