It's the plastic tile from Home Depot with the adhesive backing. Took some extra time to make sure all the grease was removed from the wall. We are happy with the results.

Oh my! Going to Home Depot as soon as I measure my tacky faux backsplash! Thank you for solving this eyesore problem!

Thanks everyone, and yes I realize I could have worded it better. Afterall I did go from one faux to another

The tile went right over the existing wallpaper, and due to this tile having "texture", you will not see any sign of the wallpaper.

The product I used is called "Bellagio" made by Smart Tiles from Home Depot, and in order to cover over the brick wallpaper I used 9 of the tiles.

The radius cuts for the window aren't so bad as you'll just have to take your time with a pair of scissors. Either through dumb luck or skill I got both radius cuts done without a mistake. You may want to purchase a couple more tiles just in case.

Remember that you're not butting each tile from end to end. You need to partially go over the next tile in order to match the "grout line". The seams will disappear.

Prep was done with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel, especially behind the stove where it was a bit greasy.

Lastly don't lay the tile flat or else you'll get air bubbles. Match the grout seam on one side, then start pressing slowly while working out the air bubbles with your other hand.

Good luck!

Looks great! I was planning to do that exact same tile before ours came with the backsplash update.

Good job! I bet DW is thrilled!

Nice work. Our new Jayco came with a faux brick tile board backsplash and not the brick looking wallpaper. I had the backsplash on my mod list before my rig was delivered.

On our 2013 X23B, we have the faux tile, and it looks just like what your pics show. Apparently Jayco did a good job with it because many people thought it was real tile!
