    Clean

    After you scuff the back surface be sure it is also clean and no oil residue from the manufacturing. Any oil or dust will make for a poor glue job on anything.

      This is what I used to install mine, worked great, I'd use it again.

        The wall is 11'-9" long and the backsplash height will be around 16". It is an old historic building, so you can imagine how straight this painted wall is (not very). Sounds like some others might have come across this before?

          This sounds like a great Idea

          as for the old house thing, I grew up in a very old house and have worked in many, you just have to get it as close as you can, because that's how they were built, and explain before you that start it might not end up perfect because of what your starting with, if they've been there long they'll understand.

          good luck

            I have used liquid nails with a aluminum diamond plate and it worked good. As said before you are just gluing to th surface of the wall, but for decoration it will work fine.

              This method will keep the back splash straight and wrinkle free. The caulking will hide the "imperfections" in the wall. When it comes to old houses, I have heard carpenters say why bother with a level and square as it won't fit or look right ..
