Used a different color of these in my kitchen and they look fantastic. I bought mine from Home Depot gel-like tiles that are peel and stick for an easy back splash. Easy to clean and tons of colors and options!
DIY - Glow in the dark pots with mums for fall/Halloween. Buy a flower pot that you really like and use Rustoleum's Glow-in-the-dark paint to paint the pot. During the day, the paint will absorb the sunlight and at night the pots will glow.
Afraid of tackling that kitchen remodel? We hear ya. It's no easy task, but there are some projects that you can complete in a short period of time and will provide a HUGE improvement. Like a backsplash.
