Peel N Stick Backsplash / 7 Months Later...

Hey guys what's up it's Lacey and welcome back to my kitchen it's not often I film in here but it's been about seven months since I did the backsplash video and there has been so many questions and a lot of you guys want to see how it's doing now there are actually a lot of questions that have been repeated over and over so I wanted to make a video so not only could you guys see with your own eyes but hopefully I can answer some of your questions if you're hesitant about putting up the tea on sick backsplash tile one of the most frequently asked questions is how do I wash them and I clean mine with a wet cloth and some mild soap so they just clean right off there there's stuff on there so when you wash them and when you're cleaning them they're not going to move and there I'm going to come off and they're not going to lift which brings me to the next question are they appealing how are they holding up and let me tell you guys something that I learned from doing this make sure that you take all the caulking from the top of your counter off and make sure that it's straight and you have a very clean slate because that's one thing that I didn't do is mine that I wish I would have where the caulking is really thick they are starting to lift up a little bit but that's only because I didn't go in and remove that talking before putting the tiles down but I have a hack for that so if they are starting to lift and peel just take some e6000 glue put them on the tile and stick them back down and you're good to go throwing a lift and I'm going to peel as long as you have that used to traveling blue but ensure that it's not going to go anywhere and that's as far as what was here before are they apartment friendly personally I wouldn't trust them in the department because they are so strong that it will rip off your paint and maybe even the first layer of your wall someone in the comments and said that you could put like a protective layer on first and then put the backsplash on top of that so like wallpaper could be your protective layer and then put the peel and side backsplash on top of that and then maybe you'd like wallpaper glue or sort of glue that's not going to ruin your wall I know and the that I live in I always painted I just made sure that I painted it back to what it was before I lived in there I mean it's it's somewhere you're going to stay a while I don't see why not but you can always remove them and paint and fix up the walls that's how much time money and effort you want to put into your apartment another question was can you put them on tile and you can't put these on top of existing tiles so don't be freaked out and think that you have to remove your tile first and then put them on it'd be better to put them on on top of your tile is the heat from the stove they affect it I have had any problems at all whatsoever was the heat from my stove affecting my backsplash there's no looking and peeling over in that area so I don't have a problem with the walls getting hot how many sheets did I order I want to say I went back and looked at my Amazon receipt and I had purchased like $200 worth of tiles my kitchens pretty large I have like almost 200 square feet of backsplash area and each sheets ten by ten and then there were six sheets in each box so I purchased about eight boxes and that equaled up to be about $200 but my backsplash is a lot larger than ten inches so I had to use two or like one and a half I don't think that's a very bad feel at all so anyways I hope this answered all of your guys's questions if you guys have any other questions or concerns or comments or anything let me know down below and I'll answer them as soon as I can subscribe for more videos and DIY project I love to make stuff and share it with you guys for inspiration so thank you guys so much for watching and I will see you in the next video bye guys [Music]
