DIY Self-Stick Backsplash
2001 Ford F350
2012 Chalet DS116RB
We installed a beautiful backsplash in our truck camper kitchen and bathroom. This was very easy and utilized some very light, flexible, self-stick 10-inch square tiles bought on Amazon. Our goal was not only to improve the overall appeal of our camper, but also to allow for an easier splash or splatter cleanup in both areas.
After thoroughly cleaning the backsplash areas in both the kitchen and dry bath, the self-stick tiles were meticulously cut to size and stuck to the walls carefully. Once I had flattened the tile with my hands, I used a rubber roller to assure all the air bubbles were out from underneath and the tiles were completely adhered to the surface.
In total, I used twenty 10-inch by 10-inch self-stick tiles to do both the kitchen and bath to a height of 15-inches.
To see a complete video of the installation, you can watch my video:
The backsplash came out spectacular! The self-stick backsplash tiles not only improve the overall look of our kitchen and bathroom, but also allow for a much easier clean-up.
It took me six hours to complete this modification and cost me $60. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
