Creating a custom blend

yourself is c-r-a-z-y. Gibbering, hair-standing-on-end insanity, I tell you. Making the design look random (but not too random) while making sure that the colors are balanced throughout. I'm seriously thinking about fleeing to Home Depot and grabbing up some crackled cream subway tile.

We are not trained professionals. Do not try this at home.

To make matters more fun, it looks like we're just short on tiles. Last-minute road trip to New Hampshire with little kids! Because of the long weekend, we have to wait until Tuesday to find out if tiles are even available. Deep, even breaths. Whooo.


  1. Love, love, LOVE your kitchen! Sorry about the tile shortage, but it is going to look so good when it is done. I didn't have the imagination to see this kitchen in this state, and it is a beauty! You inspire me!

  2. Oooh you are so brave! Designing your own backsplash *and* tile shopping with kids! That has to be on their top five "things I hate" list. the backsplash up?

  3. Thanks so much, DeniseMarie! I second guess my choices all the time so it's reassuring to hear that things are coming together well.

    Deva, brave or crazy. I'm leaning towards crazy at the moment. Backsplash is not up yet. Well. A bit is up with painters tape. As my husband says, who needs mastic?
