The kids decided, on the spur of the moment no less, that it was time to add a backsplash to the kitchen of their recently built new house. It was one of those lazy Saturday mornings, we're all hanging out in our jammies, Paige and Will, the kids, dogs and cats lounging around doing nothing in particular. Paige looks over at the kitchen and murmurs, almost to herself, something about a backsplash would be nice to have in there. The next thing I know, before I could even blink, we're at Home Depot discussing the merits of various backsplash materials, (well, the kids are, *I* am in the plant section showing my grandson how pretty the flowers are.....no surprise there, right?) Shopping for the backsplash tile, and while we're there I suggested we get mulch for the garden....shhhh, don't tell them I had an ulterior motive for coming along! And so it begins Love this baby-wearing Mama! Having an infant sure wasn't going to stop my daughter from being in there pitching doing her share of the work! They're getting there! (Note: The color of the backsplash is distorted by the under cabinet light. The true color, which is a lovely compliment to the granite, is what you see on the far left, above the sink area. Grouting in progress Not quite finished, (still needs a line of caulk) but functional and attractive..and again, the colors aren't true in the picture. The tile and the granite compliment each other perfectly! They did a good job for a couple of amateurs.
