Peel and Stick Kitchen Backsplash & DIY Kitchen Reno Progress

This post was sponsored by Tic Tac Tiles, all thoughts and opinions are my own!

I’m so excited to share with you guys the progress in our budget diy kitchen “reno!”

The Before :

To be completely honest when we first moved into the house I swore up and down I wasn’t going to touch the kitchen. I really wanted to wait until we could do a full renovation. Waiting is not my strong suit though 😂 and the paint job on the cabinets was so bad it was literally peeling off everytime I cleaned them. So I decided to paint them and of course I couldn’t stop there! I needed new hardware and really wanted to try a peel and stick backsplash!

I’m so happy I went with Tic Tac Tiles Peel and Stick 3D Wall tiles for a few different reasons but I’ll get more into that later in this post!

After :

Here’s what we’ve been able to finish and what still needs to be done :

Painting the cabinets!

This was the biggest project but a pretty easy one. I used regular flat latex paint and just painted with a brush. I personally chose not to sand because we will most likely be getting new cabinets in the next few years anyways and wanted to keep this quick and easy. Flat paint hides imperfections really well so I had faith it would still look nice and wasn’t dissappinted! I chose a two tone look because I figured now was the time to have a little fun with it!


The hardware has made a huge difference in this space. I got some great budget friendly pieces on Amazon here.


My absolute favorite change to this space was the backsplash ! I absolutely love diy projects that don’t cost alot of time or money but still make a huge impact and this is exactly what Tic Tac Tiles provided.

I chose them because of the great reviews and availability on Amazon. I mean who doesn’t love the convienence of ordering on Amazon? I also loved that they had just a plain white subway tile with a nice gloss which is exactly what I was looking for.

Install was very simple and took less than an afternoon! It really is just cutting, peeling and sticking. I used an exacto knife and had my husband help stick it up.

The key to a good stick is to make sure the wall is completely clean and free of any type of residue!

The subway tile looks amazing, espescially for the price and is also holding up phenomenonally! It wipes clean super easy and I have had 0 issue with any peeling off or water getting underneath. Tic Tac Tiles are also anti-mold.

Tic Tac Tiles offers a variety of different backsplash options which can all be found here.

What we have left to do :

Faucet and sink – I may hold off on these until we can do a bigger renovation but would really love to at least switch out the faucet!

Light Fixtures –

I want to add a chandelier above the island or some brass globe pendants.

Counter tops – I’m planning on doing a diy paint job on the cabinets!

Even though we still have work to do, I am loving our new brighter, cleaner space!
