Wow, just wow!  Thanks for the info on the backsplash behind the stove, that is my favorite part.  It really looks fantastic.

Absolutely beautiful! We also have a 1930s house and are trying to be all cutsey with it  Wink Two questions though: can you just glue the backsplash to existing tile (that's in good shape) or do you have to rip that out? Also, did you paint the insides of your cabinets also or just the facings/doors?
Thanks!

Thanks so much! Being cutesy with old houses is way easier than being cutesy with new houses Smiley

As for the backsplash, we put ours right on top of the old Formica, and unless your tile is bumpy/uneven, there's no reason that you shouldn't be able to just stick up the new backsplash right over it.

And we only painted the outsides of the cabinets (shhh, don't tell anyone else). But seriously, we just really didn't feel like it and it seems kind of unnecessary. I'm an impatient person though, so I don't know how much stock you should put into that.

Good luck!

I think i may have nightmares about that formica.  But the new tile?  Wow.  This is gorgeous.... the backsplash looks like an old tin ceiling.

That is freakin' fantastic. You should be on the TLC or HG TV!  You have great taste and the result is absolutely fantastic.  It is hard to tell it is the same kitchen.

I love the inviting feeling it has now. Kitchens are a big hangout in my family and this one fits the bill!
