The Backsplash AFTER: While a backsplash was not at the top of my “want” list, there was a huge space behind the sink and the stove that begged for something. Megan came up with the genius idea of a large mirror. “The mirrored backsplash bounces natural light from the dining room and creates the illusion of a bigger and brighter space,” she says. “I painted the frame the same color as the wall to give it a built-in look.” Plus, I get to gaze at my chandelier when I am doing something as dull as peeling carrots.
