Where would you add a peel and stick tile if a free box was delivered to your door? After receiving an offer from this company. Because it is not every day I receive an offer for 30 square feet of peel and stick tiles. And, all I had to do was learn how to install peel & stick tile.
I replied with an “Um, Yes.” And, I cleared a Saturday afternoon because to learn how to install peel and stick tile.
The easiest part was I already had the “where.” Last year we took down the dated, stock cabinets in our almost 20-year-old builder built basement bar. We replaced the cabinets with these shelves.
When we removed the cabinets we installed an MDF board. My goal was to create a chalkboard with a Starbucks vibe. Not so much.
I knew the peel and stick tile would dress up the bar and give the wall behind the shelves a multi-dimensional backdrop.
When the box arrived the only thing I was worried about was if there were enough peel & stick tile panels to cover the approximate 6×5 foot wall behind the bar. A quick non-math more visual calculation gave me hope and the enthusiasm to start the peel ad stick install.

I started at the bottom of the wall (just above the counter) and in the corner behind the kitchen sink. I decided if I screwed up the corner it would be less noticeable hiding behind a roll of paper towels. (the height of the counter) and in the corner behind the kitchen sink.
The project moved right along until I got to the outlets and the shelf hardware. I freaked a bit thinking this was where my project would go off the rails.
Remain calm when faced with outlets.
I removed the shelves’ brackets and outlet covers and used the stone tile scraps to fill in around the outlets and hardware. It went much smoother than I anticipated. I had a little bit of wiggle room with the straight line cuts because the hardware flange and outlet covers covered the cut edges of the stone tile. I used a level with each panel.
Translation: I did not screw it up.
I used a level with each panel and the black plywood made any tiny gaps blend into the wall. The Charcoal Slate tiles included shades of grays. It adds texture and depth to the bar where the chalkboard did not.
I love, love, love the finished look. It took about two hours to complete. The added bonus was there was no cleanup, grout, or glue.
