Dollars & Decisions

Amanda Bar

After going back and forth over my options for several days I eventually decided upon a tile selection for my kitchen backsplash.  I ended up choosing my first choice - a glass tile in a "milk white" color that resembles an oyster shell.  The only picture I could find on the internet looks blue-ish in hue:

The tile is $17 a sq. ft. (more expensive than I wanted to spend), and with the grout the total came to $520.  I don't have an estimate on installation costs yet, but I'm hoping that I can get a deal through the same woman that hooked me up with my kitchen cabinets.  I've already placed my order for the tile but it'll take about 15 business days for the shipment to arrive (curse you, special order!).  In the meantime I can cool my heels with smaller & less costly side-projects.
