If you want the background story, you can read the Before Story as well as an In Progress Story that has much of the product and paint information. I've also posted the "before" photos here for an instant comparison.
We'll be installing a glass tile backsplash to protect the wall behind the sink (sample shown below). We don't want something to contrast and stand out, and this provides a nice texture and light reflection without making too much of a statement.
Although it was “temporary”, I'm not sure how we lived with this:
Because of the weird configuration of pipes behind the sink, we were unable to accommodate what is supposed to be a second drawer on this GODMORGON sink cabinet. So, we removed the bottom drawer, cut a piece out of the bottom to accommodate the pipes, and simply used more of the storage bins to hold everything.
