My 4th of July Kitchen project

After reading Easie Peasie's dollar store back splash I sent off to do my own.  I looked at my big lots and dollar store and no vinyl tiles :(  So I broke down and bought a box at Lowes for $23.00, plus a $2.00 utility knife and set out to make my kitchen look fancy (already had the dremel thanks to hubby)!

BEFORE:

Took all the stuff off the walls, cleaned them and got to work... with a fresh beer, ;)

Lots of measuring cutting made for a slow job

But it was worth int in the end....

AFTER:
It took me most of the weekend, some of the tiles had to be re-glued with some liquid nail.  But all in all it came out rather well if I don't say so myself!

Here is the entire kitchen after the transformation (including a new hood and switch plates which were NOT in the $25 tile budget)...
