Live Pretty on a Penny: DIY Subway Tile Backsplash Reveal!!!

DIY Subway Tile Backsplash Reveal!!!

Monday, October 10, 2016




Hey guys and happy reveal day! So if you have followed along for a while, then you know that I have been working on my kitchen for the last few months with some updates to our backsplash, lighting, new countertop, and flooring.

To see more about my plans, click here.

But here it is in a nutshell...


So I would have to say that the kitchen is about 98% done! So close! But in the meantime, I wanted to share my backsplash reveal with you guys. It was definitely a labor of love, but I would not trade the experience and the outcome for anything. FYI, I kept the photos pretty tight in range because I didn't want to reveal too much of the kitchen just yet!



The original backsplash was a ceramic square tile that we had laid in a diamond pattern. I went with something that flowed with the original countertop. Although from day one, I knew that I wanted to replace it. The old counter and tile made the kitchen feel so dark.



But am so glad that we went with something simple and bright as the white subway tile.














I will be back on Thursday with a full video tutorial on how you can install this tile yourself. I promise you that its not as difficult as you think. I did everything myself, but the cuts, which I let my husband handle on the wet saw.

Until next time!

  1. Your backsplash looks great, Erin! I'm going to be on the lookout for your video tutorial because I'm planning on redoing my kitchen area as well. Planning stages right now. I do want to know if you replaced your countertops before or after you tiled the backsplash. Thanks and keep up the good work. :-)
