Kitchen: Backsplash tile

Austin spent Labor Day finally putting up the tile back splash.  It had been delayed because the original vent hood arrived damage.  It took a while to get a replacement because it got left on a shipping dock in Des Moines for an extra week.  Then there was the small matter of having enough time to install it and the tile.

We used a natural limestone tile with coordinating mosaic tile for behind the cook top.  It turned out we could only get the tile in 18"x18" squares, so we had it cut down to 6" widths for an offset subway pattern on the wall with a custom-sized border around the mosaic.
