So as you know I have been working on a few DIY projects around the house. I finished painting my countertops in June and it turned out better than I ever expected. Here is an update on the countertops. I have noticed that the countertops are really holding up with the top coat they are very durable. My only con is that if water is left on the counter top for too long it will get a ring and the appearance is lighter than the rest of the countertops, this usually disappears after a few hours and it returns to the normal colors. Other than that is is beautiful. If you decide to paint your countertops which at this point I am recommending; than it is advised that you use at least 5 to 7 coats of top coat to finish them off.
Now back to the backsplash for the kitchen. I have been wanting to do a copper backsplash and I am reviewing a few different options. I need a little help deciding which one will best fit my small kitchen. I mean TINY kitchen.

- Installing a traditional copper tin backsplash is very pretty and really economical. The prices ranging from $7 for 14 tiles or $17 for 16 tiles, so depending on the area you like to tile it would to cost too much to do for a backsplash. In my kitchen I think about $250 to do.

I think I will make the decision with my readers help. Please cast your votes in the comments section of this post which option you would prefer. I will tally up all the votes of my readers and then post pictures of the finished project in a few weeks. Please don't hold back on all your comments, I would really like to hear your honest options on all the options that are listed.
