As you know I am updating my kitchen while maintaining a VERY tight budget. You can see the painted cabinets and the painted counter tops that i have done so far. Next it was time for the back splash. I loved the idea of painted tiles or bricks so I started experimenting. Painting Faux Bricks is fun and easy! Here is the simple tutorial.
Once it was painted and dried about a day I got out all the supplies to paint:
- Acrylic Craft Painted from Walmart (under $1 each) Grey, White and Black
- Paper plates
- Sponges (the Brillos ones work great) cut into sizes desired for bricks
I cut each sponge into brick sizes.
Then start applying. Add paint to sponge and firmly press into place. You can come up with your own pattern. I think scattered and random looks best.
Unfortunately my husband did not like the look so I had to prime and start over. SAD I KNOW! But I wanted to share these tips with you so you could do this awesome and very cheap wall treatment! You could do this anywhere! ENJOY!
