Hi! The backsplash and counter are of the same piece cut in half. We honed and sealed it with stone sealer. Occasionally the pasta sauce would spray onto the backsplash but if anything the counters got way more use and potential staining. It was fine as a backsplash and we loved the way the bookended pieces looked!

I don’t get this current fad of doing away with window coverings. Curtains, shades or shutters finish a window. Window covering provide a much needed feeling of enclosure — and privacy — at night.
