This woman had an idea that would never have crossed my mind: use the slats of a vertical blind to rebuild her kitchen backsplash!
What gave her the idea is that her slats are textured, as with a grain of wood. She said that with a little paint, she could give them the look of wood planks!
She cut her slats into several sizes and then stick them on the backsplash.
After gluing all the slats, she filled the holes with plaster and applied a layer of white paint.
Then she painted the slats in gray and she used a cloth to wipe the paint and give it the desired painted wood effect.
With some glue, plaster and paint, she now has a brand new backsplash that changes the look of the kitchen! Before throwing away your old blind, think about what you could do with it too!
