Check out our 'Splash

Another big thing that happened over the 4th of July weekend is that we finally finished the kitchen -and by finished the kitchen, I mean we finally had the backsplash installed. We stuck with the original mood board when it came to the tile selection. In fact, the only things we stuck to on there were the tile, the hood, and the pendants. We ordered our tile from here. Not quite as cheap as some tile stores, but they were nice enough to send us a sample of EVERY shade of green they had -which was close to 30 tiles! In addition, when we ordered a sample 12"x12" sheet, they suggested we send back the sample to swap out for one of the same lot of the final order in the event that the glass color might be slightly off. The green we chose perfectly matches our dining chairs and it really ties the whole room together.

Here is where I admit that I suck at measuring and we ordered WAY too much. The one downside of Susan Jablon Mosaics, is while they accept returns, they charge a 45% restocking fee, plus with shipping something so heavy back, it's just not worth it. -So you might just find some super nice subway tile on CL for a steal of a deal. If anyone's reading this and you're in the market for some dark lime green 1x3" subway tiles, feel free to contact me, and I'll let you know if we still have them. My guess is we have about 15 12x12" sheets, maybe more.
