We received a press release about a practical do-it-yourself kit that helps you install a mosaic backslash in your home the easy way. Here is the information we were sent: “The DIY Network Backsplash Kit is an innovative ready to use tile kit for home improvement. The kit, focused on the remodeling of the kitchen backsplash, includes all the tools necessary to install 15 sq/ft glass mosaic backsplash in two hours or less. The DIY Network Backsplash Kit utilizes a new peel and stick technology specially designed for glass mosaics and a pre-mixed ready-to-use grout. It is the real do-it-yourself product and can be applied over almost any kind of smooth surface. No cement, no messy powders to mix are needed, just peel the protective film from the back of the tile, stick the mosaic onto the wall, grout, clean and you’re done. The product is available in eight colors for purchase online and two colors for purchase at selected Lowe’s and Do it Best stores”. The kit was developed by Surfaces Southeast in collaboration with DIY Network. Check out the video to see how it works!

Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
