Pebble Backsplash



It dawned on me that I haven't really posted any close up photos of our pebble backsplash or photos to prove we actually did finish our crown moulding!



I love our beadboard with the pebble backsplash. I have not had any regrets that we didn't tile and the painted surface is holding up perfectly after two years, even by the sink.



I sealed the pebbles with about four coats of regular tile/grout sealer (which reminds me, I should do a touch up soon) and have not had anything not wipe right off. I tape up a fancy paper towel curtain when I'm cooking anything with tomatoes or if Mr. CF is cooking bacon. Of course I don't use the back burners when this is up.

I think the backsplash ended up costing about $80 for the rock, grout & sealer. The fellow that put them up also installed our countertops, scroll down for photo here, so that cost wasn't figured in to the $80. A very reasonable alternative to tile and I love the look.
