Wallpaper Backsplash d.i.y. part 2

I previously posted our little wallpaper backsplash DIY project hereAll that was left to do was paint.  But before I show you the final shots, I will show a little more of my kitchen.  I mentioned that one of the reasons I wanted to do this backsplash was because it was subtle.  We have a lot going on in there already!  I love my kitchen; it's cozy and colorful.  It's definitely not for everyone, but for me the color and craziness is just right!

Exibit A:  The window treatment fabric is one of the very first elements I added to the kitchen when we moved in over 2 years ago.  It was love at first sight and I knew it had to be mine!

Exibit B:  Gigantic canvas art, oodles of colorful pillows on the bench, a vintage pink crocheted runner, and a small collection of vintage candlestick holders. 

The chairs need to go!  I am constantly on the search for an affordable pair of these:
And finally, the finished product!  I couldn't seem the get the lighting right to get a good shot because I had too much light coming in with the roman shades open, then not enough if I closed them.  Hopefully you will be able to see the subtle backsplash!

See the cute little soap bottle on my sink?  Go here to find one for yourself!  My mom paints them :)

So there it is!  My budget friendly kitchen backsplash!
