So over three years ago I did this. The first picture is of the guard over my sink.
Recently we developed a roach problem when some neighbors moved in. Previously the apartments were empty for over a year. So Between the exterminator and Raid I have gotten the problem controlled. However, the splash guards could have been harboring bugs. They weren't as the double sided tape killed anything near it but they are showing some serious wear and tear. The one over the sink has fared better but the one over the stove, well it needs work. So what do you think? Fix? scrap? Go to Lowes and by back splashes at $20+ a pop? Would love to know if anyone else did this, how they did it and if it is in good shape some years later.
Here is a now picture with them off the wall on the floor.
Notice the missing pieces and grease on the cards my little butt couldn't reach on a regular basis to clean.
P.S. all the cards were donated from either friends and loved ones or the local Hollywood video that closed down down the street from me. I have new ones from friends to replace the lost ones if I decide to go that route.
