I remodeled our kitchen about three years ago.  I like all the materials that I selected, but I have never been satisfied with the stone backsplash.  It is beautiful natural stone, however the way it was installed each area of tile ends in a different configuration. One area extends to the end of the cabinets, another area past the end of the cabinets and a third area it is used only as a border.  I got the idea to have an artist faux paint some additional stone tiles to make the stone have a more cohesive look.  Here are just a few before and after pics.  The before pics are taken as the artist was preparing the work space.

Do you like the before or after pics better?  Have you ever done a faux painting project yourself?  How did it turn out? While I can see where the stones and the painting begins and ends, it does still accomplish what I was striving to achieve.
