For those of you who are sick of the kitchen talk, my deepest apologies. I wanted to do a follow up blurb about the backsplash in our kitchen, as many of you asked for the details. But it feels too long ago to just to a blurb so now I have to make it a whole post.

The tile is called Bevel Hampton Sand and comes in various sizes. My parents have the 3×6 individual tile and looks more like the standard size subway, as you can see in the above photo. We have the 2×4 tiles that come mounted on mesh. Both tiles have a crackle finish, but I think you can get it without that.

A big thanks to my Dad for keeping a record of the tile details. I’m such a kid. I’ve been calling it “bisque mini-subway crackle”. That is so not the name of it. If you are new around here and want to know what the mini subway tile looks like, check out this post from last month about our kitchen redo.bevel-hampton-sand

Edie @ Life in Grace is doing a Linky today for us to share our painted wood projects and I’m linking my painted cabinet post to her party. And y’all? You should see her painted kitchen cabinets. Three words: Vintage. Darling. Home. And fabulous is my extra-credit word. If you have any wood you’ve painted, share your project over at her place. But at the very least go over, see her kitchen and be inspired.


Don’t forget to link up tomorrow for Tuesdays Unwrapped!
