DIY Herringbone Faux Backsplash - Click for tutorial! Subway tile is one of the most traditional, beautiful tiles out there. We love how there are a ton of wonderful options to pick from. You can pick from a selection of tile and grout colours and the possibilities for patterns are endless! I’m a renter and unfortunately, I am not capable to include a tile backsplash at our present rental house. However, I have been offered the “go-ahead” to paint, so I’ve truly had to get inventive with paint to update the residence and include my personal type into this otherwise cookie cutter house. I made the decision that painting a faux backsplash was the ideal way to get this search in a rental and on a budget. This whole undertaking fees less than ten dollars and appears like a million bucks!

Repeat, moving down vertically right up until you attain the bottom of your wall.
