Minnesota home gets update with Aspect Iron Slate

by ACP

Last month, I had the pleasure of attending Haven, a design and DIY blogging conference in Atlanta, Ga. My company sponsored a lunch and learn session with our Aspect Peel & Stick metal, glass and stone backsplash panels.

We had the opportunity to meet with some of the best and the brightest in the DIY blogger community, learn about tools, products and projects, and what’s new and hot in the DIY world. One of those best and brightest was Wendy Scheel, of Old Lake George blog and an Etsy store by the same name.

Wendy wanted to give our Aspect stone tiles a whirl but as luck would have it, she had completed a backsplash project of her own just a few weeks prior. Instead, she decided to install our Aspect Iron Slate peel and stick tiles at the home of Jimmy and Nikki, her neighbors. Iron Slate is one of 9 colors offered in the new Aspect stone line which consists of a revolutionary lightweight and flexible tile product made of genuine, thin-cut stone. You get the look and texture of designer stone tile at a fraction of the price. With its easy, peel and stick installation, Aspect Stone requires no contractor, grout, mortar, or complicated or expensive tools.

She details the start of the project in a blog post, and gives some helpful tips on the way. Since she was doing the project during halftime of a football game and didn’t want to disturb the homeowners too much, she still has a bit left to do. The conclusion of the project will be detailed in a later post.

We are loving the results these Minnesota Vikings fans got with their new kitchen backsplash (even though we’re diehard Packers fans).

Thanks for sharing your experience, Wendy!
