Pegboard

A pegboard backsplash allows for extra storage as well as display space. The inexpensive panels are fastened to the walls, then hooks from the hardware store are used to hang utensils and kitchen gadgets.

Picture Frames

To make the photo gallery backsplash, a thin piece of plywood is covered in fabric, then picture frames are attached using hook-and-loop tape. The whole thing is then fastened to the wall with just a few screws.

Maps

Take this idea and run with it. We used maps, but you could use wrapping paper, comic strips, magazine covers, whatever. Cut a thin piece of plywood to the exact wall size, glue the paper on top, then apply shellac. When it’s dry, attach the plywood to the wall.

Recipes on Burlap

Burlap is used as a backdrop to display often-used recipes. You could also use quotes or poems in different languages. Torn paper bags can also be used instead of burlap.

Vinyl Tablecloth

A vintage vinyl tablecloth in a blue-delft pattern is used to make this charming backsplash. Again, the possibilities are endless as far as pattern and color, and the materials are very affordable.

Salvaged Wood

Salvaged molding and old boards add cottage style with plenty of texture. To make this backsplash, cut a thin piece of plywood to the exact wall size. All the molding is cut to size and attached to the plywood, then the whole thing is simply screwed to the wall.

And finally Picket Fence

To create wooden subway tiles, strips of picket fencing are painted white, then cut into small pieces. All the pieces are then attached to a thin piece of plywood, then the plywood is fastened to the wall.
These are all inexpensive ways of changing the look of your kitchen while we all wait for the weather to warm up.
