While browsing one of my favorite home improvement stores, Lowes. I came across the best product EVER. And, if I say so then you know it's true ;-)
I wanted to redo our back-splash but I knew I couldn't really fit it in my budget. Oh what am I saying we didn't even have a back-splash. This is what I was dealing with.
**OH YEAH...BE PREPARED THIS IS A LENGTHY POST BUT I PROMISE YOU WILL LOVE IT!
It really did need something. And, that something is AirStone. It's a natural very light weight stone that only uses putty and a hacksaw.
BEST PART: It was in my cheap budget.
Now we have to remember that "The Mr." is not handy so if he can do it anyone can. He laid out the stone, read them directions and was ready to go.
This is how simple this is. You cut the stone with a hacksaw or jigsaw.
Slap some putty on the back of the stone and press it up against the wall and WAA-LAA!!
This has been the easiest project that has had the biggest impact on our kitchen make-over. See the difference for yourself and you tell me?
Can I say we are in love with this stuff. I want to stone everything in my house...LOL
How's that for a quick transformation for you.
Oh yeah! We couldn't help ourselves and if you knew the deal you wouldn't have either. Am I a fan of stainless steel....the jury is still out on that one!!
Now let's take care of this side of the kitchen.
I'm working on new rugs. They should be here any day :-)
But, let's get back to work. This is all the tools we needed.
(Can you see my cute little under the counter lights...love).
You can see how easy it was to layout the stone. And, here's the finished project.
Now for some fun Before & After pics.
(Not sure why the color is so off on this one.
Must be my awesome photography skills)
Even though it was a bit long I hope that you are not only enjoying our kitchen transformation but that you are being inspired.
Just a few more projects left in the kitchen and then I will have a final reveal. If you missed any of the previous kitchen makeover posts, don't worry. I got your back.
And if you are new and haven't seen the new home before we started all this you can see it here.
We will have a new look very soon here at GGP so make sure you come back and visit.
Don't forget to....
