I usually try to keep our backsplash updates over on our S/E Backsplash Website, but this most recent one we painted was a little different… and we think deserves a shout-out! Brenda’s getting her house all gussied up to put it on the market, and naturally she brought us in to do our thing in her kitchen! We were a little nervous about painting over a darker ‘grout’ line:
Brenda wanted long and skinny staggered horizontal tiles… needless to say, the taping took us awhile.
But once we got to the painting, it went real fast! And after removing the painter’s tape, we revealed this beautiful and modern… yet subtle backsplash!
The gray grout line ended up being gorgeous!
Doesn’t it really look like tile? It’s amazing what you can do with a sponge brush and a couple tubes of acrylic paint!
If you’re new to our blog, you can see many of other backsplashes we’ve painted here, or visit our S/E Backsplash website to learn more about how it all works!

Thank you for this idea. I just finished. Yes it is time consuming and I was bot pleased until the tape came off. I love it. It changes the whole room.

Yayyyyyyyyyy! I need to see pictures! Can you email me at email@example.com
I’m going to try this on my kitchen! Do you seal it with anything after painting? Can I just use craft paint or do I need to use wall paint for durability? Thanks!
Bethany Sy says
You can just use acrylic craft paint! And when you’re done, seal with PolyCrylic (the water-based version of polyurethane).
Oh my goodness, that is stunning! I sure wish you were in Colorado! I’ve got a backsplash just crying out for you. Beautiful work…you guys should be very proud!
Oh my that is crazy gorgeous! I love that it looks like natural stone. Great job!

Just saw the brick one…I did that on the basement cement floors one time. But this backsplash is outstanding. I sure hate your word verification. Gotta stop making comments because of it.
Love , love , love it! You guys were the ones who inspired me to paint my backsplash last year, now i want a change. Might just have to try this one bc we are getting ready to paint our kitchen/dining/ great room a grey color similar to this. Great job!
