Trailer Improvement – A Backsplash for the Kitchen

After two days of rain, the air felt fresher and cleaner. There are signs of spring all around: Lines of ants crawled on the trail, small lizards came out of their holes, honey mesquites grew a few green leaves, tiny reddish brown buds showed on the spiky ocotillos. Today the sun peaked out but it was cloudy and windy. So we installed the backsplash for the kitchen of our Escape trailer. We used Smart Tile, a peel and stick vinyl backsplash.

We started from the lower right corner of the wall and worked our way to the left. The hard parts were the curves around the window and the end of the left wall. I cut out paper templates for the curves, and traced the shapes of the curves on the tiles. Then I cut and peeled the titles and installed them to the wall. That worked very well.

Installing the backsplash was like solving a jigsaw puzzle. I had to cut the tiles to fit the area. There were only two tiles that were installed whole. For the last three areas at the end of the left wall, I had to find the perfect match. I cut out paper templates again and trimmed the tiles accordingly. The project took us about two hours. And we were happy with the final result. The backsplash made the kitchen homey and chic. Now we need to keep the clutter away and let the beauty shines.
