The backsplash was taken out, replaced with a faux slate backsplash, and a new coat of paint on the walls.  Total expense not including labour $7.97.

Gorgeous. I love the changes, such a fabulous kitchen. It seems that some of the smallest changes can make the most impact. This is fabulous. Hugs, Marty
