On Bill's advice I used the 511 Impregnator and have never had a stain.

Beautiful Backsplashes:Links to BreathTaking Pictures & Resources

posted by: cupofkindness on 06.21.2004 at 08:25 pm in Kitchens Forum

This thread is to provide links or in-text pictures of backsplashes that, unlike the other backsplash thread in the Gallery, are not a forum member's own backsplash. It is also to provide links/pictures to inspiring manufacturers and designers, tiles, stones, metals, glass and other materials that are backsplash elements. Please limit "conversations" about various links to the "Discussions" section of the Kitchen Forum so that this thread can be a resources list only. Please, please post any completed backsplashes or materials that you have come across as you have worked on your own backsplash. Let's start this thread with the gorgeous red tile backsplash that Sharon G found for me on a "Discussions" side of the Kitchen Forum. Thank you!

RE: How do you store a LARGE collection of spices? (Follow-Up #13)

The jar lascatx used is a bit over 2.75" high with the lid on. The specialty bottle website says 2.75" but when I got the sample I found it was slightly higher. A 5" tall (drawer face height) would probably be deep enough, but how much interior drawer height you get varies depending on who made your drawers so it would be best to check how your cabinet manufacturer's exterior drawer height maps to interior drawer height.

My spice drawer is 4.5" which lets me use the 2 oz glass jars and the 3 oz tin containers with twist lid. BTW, when I measured, I found that the capacity on all the containers was somewhat larger than the 2, 3 or 4 oz they are listed as holding.


Spice drawer 18" wide, 30" deep.

I am fairly new to the boards and am admiring (okay, drooling) over your kitchen! It is just stunning and I know you must wake up every day with excitement to walk in it again!

I have a quick question, if you don't mind. Your decorative backsplash behind the cooktop is exactly what I have in mind for my own kitchen (my husband and I are building a house right now). Do you know where the tile came from?

Thanks so much and enjoy your showroom quality kitchen :)
