I don't even know why or how,
but not long ago, I had it stuck in my head that I just had to have a tile backsplash in my kitchen.
And you know me. Don'tcha.
I started looking. Searching. Investigating, if you will.
I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration:
because we all know by now that Pinterest is thee best, relevant, search engine out there.
(Oooh, that white subway tile is just like what Elena has in her kitchen! Lowe's sure does not have that fancy "stencil-y" tile. Holy frijoles!? They make glass tile now?? What the what?)
And then I walked up and down 'n up 'n down Lowe's tile aisles, studying and pricing things out.
And it's when I checked out the price tag for just one 12x12 tile mosaic, that I knew I was totally hosed.
Seriously? Seriously? Would I drop nearly $200 on a small, needless tile backsplash?
Couldn't I get this, at, say, a fourth the cost? Or an eighth? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK??
And then, it happened. One day, as I walked past the tile section:
there they were. Glass tile mosaics.
AT 90% PERCENT OFF.
Now! Ssssshhhh. Shush. Don't tell me you don't like this color scheme. Don't burst the bubble. Don't poop on the parade.
Because this project? Instead of nearly $200, it will now cost me under $20.
Yep-- a whole box full-- an entire project-- for less than what it costs me to feed the butt munches at McDonald's. So I don't care if people don't love it. Heck, I don't care if I don't love it.
Honestly, it's really, really totally got it going on with what's going on in my kitchen. Honest. And one day, when the whole kitchen gets a remodel, I'm not gonna cry about $15 of glass tile, knowhatI'msayin'?
And the hubs was all,
"So when are you gonna start this project, then?" With a raised brow.
Oh, in a week. Maybe a month or more. Or maybe tonight.
Yeah, I'm thinking maybe, like, now.
