DanB .... Are they actually glass? It is great you could cut with scissors. The metal ones we used required a mitre saw.

Not glass, I think they are made out of recycled cafeteria jello. (Or maybe just a soft plastic......)

The sticky felt OK. I'm more concerned about how they do over the winter.

Best part is they are very light.
These look great, and we're considering something similar. Now that winter is over, have they stayed stuck?

Funny you should ask! Last week my wife, you is a 20 year employee at Lowe's, inspected the tiles. She tends to do this to better advise customers.

Happy to report that they all look good! No issues at all.

Are these backsplashes still looking good after a couple of seasons? Interested in backslashing my Classic bathroom.

I went with more aluminum for the bathroom backsplash.

My tile still look like the day I put it on. I haven't had any sagging.

DanB, are these just stick on tile from a big box home improvement store.

Was it easy enough to remove the wallpaper border?

Any prep other than clean the backboard?

Did the tile fit underneath the wall panel trim gaskets?

Did you add a trim between the tile and the counter surface or just run a bead of caulk?

Thanks

Kelvin
