having a senior moment

Hello.I believe someone on this site posted a picture of a modification by placing vinyl-looking squares on the wall of the galley I think they were black and white stick-em squares on a Shasta travel trailer. I cannot find that post. Can anybody help me with this? Thanks!

They have that tile backsplash at Lowes.

I went with the larger Fasade heat resistant panels held on with double sided tape. Mine is copper colored and goes well with the interior.

This is my old 5er. Smart tiles is what I used. There are several brands out there now.

Tomorrow the DW is planning on installing the adhesive backed tiles we purchashed at Lowes. She liked the looks if the tiles and she is tired of cleaning the wallpaper behind the sink and stove, which is very difficult to get clean. Hope it works out cause they sure are expensive for what you are getting.

No it's smart tiles. I discovered there was more trimming involved than i thought. The fingers that overlap...some of the ends covered too much for me, so I cut the grout off the ends of them to ensure they didn't show.
It is pretty easy. Get a razor/exacto knife, a cutting board and a metal straight edge. Take your time and you can do it. There are lots of videos about it. I have a trailer on order and will do it when it comes in. I did the backsplash in the bath as well.
There are other brands that are cheaper, but I have no experience with them. The smart tiles are small too. Like 10 x 11 or something.

Search stick on backsplash in Amazon. It will keep you busy for a while.

Smile senior moment

We used clear mac tac in our unit. I could keep the finnish that was in there and yet clean easily around the stove walls.

Hate to tell you this, but installing tiles isn't going to keep it clean... someone still will have to clean it!

But, the tiles will be so much eaiser to clean than the wallpaper, don't you think😕, that is the reason the tiles are going up.
