    I absolutely love how this looks and have wanted to do this in my kitchen on a couple of walls. Our theme is primitive country and I really believe it would be perfect. How does this hold up on the wall behind the sink with the moisture and possibility of water splashing on it? That would be a big concern for me.

    1. As long as it’s painted (not raw wood) and you don’t let water just sit on it, it’ll hold up great!

    This looks great and I’d like to try it! But…a question….my backsplash will also include my kitchen stove area. Do you think this would stand up to the heat? Especially when using the VERY hot self-clean?

    1. I can’t imagine that it would be an issue, but I’m definitely not qualified to say for sure! Generally, there’s a bit of a space between the stove and the wall behind it, so I’d guess that space would be enough to allow for some ventilation. But, I’m no professional so I’d suggest doing a bit of research before you commit!

    Was looking for a tutorial for installing beadboard, using beadboard sheets, to cover a plaster or drywall mud with a texture that looks horrid, and here you came. i didn’t want to sand or anything either, just cover the mess. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I am so impressed with your bead board back splash, I now know what I am going to do with our wall. thanks

    1. Glad it was an inspiration, Maryann! I’d love to see photos when you’re done! 🙂

    Great job,I think it looks amazing!

  6. I love this…..my husband keeps telling me I need to pick out tile for the back splash for when we do a DIY kitchen remodel…..but I’ve kept postponing it because I didn’t know what I wanted…..this would be so PERFECT. It’s a ranch style home, so it would go really nicely. We could update but still have that Texas ranch sort of feel to it at the same time. I can’t wait to see your open shelving, because that was already in our plans to do as well!

    1. I think it would look great! We’re in love with it in our kitchen! And yes, the open shelving is one of my favorite things we’ve ever done – can’t wait to share!

  7. Looks so good! I also like the dishwasher decorations 😉 #lifewithkids

    1. Haha, yeah I considered moving them but it ALWAYS looks like that so I figured I’d keep it real. 😉

  8. I did the exact same thing. My husband thought I was crazy too! Love it!

    1. Thanks! Glad I’m not the only one – my mom kept trying to talk me out of it…it was pretty funny! Luckily, now that she’s seen it she loves it too!

  9. This is a very cool look! Sadly, I don’t have the kitchen to do a similar project. But I’m definitely tackling a cabinet makeover soon, after seeing how much a coat of paint can make the room so different!

    1. It will change your life! I can’t even get over how different our kitchen looks with a little bit of paint. 🙂
