Happy Tuesday!! Today I’m taking us back to the laundry room *full reveal here* to show you how I quickly installed the peel and stick marble looking backsplash. Spoiler alert: It was so easy!! *this post is sponsored by Brewster Home Furnishings. All words and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support House Homemade.
As you may remember, the cabinet in the laundry room originally had a sink. Therefore needed a backsplash. When I reached out to Brewster Home Furnishings, who I worked with on this sweet nursery, they were more than willing to send me their no grout peel and stick tile to try.
Since then, we decided against adding the sink back but I still wanted the little bit of detail that the marble tiling would bring. Not to mention how much better it would look than before.
Or don’t forget about the original before…. ewww.
Each package of the peel and stick tile comes with 4 10×10 panels. This project took 2 packages.
The tiles come with a clear sheet to protect the finish then a sheet on the back to cover the adhesive. They look like this.
Those black lines are added by me. It would have been way easier to just take a picture before I stuck one on the wall but I just GOT SO EXCITED! The picture below helps you to see it too. I had just trimmed this one for around the window sill, but see the white spaces at the bottom? Those are to be overlapped by the next sheet of tiles.
I chose to start on the outside edge of the cabinet. I trimmed the top and the left side of the sheet so that the outside edges would meet at a right angle.
They are so simple to put on and line up though, it was easy to mask the mistake. I used the unattached countertop as my level. I was able to pull the butcher block away and slightly overlap the counter with the tile. If you dont have a moveable countertop, you can just as easily line up the bottom grout lines with the edge of the countertop.
You can see in the picture above that the edge of the tile is unfinished because of the way the hex pattern is laid out. All I had to do was cut the edge of a scrap tile and fill in the missing pattern.
Our walls are paneling so I skipped the corner and filled it in later with the missing trim piece.
For this project I used scissors and an exacto knife. Both were easy to use and did a great job. Probably the utility knife is more accurate….just a little more likely to slice you open if you aren’t paying attention.
This wall took me about 20 minutes tops.
I love the way they look! Because our laundry space doesn’t have upper cabinets, It’s easier to
see how thin the tiles are and doesn’t help them to look as real as they
I think if they were used as a backsplash in a kitchen, where you couldn’t see them start or stop, they would look even more amazing.
They’re smooth and shiny. They reflect light and look so pretty.
They are a perfect addition to the space.
They would be great for someone that doesn’t want to get into actual tiling. They’d work well if you have a laminate backsplash that you’d like to cover. You know those pretty things I’m talking about? When a laminate back splash is the cherry on top of an old laminate counter top?
I’m actually thinking that when we move I could use these as a quick fix before a major overhaul. (No, we don’t have a house yet but I would never move into something that didn’t need updating. That’s no fun!)
Anyway, I could not love these tiles more. Thank you, Brewster, for working with me again and filling the walls of our laundry room with a little touch of shine and charm. What do you think? Have a space that could be made up by these cuties?
Thanks for reading, friends!
