Plastic Plate Backsplash

add plates backsplash Plastic Plate BacksplashI painted my kitchen cabinets over a year ago (still need to write a blog post about that!). My dream is to eventually replace the laminate counter tops with butcher block, and add white subway tile backsplash with dark grey grout. But it’s not in the budget. And may not be for a few more years. So a plate backsplash will have to do.

So for now, I thought I would add some (cheap) interest to my backsplash, by adding some plastic plates that I picked up at Target this week. You can find these plates for $1-$2. Target always seems to have lots of them available during the summer season.

    • Yeah not sure it would have worked for regular plates but these were just the small plastic plates. So even if they do eventually fall off the wall,they won’t break.

    • Wow that is such a compliment coming from you Kelly! I’m totally in love with your house, especially your kitchen! Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave such a sweet comment.

  3. Cute Danielle! I love your work-with-what-you-have approach to the backsplash. It looks great and was cost effective so that you won’t cry WHEN you take it down to put in that white subway tile!

  4. Cute Danielle, I saw that ikat plate at the new target up here… such a pretty pattern. Your little silhouette embellished ones are awesome too. Love the blue on your lower cabinets. We have peeling melamine cabinets… I need to deal with them soon. I bought a pale teal/blue for the lowers and was going to white on the uppers. Feel a little more confirmed in my choice now that I see how cute yours look! Love your little fabric curtain too – such a pretty (Amy Butler?) print!! I love your taste:)

    • Ah thanks so much Krista. Yeah I really need to do a post on my kitchen. I did it before I had a blog so I don’t really have good before pictures plus my kitchen is never clean enough to take after pictures :). The fabric for the curtains is from Heather Bailey, I love her fabrics. I totally love having the white uppers and blue bottom cabinets. I like to change things up so much that I’ll only have to change the bottom cabinets if I get sick of the blue colour. Can’t wait to see your kitchen makeover!
