Our kitchen cupboard originally came out of restaurant built in the early 1900's. We started to sand it, but had to get it into the house before the snow flew. It ended up in our kitchen with chippy paint and lots of character. I love it the way that it is, but, the bead board that was behind the faucet was terrible. It was filthy and swollen with water and it wouldn't scrub clean. I would sit and drink tea and devise different plans to put a new back splash on it. No matter what I thought of, there was something to make it untenable. And then, out of desperation for a cleanable back splash, I hit on an idea - galvanized sheeting. It took a little doing - and the job is less than professional, but, I now have a scrubable back splash! Master Hand Grenade snipped the tin, Maid Elizabeth held it in place while I used the skill saw to cut it. As I said, it is less than a professional job, but it will do.
