That looks great! The dry-brushing and distressing made all the difference. Love your corbels -they really make the middle cabinet look like a piece of furniture to me. Now…get to work- why are you sitting there reading this? You know there is work to be done- (oh-wait-I am channeling my mother-never mind) – xo Diana
I love how it turned out honey! Don’t worry, procrastinating is worth it many times, as it happened to me with my laundry room…I kep on saying I will put some cabinets atop the washer and drier until a month ago. lol..Your corbels are great, the perfect finishing touch. Enjoy your week and finish off what you started, NO turning back now!FABBY
Love the distressed blue and the corbels look nice, too. Nice old scale.
How fresh and pretty! The soft blue is so refreshing and different. I really like it I bet after the red, the white was too white. I know exactly what you meant.
We just installed hearth tiles today. We bought them in February. (we are pretty good at procrastinating too) lol
I like it! I like to attend your procrastination workshop, but I just can’t seem to remember to sign up….so some time this week maybe?!?!
Barb,This looks great! I love that shade of blue and how you distressed it! I’m loving that scale too!
Amazing! Love it!
It looks great, Barb! I never would have guessed how you did that brick backsplash, & I love the color!
I’ve used the brick paneling too, love it. You did a fantastic job! I wouldn’t have thought about painting it blue though. And the distressing, perfect! I just love your home
I love it! The corbels look awesome.
Beautiful, Barb! I love the corbels! I’ve been thinking of trying that myself, but, well, I’ve been procrastinating. : ) Although, actually I prefer to say “I’m thinking on it”.
Love the new color and corbels…!!!
Barb, it looks fabulous. I like the soft blue you used and the distressing looks wonderful. Your corbels are so pretty. They add a ton of character. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
Your kitchen looks great with the blue accents. I love how your kitchen keeps getting better and better over time. My Breakfast Room is the same way…I keep adding little touches which make it better than before.
You are so smart, Barb. I just love it! Now I can’t wait to see the rest of it.
Wow, it looks great. So custom looking. Good work.Blessings Paula Lusk
This looks great! I love the color and the corbels you added.
Barb I loved it white but I love it even more with that pretty shade of blue and the distressing! The corbels finish it off perfectly!! That whole area looks beautiful!
Barb, I really like the touch of blue on the bricks in your kitchen. So, so pretty!Mary Alice
Beautiful blues! Corbels look great….worth the wait…for sure!
So cool! Seriously, aren’t you happy?! You should be.
I’ve been a bad blog friend. Life has been busy, but good. I did finally post something a night or two ago and I’ve promised myself I will get back to blogging. It’s important to me.
Hi Barb! Loooooooove it! Oh, it just looks wonderful. I loved your kitchen when it was red but I really do love it white. The pretty blue on the bricks looks so nice and I do love me some corbels! Procrastination is my middle name by the way! Be a sweetie,Shelia
Love the addition of the corbels. The color and distressing mad a huge difference and has big impact.
LOVE the blue distressed look…what a huge difference it made in there.
It looks perfectly dreamy. Visiting from Wow. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/08/make-it-pretty-monday-week-11.html Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
It’s just gorgeous! In fact every single thing about your kitchen is gorgeous – I’m seriously in love with it!Your newest follower, would love to have you come by and follow back when you have the timeHugs,
It looks amazing! Love your crisp kitchen Greetings from Australia♥~Pernilla
the faux brick makes such an impact! I might have to add it to our kitchen, since we have no backsplash!
I love it! You did a fabulous job creating one-of-a-kind backsplash! I love how your white pieces pop against it, too!
Hi, this is really beautiful. The distressed color is amazing. I am just wondering how it got from the brownish color to the blue by simply sanding. Did I miss something?
I love your faux brick back splash….take a bow!
You have mentioned the paint colour, ‘cottage blue’ a few times in your blogs, and I really do love the shade. Which company makes this paint, please, and what was the finish used? Thank you.
Phyllis – it is called Summer Cottage Blue and I think it is made at Lowe’s. Let me pull the paint can to confirm. I am one of those that change my paint colors so often I can never remember.
It looks great. What is the brick dimension? It looks wider than standard brick.
Love your Kitchen! I am fixing to paint my caninets a creamy off white! I also love love love the faux brick & have looked everywhere but Lowe’s :^} for this didn’t even think about them having it. So thank you so very much! Was meant to find your blog! I have a very small kitchen & no backsplash & I wanted the brick. I can’t wait to get started! Blessings! :^]
Beautiful! I love how the color and distressing make such a difference in the brick backsplash! Lovely kitchen all around! Hugs, Leena
Hello! I am getting ready to paint my faux brick in my kitchen. What is the process to paint them? (Did you use a primer? if so, what kind? was there a certain paint finish? did you use rollers or brushes?) Thank you!
I cant find this type of wallboard anywhere… is there a name I should be looking for!? YOur kitchen looks great. Wonderful! I was planning on doing subway tile, but this would be easier and cheaper! Sometimes procrastination pays off!
Hi Allison – sorry behind on answering my comment questions. I have only been able to find it at Lowe’s. Its available in the paneling section. I love mine.
Oh my goodness!!!! You gave me a wonderful idea, I bow to you. We have been trying to decide what we can do with our backsplash, we have none, just a painted wall. Tile seems to, cliché and expensive, I thought of Wainscoting but I am loving the brick look, it would fit my French Country look I’m trying to go for. Thanks for the tips!!!!
You are so welcome. I love my backsplash. I made some mistakes installing mine. Just make sure you don’t try to scrimp and buy an extra sheet if neceesary so you can match up the bricks exactly. (I thought I could spackle it to blend) The first time I painted I used latex paint. I went back behind the sink where I get the most splash and painted an oil-based product.
BTW, this product is only available at Lowe’s as far as I can tell. And its in the paneling section, fyi. Good luck, let me know when you have it in. Blessings, Barb
I love this idea! this is exactly what I wanted to do! I have to wine though, those panels at Lowes Canada are $50 per 4×8 sheet! I also want to do a small wall at the top of my stairs.
I need help with mine. I bought a house with 2 of the panels in my kitchen and they are the white washed. I love the color and I love the look, but they left a HUGE seam in them! OUCH! What an eyesore. Any suggestions? It is so terrible but I want to keep it so bad!
Kelly, you should be able to caulk the seams some. Even mine are noticeable if you look real close. I just kept adding caulk, letting it dry, and adding more caulk until I thought it blended pretty well. Make sure you use a paintable, latex caulk. I used the kind in a tube with a caulking gun. Hope this helps. ~barb
Thanks! We were considering having the wall completely redone but maybe I can disguise it somehow. Yours look great!
Ok, one more thing, sorry. I can see the seam in the top one that is all white. ONLY because I know it is there!! What kind of paint did you use for the white? was it the chalkboard kind that goes on really thick? Mine are white washed and I am thinking about just distressing it and dry brushing more white. But I kinda like the look of the glossy, thick white also.
I have a faux brick panel behind my oven and have always hated it. It’s pink(ish). I started painting different bricks red with the idea of dry brushing white or off white sometime over all of it, but as a fello procrastinator, never got as far as the white. THIS is a much better idea and so pretty. I think I’ll have to make myself try this. It can’t be any worse than it is now. Thank you!
I really love your kitchen redo. The faux brick wall and patina job you did looks just amazing. Nice shade of blue also. Just found your blog by way of Pinterest, so now I have to snoop around at your other posts. Looking forward to seeing more of your home.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
