After doing my son's school area, I had to do the kitchen too! 

These are 8x8 and my mom picked the colors (its her house!)

Oh I love this. How do you stick it? And do you put anything over the paper to protect it?

I used 2 sided sticky squares, they are the thin kind and come on a roll in a green box.  They were easy to use b/c they pop out of the box one at a time.  I used one on each corner of the paper except where the counter curves I used a whole bunch. 

Nothing over it, its under the edge of the bar counter thing and people dont sit there often actually. 
I figured if any of the squares get messed up, they are easy to replace!  (I do have an almost 3yr old running around!)

It looks beautiful but I would definitely want to seal it with something. Over time I would think the edges would begin to curl and it would lose something.

Anyone think ModgePodge would work on something like this?

a couple squares have done this (its humid!), I just stuck more tape on it.  We are re-doing the kitchen cabnets at some point so thats why I havent tried to make it more permanant yet.
