Kitchen backsplash is DUNZO!!!  Yay!!  Aaaahhhh, you have no idea what a relief this is!  First, because it took us close to a year to decide on a design.  Call me crazy, but wasn't going to pay the kitchen installers $1500 just to DESIGN the backsplash!  Hubby and I know what we like so it was just a matter of time until we found something we liked...lots of time...but still.  Problem was, we had such a huge space above the cooktop.  Didn't want just squares, but didn't think I was a mural kinda gal.  Until...

So here's the old cucina before...

and here's the afterrrrrrrrrrr...
but wait...there's more...

just one more, I swear...
Please to enjoy the detail around the window sill!  Mitered corners!  My quilting sistas will tell you that is NOT easy!

Ok, you may return to your previously scheduled lives.  Thanks for listening!  :)
