Our IKEA farmhouse sink is finally in, over at the Dutch colonial!
See for yourself:
While I like that sink + (a little bit less) that faucet,
I love my choice of back splash tile!
They are 3″ x 6″ subways with a crackled gray glaze.
Home Depot, online.
Perfection — the way they complement all my design choices!
There’s a problem with the size of my tiles
as they relate to the size available for our back splash.
We would end up with a row of tile slivers, to fit the space,
and nobody wants that.
ON TO PLAN B!
My mind immediately raced to the oh-so-cute penny rounds.
In addition to their being super charming,
they are very vintage style, which is just the ticket!
After a somewhat lengthy online search last night,
I found them in the color I desire — gray!
Beautiful, ’tis true, but I fear they’re too busy for our kitchen.
They’d clash with our semi-busy counter tops:
So. After yet more online searching,
I finally found penny rounds in a solid gray!
Our grandlad G.O. immediately nixed the idea,
as he claimed small mosaic tiles like that are very difficult to install.
So is it on to Plan C?
Or will I get my penny rounds?
