Painted Bathroom Backsplash

Once up on a time I found this pin for Moroccan tiles.

Could you not just drool over that all day?! The website says, “Each of these tiles is hand-made and hand-antiqued; a layer of stain is applied to the surface and the edges distressed to give an aged appearance.”
I didn’t even look to see how much they were. Right now the economy tile at Home Depot is out of my budget! But do you know what’s not? Paint. Especially found-it-in-the-garage-paint. And so, inspired by these painted back splashes, I did.


Isn’t it gorgeous!!!?
Ignore my paint clothes and the 3 burnt out light bulbs and just drool with me here for a second.
What’s that? you need a close up? Ok!


How’d I do it? I bought a roll of stencil making material and cut it out using my Cricut. It’s such a simple design that you could totally cut this out by hand though.


You can see where I cut the stencil and taped it back together with painters tape to get into the spaces I needed around the edges and the bottom. I used repositionable spray adhesive to hold the stencil up while I was using it. Spraying over a pizza box help not make my entire bathroom sticky.
And one more time burnt out bulbs, paint clothes, and all!


For the record I bought new CFL bulbs for the light fixture and they show off the “tiles” even more! It’s crazy amazing how beautiful they are in person! New pictures will have to wait though while I finish up all the other craziness I have going on right now!
