Ashley had a lovely kitchen, nice granite, great cabinets, but wait a sec … look closer … closer …is that a backsplash made with pink bathroom tile? What the? Who the? Huh?
 Finally feeling fed up with the pasty pink problem, she devised a quick and easy solution. After a trip to the dollar store, a little effort and even less money, she added tons of pop to her kitchen. 
 I think it adds so much personality and whoulda thunk that the colors in a dollar store placemat would coordinate so much better than the “professionally” laid tile that was there in the first place? Builders, I swear! 
 More to see on her blog Ashley’s Rowhome.

    Because I am a walking IKEA catalogue… I’m pretty sure that she’s used the ‘LJUDA’ placemats you can get from IKEA for only $1.99!!! That’s Australian, so they’re probably even cheaper in the US. Craaaazy!
