Barn Wood Backsplash

I have been thinking of different backsplash ideas lately. And I thought, well, I love barn wood and have wanted to use it in some way in my house, but don’t know where. Backsplash! Ok, that’s not really how I think about things, but you get the idea.

So barn wood backsplash. I have never seen it anywhere, but I think it would look really cool. Maybe there is a reason I haven’t seen it though. Maybe it wouldn’t look that great. I’ll take my chances.

Right now I have this as our backsplash in our kitchen. A painted slab of fake brick. Room for improvement.

Since it is an all white kitchen I think it would look so cool to put some slabs of barn wood in as our backsplash for a bit of rustic. Unpainted, unfinished. I DO believe I would LOVE it. I like it when things look purposefully unfinished. The hubs will take some more convincing.

So, try to imagine this as backsplash in a kitchen. Or some rendition of it.

And I love the wood on these stairs. Wouldn’t this be cool in a kitchen? I think it would be so unique and interesting. Or maybe it would just look like an unfinished kitchen.

Or, you could paint some of the pieces or all of them, like these. Have to use our imagination though…backsplash, backsplash.

What kind of backsplash do you have or dream of having?
