In with the New (Recycled)

The wall behind the cook-top was wallpapered and protected with a large sheet of glass.  We carefully removed the glass so I could reuse it.  Since there was now nothing of interest behind it, I thought I'd jazz it up a bit.  I used clear Contact paper on the glass and one inch painter tape to make a grid pattern, cutting and removing the tape and Contact where I wanted the etching.
Armour Etch applied.
Let it sit for five minutes.
Washed it off and pulled up the Contact sheets.
My great contractor Timothy Barnes measured for clips.
Put it in place, etched side to the wall. Clear caulked the bottom.
The finished job.
Nice recycle and easy to clean up my splatters.  I'm looking for a narrow steel shelf to go above it.
